God of War Ragnarok Finally Gets a Gameplay Trailer – IGN

God of War: Ragnarok, the sequel to 2018’s God of War, finally got a gameplay trailer today, showing Kratos and Atreus bickering as ever, and of course slashing their way through enemy hordes.

Revealed at today’s PlayStation Showcase event, it looks like a much more beautiful continuation of where the last game left off. It also gave us a look at both Thor and Freya, the game’s main antagonists. Mjölnir made an appearance, as well as enemies teleporting in via the Bifröst.

As discussed in the PlayStation after show, this version of Thor is much different from the one most people have grown used to from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a much more burly, hedonistic version of the hero, closer to the original Norse legend in mythology than Chris Hemsworth’s hunky Australian.

Ragnarok is set a few years after the first game and will deal with following the mystery of Atreus’ heritage, along with the challenges of Fimbulwinter – the “great winter” – leading up to Ragnarok coming to Midgard.

God of War: Ragnarok had previously only been revealed with a teaser logo. It was subsequently delayed into 2022, and will be coming to PS5 and PS4 with a $10 upgrade path.

IGN’s 2018 God of War review declared the game a masterpiece, calling it “the most stirring and memorable game in the series.” It would go on to win IGN’s Game of the Year 2018 award, at which time the game’s director Cory Barlog sat down with IGN to reflect on God of War‘s successes, development, and more.
