It’s been about a year since Sony first said that God of War: Ragnarok was officially on its way, and today we’re finally getting our first look at the game. As expected, it look like God of War, with the familiar dual-weapon wielding that Kratos excelled at in the 2018 game. His son, Atreus, looks like he’s grown up in the last few years, and he’s challenging his dear old dad’s decisions as well as proving to be a more capable fighter.
As for the game’s story, it looks to be setting up a conflict with the Norse pantheon of gods — just as Kratos destroyed all of the Greek gods in the first trilogy of games, he might be on that path again here. But he’s definitely fighting it, while Atreus sounds like the one who is more convinced that full-on war is necessary here.
Unsurprisingly, the game looks fantastic, with a variety of new environments and enemies as well as more ways to use Kratos’ Leviathan Axe and Blades of Chaos. But the familiar boat returns, as does the disembodied head Mimir, so get ready for more story time and cutting remarks about Kratos’ perpetually grumpy mood.
Sony unfortunately didn’t have a release date to share; a year ago, the company said God of War: Ragnarok would arrive in 2021, but that’s seeming pretty unlikely at this point.
