God of War Ragnarok is an upcoming action-adventure title and the sequel to God of War (2018). The narrative continues years after the events of God of War where Kratos has to face the harsh Fimbulwinter and new enemies.
The two main antagonists of the game are Freya and Thor. Having suffered personal loss because of Kratos, these two will prove formidable opponents for Kratos as he braces for their vengeance.
“Freya isn’t just a terrifyingly powerful user of Vanir magic, but also that she’s a formidable warrior in her own right. Enraged by Kratos’ evasion of justice by her hand, Freya will turn every weapon at her disposal towards her son’s killer,” said Grace Orlady, Sr. Community Manager, Santa Monica Studio.
We even got a glimpse at Thor’s legendary hammer- Mjölnir.
The game features enhanced combat mechanics compared to its prequel. Grace says “As a team we’ve worked hard to take our learnings from God of War (2018) and improve upon combat to feel fresh, yet familiar. With God of War Ragnarök, one of our main goals was to push player choice in combat. Whether it’s through hard hitting combos, a mastery of elements, or clever defensive tactics – you will find plenty of opportunity to fight alongside our duo in a way that feels uniquely expressive.”
The game will also feature new attack abilities, a new Runic Summon for Atreus, new combos, and more.
