(CTN NEWS) – Today, God of War: Ragnarok, the sequel to the popular action role-playing game God of War 2018, launched on Sony PlayStation 5.
The game follows Kratos and his son Atreus in the Norse mythological world sometime after the events of the first game.
So far, everything we know about the game is listed below.
Is God of War Ragnarok coming to PlayStation 4?
When God of War Ragnarok was developing, many thought it would be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. In a Q&A with PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst earlier this year, it was confirmed that the game would also be available on older consoles.
Sony has not yet revealed if the two versions differ, but the company’s God of War Ragnarok website indicates that PlayStation 4 digital and disc owners can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 digital version for an additional fee.
What about the PC version?
Based on Sony’s track record of porting PlayStation-exclusive titles to the PC, the latest installment in the God of War franchise might take a while. For example, Sony took three years to release God of War 2018 for the PC.
God of War Ragnarok Story
A glimpse of Thor visiting Kratos’ house is shown in the trailer years after Kratos kills Freya’s son Baldur in Jotunheim.
In addition to Freya and Thor, Atreus is now in his teens, and he and Mimir must face new and formidable enemies. In addition, Sony has added Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard to the game.
In the trailer, Angrboda, a giant character, is introduced. We also see Thor’s half-brother, Odin’s son, Tyr, alive and imprisoned by Odin at the end of the trailer.
Is the combat any different?
God of War Ragnarok trailer shows Kratos jumping and grappling onto things while retaining his Blade of Chaos.
