God of War Ragnarok is almost here, and sooner than expected. Kratos’ story had already been delayed once, and fans expected that again this time around. The fear of many fans was that the God of War Ragnarok release date would be pushed back. Turns out, that’s not the case. God of War: Ragnarok is actually coming out this year. So when is the game coming out?
When is the God of War Ragnarok release date?
God of War fans have been clamoring for a release date, and now a new cinematic trailer has officially revealed that Ragnarok will launch on November 9th, 2022. God of War Ragnarok will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
The announcement of the release date has also brought a new trailer. Kratos and Atreyus have been fighting the gods of Norse mythology this whole time, it seems. Their new powers and experience have born out in a tougher and much darker tone for the new game. Judging by the trailer, things are about to get very chaotic.
Check out the trailer for the sequel down below.
To go along with the new gameplay reveal, the company also jumped ahead of the hype with various Collector’s Editions. You can see the trailer for these various editions below, as well as a full rundown of what each variant includes. It looks like Sony is going all in on the various pre-order and special editions kick that many modern games have done.
The first version of the game is the “Launch Edition”. This simply includes two little pieces of DLC, the Kratos Risen Snow Armor and Atreus Risen Snow Tunic cosmetic.
There are the Standard Edition that’s just the game if you don’t want to pay more. An upgraded variant called the “Digital Deluxe Edition” will have Darkdale gear and cosmetics, the game’s digital soundtrack, a mini artbook and an Avatar Set.
Beyond that, there’s a Collector’s Edition and a special further variant. The “Collector’s Edition” comes with a steelbook case and some model replicas, such as a 16″ Mjolnir, Dwarven Dice and Vanir Twins carvings. The packaging was inspired by the Knowledge Keeper’s Shrine, and the set also includes Digital Deluxe Edition content.
Finally, the “Jotnar Edition” includes all of the content mentioned above, with a few additions. These include a vinyl record of the soundtrack, Draupnir Ring, cloth map, and Brok’s Dice Set instead of Dwarven Dice.
