God of War Ragnarök Release Date Confirmed with a Wild New Trailer
On the 15 of July 10:00 a.m. sharp (ET for North America, local time for other regions) God of War: Ragnarok will go up live for pre-orders. The game is expected to become available in three editions – they include Standard, collectors, and Jotnar Edition.
Sony is in possession of a sweet upgrade surprise in its kitty. If you buy the PlayStation 4 version of God of War: Ragnarok, you should be able to upgrade to its PlayStation 5 version by paying just $10. Sony also has shared an official unboxing video of all the three editions that showcases the special items that buyers would get with each one.
God of War Ragnarök Editions
The collector’s edition throws in some items which include a steel book display case, two-inch Vanir Twins Carvings, a Dwarven Dice set, and a 16-inch replica of Thor’s hammer called Mjolnir.
The Jotnar Edition Further builds on the collector’s Edition by bringing in a pin set that represents Kratos, Atreus, and Faye’s Soul Animals. A 7-inch vinyl record that features Bear McCreary’s tracks, a cool Yggdrasil map printed on a cloth, and a Draupnir Ring.
More Beast and Cataclysmic Fights
Nothing new from a storyline perspective was revealed in the latest God of War: Ragnarok Trailer. However, there is some meat at the end, that shows the father-son duo staring at a towering wolf. If you are familiar with Norse tales, you should know that the wolf is the child of Loki and a giantess named Angrboda. It is this legendary wolf that is associated with the namesake cataclysmic events called Ragnarok prophesied in Norse Mythology.
Fenrir is the second giant that appeared in the God of War Franchise following the World Snake Jormungandr. Interestingly, the two giants are said to be siblings, with Goddess Hel being the third child in the family. While Fenrir’s addition to the game would definitely bring chaos, the more interesting debut will be Tyr, the Norse God of War, who appeared at the end of the first trailer released in September last year.
It would be interesting for you to see what role Kratos’ Norse equivalent plays in God of War: Ragnarok. But compared to Kratos’s rage from the original God of War Series revolving around Olympian gods, Tyr looks a lot calmer and even more composed. But then, so seemed Baldur in the God of War Revival, before his vengeance turned him into a killing machine and was finally killed by Kratos, which made Freya very sad and Angry at Kratos.
