WATCH: The new God of War Ragnarök trailer FINALLY reveals the release date

All those fears of the game being pushed to 2023 can finally be put to rest.

That was a close one!


For months and months, there have been rumours that Sony might push its most-anticipated game from 2022, and the long, LONG silence of confirmation around an actual release date only made gamers and fans all the more antsy.

Today, finally, those fears can be put to rest, as a new cinematic trailer for God of War Ragnarök has given a concrete release date – and it is still very much arriving this year!

Four years since the award-winning, massively-selling, critically-adored first God of War game (at least in this new Norse setting), we will continue to control Kratos, paired with his sharp-shooting son Atreus, in the new adventure.

The official game synopsis is as follows:


"Join Kratos and Atreus on a mythic journey for answers before the prophesied battle that will end the world. All the while, the eyes of Asgard watch their every move..."

God of War Ragnarök will arrive on PS5 and PS4 on Wednesday, 9 November. Check out the new cinematic trailer right here:
