God of War Ragnarok‘s first trailer was just revealed during PlayStation’s September Showcase. The reveal trailer shows off a teenage Atreus, a protective Kratos, and a looming Ragnarok.
The reveal trailer of God of War Ragnarok shows off an angsty teenager Atreus as he awaits Ragnarok’s arrival. Kratos and Atreus go off on an adventure to find Tyr and eventually find him as the trailer shows.
SPOILER ALERT: Another interesting reveal in the trailer is the return of Freya. Last time we saw Freya, Kratos had just killed her son Baldur in order to stop him from killing his own mother. Freya has vowed to make Kratos pay for her tragedy.
SPOILER ALERT: Lastly, the God of War Ragnarok reveal trailer shows us the post-credit scene of 2018 that teased Thor arriving at Kratos’ door. This will inevitably happen since in the 2018 game Kratos and Atreus had killed both of Thor’s sons, it was in self-defense, but we doubt Thor would care.
God of War Ragnarok was originally announced during last year’s PlayStation September event, since then PlayStation hasn’t revealed any more information regarding the game, only that it is delayed from 2021 to 2022 and that it won’t be a next-gen exclusive, it will be releasing on the PS4 as well as the PS5.
