Fans of the popular and long-running video game series God of War have been eagerly awaiting any news about the next game in the franchise and, at the PS5 showcase event late last year, they got their wish as God of War: Ragnarok was announced.


Details are still scarce for the sequel at the moment with the news not long announced, but we will keep updating this page with information as and when we get it – and we hope we get more soon as our excitement levels are high for this one.

The last God of War was released to critical acclaim back in 2018 and was the winner of a ton of awards, so it’s no surprise that a sequel is on the way and fans are losing their minds over its announcement.

Here’s everything we know so far about the latest game in the God of War series. If you’re looking for news on other upcoming releases, and there are a lot of them, we have many covered ranging from Lego Star Wars to Gotham Knights to Ashes of Creation.

When is the God of War Ragnarok release date?


Originally, we had thought that the new God of War would be part of the 2021 line-up and would likely take pride of place as one of the elite games for the years gaming season – now that is starting to look unlikely.

While games like Horizon Forbidden West and Ratchet and Clank are still being discussed with a 2021 release, all has been quiet on the God of War: Ragnarok front since the announcement so the smart money would be on this not being with us until 2022 – and we would be inclined to lean towards late 2022 at that.

Can I pre-order God of War Ragnarok?

Not yet! The game is eyeing a release in 2021, but you can’t order your copy just yet. Of course, only time will tell if this goes down in history as one of the best PS5 games, but Sony fans will want to get their order in nice and early. We’ll let you know when pre-orders open. We could learn more at Sony’s next State Of Play event.

What platforms can I get God of War Ragnarok on?

Just the one – the PS5, as this is a Sony exclusive – we can only imagine how good this will look when we play it on the super-powerful machine. Hopefully, we will all be able to get one by then, if the PS5 stock issues calm down a bit.

What is the God of War Ragnarok story?

Sony are keeping their cards close to their chest when it comes to God of War: Ragnarok but we do know a few things. For one, look for the big teased fight between Kratos and Thor to kick off in spectacular fashion when we get our hands on the game.

Expect more detailed information to start being released over the coming months as the promotional campaign really kicks off- but we are eager to learn as much as we can about the much-anticipated sequel.

Is there a trailer for God of War Ragnarok?

Revealed to the delight of many at the PS5 Showcase event last year, here’s the first teaser trailer for God Of War: Ragnarok.
