The long-expected title of God of War Ragnarok has now been confirmed. The rumor mill has been hard at work trying to discourage fans that Ragnarok would be the game’s concluding suffix but to no avail.
Already, the game is promising a lot: Sony’s Santa Monica Studio has stated that the upcoming match would conclude the Norse saga beginning in God of War (2018), so the stakes are clearly high.
Extremely high levels of fan enthusiasm have been observed: Since the last Sony PlayStation Showcase on September 9, 2021, the trailer for God of War: Ragnarok has amassed the most views.
When you consider that many of those trailers have millions of views, that’s a big deal. There have been more than 12 million plays of God of War: Ragnarok so far. Whoever said that the demand for Sony-only titles would decline is clearly wrong.
In this sequel, Kratos and Atreus return to the Norse world in an effort to prevent the titular Ragnarok from occurring. Read on for details about God of War: Ragnarok, including when it’ll be available.
The release date of God of War: Ragnarök is still unknown.

On November 9, 2022, PS5 and PS4 owners can get their hands on God of War: Ragnarok. To refresh your memory, Ragnarok was initially set for a release in 2021, however that date was pushed to 2022 around the middle of that year.
The PlayStation Blog has revealed that, in addition to the PlayStation 5, God of War: Ragnarök will be available for the PlayStation 4. In terms of commerce, it makes sense to release on both platforms.
It’s problematic since a game like Ragnarök costs a lot to develop, and Sony undoubtedly wants as many people as possible to buy a copy when it debuts, even if it means dialing back the entire product to adapt for the less powerful hardware.
Keeping this in mind, releasing it for PS4 is probably a smart business move, much like the release of Horizon Forbidden West, another PlayStation exclusive, was beneficial because it appealed to players of many generations.
Since Ragnarök is scheduled for release in 2022, it makes sense for it to debut on both systems, provided that the PS4 version does not delay the release of the PS5 version. The massive installed base of over 117 million PS4s means that there will always be a market for older consoles.
Promotional items for early buyers.
Let’s talk about the pre-order bonus first. A voucher code for the digital download of Kratos’s Risen Snow Armor and Atreus’s Risen Snow Tunic is included with the pre-order of any edition of God of War: Ragnarök.
General Publishin’ Edition
The Standard Edition includes the complete game on PS4 or PS5 and nothing else (besides the pre-order goodies, of course). It will cost you an extra ten dollars if you order the PlayStation 4 version of the game and then decide you want to play it on the PlayStation 5 instead.
