During yesterday evening's State of Play, PlayStation revealed a new story trailer for God of War Ragnarok. There's a huge amount of excitement surrounding the sequel, and while the title has been shrouded in secrecy up until fairly recently, it appears Sony is finally ready to start showing up what Santa Monica Studio has come up with.
Giving us a better idea of what's to come in this epic adventure, the three-minute preview better explains how this game picks up where 2018's God of War left off. We also get to see Thor and Odin in action along with more thrilling father/son team-ups.
"Set out on an epic and unflinching journey as Kratos and Atreus struggle with holding on and letting go," reads the fantasy game's synopsis. "Witness the changing dynamic of their relationship as they prepare for war; Atreus hungers for knowledge to help him grasp the prophecy of 'Loki,' as Kratos struggles to free himself from the past and be the father his son needs."
"All the while, the eyes of Asgard watch their every move..."
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Amazon Prime Video is in talks with Sony to develop a live-action God of War TV series, so this franchise's future is looking very bright indeed. The Expanse creators Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby are producing the show alongside The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins, so we're hoping for more news on that in the not-too-distant future.
Needless to say, we hope to have more to share on this one soon as we're sure Sony will pull out all the stops to hype what will likely be their biggest game of 2022.
God of War Ragnarok arrives on the Playstation 5 and Playstation 4 on November 9.
