There's not an awful lot that we know about God of War: Ragnarok, and you know what? That might be for the best.

Jumping into a brand-new game that we know absolutely nothing about is a phenomenon that feels like a relic of the past, as trailers, playthroughs, previews and the like are peppered across social media in a bid to promote the title. The last real example we had of a game that took us by surprise was Death Stranding, but that's mostly because the creative mania of Hideo Kojima simply doesn't translate to short teasers.

And fans have found themselves clawing for more details about the PlayStation's biggest launch of the rest of the year - Ragnarok - in hopes that we can glean any information about what promises to be a dramatic close to Kratos and Atreus' story.

And we've finally got those details - but they're a little tough to find.

With absolutely no fanfare whatsoever, PlayStation has revealed a tidy little morsel about the story waiting for us in the new God of War adventure.

The news comes from the official PlayStation store listing of the game, and it reveals that the game is likely to take place across all nine realms that were hinted at in the first game.

"Fimbulwinter is well underway," reads the description. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and ace fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. The threat of Ragnarok grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms." Ooh.

When Will We Know More About God Of War Ragnarok?

Now that we know Ragnarok isn't that far off at all, landing with us on November 9, but we're not sure when we're likely to see more from the game. It's safe to assume that we'll get some behind-the-scenes looks at the game's development in the months running up to its release. And who knows - maybe we'll get a nice story trailer in the coming months too.

No matter what we see of God of War Ragnarok, we're still excited nonetheless. No matter which of the Nine Realms we find ourselves in, we'll be happy to see Kratos and Atreus again, and hoping that their story's end is a happy one.
