God Of War: Ragnarok Gets A New Trailer, Hints Of A Fight With Thor At PlayStation 5 Showcase

  • After being announced last year with a short teaser that gave us basically no information about the game--or even its official, final title--God of War: Ragnarok was featured during Thursday's PlayStation Showcase event with a new trailer. The new look at the game showed Kratos and Atreus venturing through the frozen lands of Fimbulwinter, the deadly winter ahead of the end of the world. It sounds like their goal is to locate the Norse god of war, Tyr.

    The trailer also showed a whole bunch of returning characters from 2018's God of War, as well as some new threats--including Thor, the god of Thunder, who looks like he'll stand as an antagonist to Kratos and Atreus. There's also the interpersonal relationship between Kratos and Atreus, who's hoping to find out more about his identity as Loki following the events of God of War.

    After the showcase, Sony Santa Monica also revealed that God of War 2018's director, Cory Barlog, isn't the director of God of War: Ragnarok. Instead, Eric Williams, who formerly worked as God of War's combat and systems designer and who has worked on every game in the series, is taking on the director role. Barlog, who appeared on Sony's after-showcase stream, said that he thought it was good for God of War to get a "fresh perspective" for each game, but didn't reveal what else he might be working on.Continue Reading at GameSpot
