Last year, Sony Santa Monica didn’t even confirm the next God of the warthe official name. Over the past year, however, he has finally started draw the curtain on God of War Ragnarok in great mannersand now a new trailer for today’s State of Play showcase reveals even more about its world and the mythological obstacles Kratos and his son will face.

The new trailer is packed with cool action shots of Dad of War and his weirdly teenage Aaron Paul, Atreus, battling harpies, watching giant flying jellyfish float on the horizon, and unleashing Tire, the Norse god of war, servitude. But because it’s the new God of the war series, the trailer didn’t skimp on the characters reading Kratos for dirt, calling him a fake god, saying no one worships him, and that he’s just a blood-drunk jester.


Although Kratos doesn’t seem phased by his public roasting, the trailer suggests that Atreus is hiding a secret from his dear old father, and the two have an argument that culminates in Kratos stating that he doesn’t need anyone to protect him. The trailer sting even teases us with a brief glimpse of a showdown between Kratos and Thor. Let the sparks fly.

The sequel to the critically acclaimed 2018 reboot of the action franchise, God of War Ragnarok was originally supposed to be released last year before being delayed. The extra production time was necessary in part due to work complications from covid-19, as well as Kratos voice actor Christopher Judge need time to recover of the surgery he underwent in the second half of 2019.

Where 2018 God of the war saw Kratos guide his young son through Midgard on a journey to scatter the ashes of his wife Faye atop the highest mountain, the sequel sees them searching for answers about the identity of a now-adolescent Atreus. Thor and Freya also show up at one point to try and fight off the duo. The new game will be also have an expanded map, more verticality and a new director, although it will still be presented as a single cinematic shot. More important again, there will be dog sledding you can use to traverse the frozen tundra of Scandinavia with the best friends a god of war has ever had.

Whereas Ragnarok won’t be the last God of the war game, this will be the final chapter of his Norse saga. Producer Cory Barlog revealed there won’t be a third game because trilogies just take too long. Any big questions fans have about the 2018 game should be answered soon enough then.

God of War Ragnarok is set to release on November 9 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
