God of War Ragnarok is the tentative title for the upcoming action-adventure game in development by Santa Monica Studio and to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE). It is scheduled to be released in 2021 for the PlayStation 5 (PS5). It will be the ninth installment in the God of War series, the ninth chronologically, and the sequel to 2018’s God of War. Loosely based on Norse mythology, the game will be set in ancient Norway and feature series protagonists Kratos, the former Greek God of War who remains the only playable character, and his young son Atreus. The game is expected to kick off the events of Ragnarök, a series of events that bring about the end of days and depict the deaths of the Norse gods in Norse mythology.
Embark on an epic and heartfelt journey as Kratos and Atreus struggle with holding on and letting go. Against a backdrop of Norse Realms torn asunder by the fury of the Aesir, they’ve been trying their utmost to undo the end times. But despite their best efforts, Fimbulwinter presses onward.
Witness the changing dynamic of the father-son relationship as they fight for survival; Atreus thirsts for knowledge to help him understand the prophecy of ‘Loki’, as Kratos struggles to break free of his past and be the father his son needs.
See for yourself how fate will force a choice upon them: between their own safety or the safety of the realms. All the while, hostile Asgardian forces assemble…
- Venture through all Nine Realms towards the prophesied battle that will end the world.
- Vanquish Norse gods and monsters alike in fluid, expressive combat.
- Explore in wonder through stunning mythological landscapes.
