We finally know when God of War Ragnarok will release: Sony today confirmed the release date for Ragnarok on PS4 and PS5 as November 9, 2022, confirming repeated assurances that the game will be available this year. The highly anticipated release date has been revealed as part of a short new PC trailer, which you can watch below. It shows Kratos and Atreus fighting various enemies and talking about how they are not alone before taking on what appears to be Fenrir.
Along with the news, Sony also revealed that pre-orders for God of War Ragnarok will start on July 15 (starting at 7:00 AM PT / 10:00 AM ET for those in the United States) and showcased some of the special editions that will be available. Pre-order any edition to receive a snow-themed pack for Kratos and Atreus.
As for the different editions of the game, there will be four versions of Ragnarok available for purchase: Standard, Digital Deluxe, Collector’s and Jotnar edition. The last three include access to the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game; if you buy the standard PS4 version, you will have the option to purchase the PS5 version for $10. Pricing for these editions has yet to be announced, but the Jotnar edition in particular looks like an expensive option as it includes a vinyl record, a set of pins, a cloth card, a 16″ copy of Mjolnir and more.
Ragnarok was previously confirmed to release in 2022 for PS4 and PS5 after it was delayed last year. A ratings list in South Korea recently suggested that the action game developed by Sony Santa Monica is indeed approaching the finish line, though Sony has yet to give a more precise release date. Corey Barlog, who directed the previous game in the series, spoke about the project in April, saying the developers are “perfectionists” and “work hard.” Since then, developers at the studio have been harassed due to the lack of a release date, and it was reported that it should be announced at the end of June.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Ragnarok, although it’s a direct sequel to 2018’s God of War and continues the story of Kratos and Atreus as they fight the fury of the Norse gods. This will wrap up this Scandinavian chapter of the franchise, as Sony Santa Monica wanted to keep this part of the story from getting too unwieldy.
