Sony’s Santa Monica studio has been hard at work since God of War: Ragnarok was announced two years ago. Based on the most recent story trailer we got during the State of Play, the sequel has been one of the most anticipated games in recent memory.
Currently, the studio has announced that God of War: Ragnarok has gone gold, which means it has sent off the final version to prepare for its November 9 release. Any game developer would be proud of that achievement, but it’s especially impressive for a game as ambitious as this one. It would be nice if they had a little time to celebrate before they started working on patches and bug fixes.
God of War Ragnarok Likely to Not See Any More Delays

It picks up three years after Fimbulwinter, and gives way to the apocalyptic Ragnorak three years after its predecessor. While attempting to prevent the event from occurring, Kratos and his son Arteus will be caught up in Norse gods’ family drama. In addition to looking stunning, the game promises some exciting new gameplay mechanics. It’s also fun to get a new perspective on the Norse pantheon after so many years of MCU dominance.
There is a lot to look forward to gameplay-wise, as Kratos will have access to all of his classic chains weapons and a redesigned battle axe. In addition, there will be some new elemental attacks, namely fire and ice-charged attacks, as well as shields and parries. You can expect all the hack-and-slash, axe-throwing goodness we know and love, but with some new upgrades.
Ragnarok is on my mind and I’m looking forward to it, and I’ll be here before you know it.
