  • God of War Ragnarok will be released on November 9 for PlayStation 5 ($70) and PS4 ($60).
  • The game is a sequel to the 2018 reboot, continuing the story of Kratos and Atreus.
  • The collector’s edition ($200) and the special Jötnar edition ($260) are currently sold out.

God of War Ragnarok, one of 2022’s most anticipated video games, will launch on November 9 as a PlayStation exclusive. The single-player adventure is a direct sequel to the franchise’s 2018 reboot, which received critical acclaim for its storytelling, visuals, and redefined combat system.

Players once again control Kratos and his son Atreus as they confront the Norse gods and Ragnarok, the prophesied end of the world. The previous game focused on Kratos’ struggles to hide his past as the violent God of War and become a supportive father to Atreus, who was unaware he was the son of a god.

For gamers who didn’t get a chance to play the 2018 God of War, Sony has released a blog detailing that game’s events, along with a video summarizing the plot featuring actress Felicia Day.

God of War Ragnarok will continue to expand on the roleplaying and exploration gameplay elements introduced in the previous game, but Sony hasn’t detailed the major changes we can expect. We do know that God of War Ragnarok will benefit from the increased power of the PlayStation 5 and its DualSense controller, but the game will still be available with downgraded visuals on PS4.

God of War Ragnarok release date and price

God of War Ragnarok will be released on November 9 for PlayStation 5 and PS4, priced at $70 and $60, respectively. Players who preorder the game or purchase it at launch will receive in-game armor for Kratos and a cosmetic outfit for Atreus.

Players who buy the PS4 version of God of War Ragnarok can upgrade to the PS5 version for $10 after purchase.

Is God of War Ragnarok the final game in the series?

Though God of War Ragnarok won’t be the last God of War game, it will be the final installment in the series’ Norse saga. Sony confirmed the news in a post-show interview after its September 2021 game showcase.
