He was expected at the PlayStation Showcase and Kratos was not begging … well, maybe a little, because it was the final surprise of an event full of video games. The sequel to the award-winning title from Sony Santa Monica Studio has been revealed in an impressive gameplay trailer, which makes it clear that this is the direct sequel to the 2018 game. Additionally, God of War Ragnarok is confirmed as the official title.
In the video we can see Kratos with his son Atreus, a character we already met in the previous installment. Through the official PlayStation blog it has been confirmed that the story takes place years after the events narrated in the previous game. The true legacy of the child will be one of the main themes, while Freya and Thor will rise as the antagonists of the adventure. In addition to new runes and abilities, players will be able to tour the nine kingdoms.
Recall that the video game will be released on both PS4 and PS5, although it still has no official date.

God of War, the long-awaited sequel to Sony Santa Monica Studio
It was last June when Sony announced that the sequel to God of War was finally going to 2022 to offer “a top quality game”. In the voice of the Californian study, these were his words: “We are focused on offering a top quality game while maintaining the health and well-being of our team, employees and families. With this in mind, we have decided to change our launch framework to 2022 ”. Its release is still planned for PS5 and also PS4.
In any case, Cory Barlog, director of the title, has already warned that this delivery will arrive in stores “when it is ready”; even if that meant delays along the way. After the events narrated in the celebrated iteration of 2018, which was a restart in many ways for the saga, it is time to know the future of both Kratos and his son Atreus. Mythology, mysteries, stories, and third-person action are back.
Both this sequel to God of War and Gran Turismo 7 are among the titles that will require a payment of an additional 10 euros if we want to update from PS4 to the PlayStation 5 version. It will not be a free update.
God of War Ragnarok will be released on PlayStation 5 and PS4.
Once the event is complete, we invite you to take a look at what this PlaySation Showcase has given of itself through this link.
