GOD OF WAR RAGNARÖK Cinematic Trailer And Release Date
God of War Ragnarok is one of the most anticipated games still to come this year, and PlayStation has officially given the upcoming sequel a release date: November 9th, 2022. The announcement also came with a new, CGI-trailer called Father And Son that sees series lead Kratos and his son Atreus battling off the forces of both Muspelheim and Niflheim before facing the world-eating wolf, Fenrir.
Developer Sony Santa Monica also released an unboxing video for Ragnarok’s Collector’s Edition and Jotun Edition. The video, helmed by Art Director Rafael Grassetti and Thor motion capture and voice actor Ryan Hurst, shows off the various physical goodies players can expect to find inside the boxes, including a steel book case, carved figurines, and a model replica of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir.
The news of Ragnarök’s release date comes after fan pressure to learn the release date turned toxic. Sony Santa Monica issued a statement condemning such conduct, stating that “passion should not be toxic nor come at the expense of any human being’s dignity.” This sentiment was echoed by many others in the gaming industry, including other development studios, actors, and media personalities.
God of War Ragnarök will come out on November 9th, 2022, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
