Everything we know so far about God of War Ragnarok, the new PS5 sequel

The long awaited PS5 game God of War Ragnarok is soon here and we’re here to let you know everything that we know so far about the new sequel that was the big finale of the PlayStation September showcase. The trailer showed us plenty of new details including new characters and potential plot points. 


When it comes to its release date, Sony Santa Monica and Playstation Studios announced that God of War Ragnarok will be released in 2022. The delay from 2021 to 2022 was inevitable and expected, especially since we hadn’t seen any trailers, gameplay, or story details until recently.


With the new trailer, we now know that years have passed since the end of 2018’s God of War. This is evidenced by the older and more confident Atreus. In the new God of War Ragnarak, father and son must face the impending Ragnarok, the legendary Norse version of an apocalypse, facing enemies like Freya and Thor. The latter is extremely popular in a number of industries including the film industry, with many stand-alone movies, and the gaming industry with a number of video games and slots at the top online gambling sites in Canada.



The trailer also introduces new characters into the mix like Angrboda, who is ‘one of the last remaining giants’, and Tyr who is the son of Odin, half-brother of Thor and Baldur. The latter is played by Richard Schiff while Angrboda is played by Laya Hayes. The incredible Christopher Judge returns as Kratos with Atreus being played by Sunny Suljic. Other character additions include:

  • Freya played by Danielle Bisutti

  • Thor played by Ryan Hurst

  • Tyr played Ben Prendergast

  • Mimir played by Alastair Duncan

  • Sindri played by Adam Harrington

  • Brok played by Robert Craighead

  • Durlin played by Usman Ally

God of War Ragnarok made its debut at last year’s PS5 showcase with a brief and cryptic teaser trailer. We don’t see any footage of the game, but we do see a Norse symbol and the confirmation that Ragnarok is coming. In the background, you can also hear Kratos warning Atreus and a warning to the audience to prepare themselves. 


Eric Williams is taking on the role as director for this new game. He has worked on the God of War series since 2004.

Staying true to what we did last time, it's keeping the father-son relationship moving,’ explains Williams. ‘It doesn't just stop, like, 'oh, we finished this for mom, we're good.' No, like, there's a lot more that goes on in life, and it continues moving forward. Last time, it was one kid with a lot of adults talking. This is like, well, there are some different perspectives. We're gonna see it from a kid's perspective in the world, figuring things out that they thought were black and white, or maybe much grayer, and a lot more family dynamics.’

Although God of War Ragnarok will be available for PS5, it will not be exclusive to it. The game will also be released for PS4, making it a cross-gen release.
