God of War Ragnarok Trailer
A new trailer for God of War Ragnarok has been revealed during the 2021 PlayStation showcase event. The trailer shows us what Kratos and Atreus will be facing through the journey. The trailer also shows off the game’s environment as well as a few new and old characters that players will encounter on the journey.
God of War Ragnarok Gameplay
We get to see Atreus all grown up and being able to do various things on his own since the 2018 game. We do get to see Kratos sled riding a lot in the winter snowy region and even comes in a clash with Freya’s sword nearly getting locked into Kratos’s shield. We also get to see Ragnarok’s threats making Kratos choose between the safety of his family or the safety of the nine realms. In the new game, we will get to explore the various realms that have been shown off that look absolutely beautiful.
While on the exploration journey you will be facing a lot of enemies, Norse gods, and even monsters that will keep attacking you at all times. All through various fights, the Spartan skills of Kratos will be put to heavy use. There are new abilities for Kratos and Atreus alongside various weapons such as the Leviathan Axe, Blades of Chaos, and the Guardian Shield which make a comeback to the game. Only time will tell how what happens to Kratos and Atreus while on the journey to find out a lot of answers.
God of War Ragnarok Platforms and Availability
While this is a PlayStation exclusive game, we will be seeing the game available for the PS5 as well as for the PS4. We can expect pre-orders for the game to begin sometime around year-end or early next year provided the developers reveal more information about the game. Players will have to know that if they want to upgrade the PS4 version of the game to the PS5 version, they will have to pay out $10 for the digital upgrade, something that we saw with Horizon Forbidden West. And, looking at how PlayStation exclusive games are usually priced, we can expect a $69.99 price tag for the game.
God of War Ragnarok System Requirements
At least with regards to the PS5, we can expect a good 4K resolution gameplay at around 60 FPS. The game could also showcase itself on the PlayStation Plus collection which is a paid subscription available to PS5 players. While the game is not available for PC, you could still try to play it by making use of the PlayStation Now service. A service that lets you play PlayStation games from the cloud. While it may be the only way to play the game, you should expect a few hiccups and some input lag here and there, but then, it isn’t the same case for everyone.
