It's hammer time over in Midgard, as a new God of War Ragnarok story trailer shows what Sony Santa Monica has been up to behind the scenes. It seems like we've been waiting an eternity for the sequel to 2018's God of War, but with Kratos picking up the Leviathan Axe and Blades of Chaos all over again, Ragnarok is ready to slash its way to the top of the charts.

In 2018, God of War made a bold pivot away from the tried and tested setting of Ancient Greece. If this wasn't enough, the team switched up the dynamic by giving Kratos a son. The arrow-shooting Atreus was a breath of fresh air compared to the gruff Ghost of Sparta, and in 2022, the dynamic duo are back.

What Does The God Of War Ragnarok Story Trailer Show?

Despite a lengthy wait between games, we've seen relatively little of Ragnarok ahead of its November 9 release. Thankfully, an action-packed God of War Ragnarok story trailer dropped at the Sony State of Play. As we near Ragnarok's release, it remains to be seen whether this is the last trailer we'll see, or Sony will ramp up its marketing.

An older Atreus is still playing second fiddle to daddy dearest, but with some thinking this might be the end of the road for Kratos - handing the franchise over to Atreus - it makes sense. With a more mature version of Atreus being the focus of the trailer, Kratos is keeping secrets from his son about his true heritage, and the pair seem at odds with each other. Perhaps the coolest shot of the trailer is Atreus firing an arrow into an eclipse, which we guess could trigger the events of Ragnarok.

There are a few cool shots of gameplay here, including a wintery sled scene, magic being summoned from the ground, and plenty of miniboss battles. We get to see Kratos pummel the Valkyries, and given that they were some of the most challenging enemies of 2018's game, we're sure they'll be even harder this time around.

 

What Will God Of War Ragnarok's Final Battle Be?

Away from the strained father and son relationship or flying Valkyries, there are glimpses of Freya, the imposing Tyr, and what look to be the wolves Skoll and Hati. However, the other big talking point is Kratos and Thor going blade to hammer. Although there were some grumbles that we've got Ryan Hurst's "Fat Thor" instead of an ab-ripped version like Chris Hemsworth's MCU counterpart, most fans have come to love this cuddly God of Thunder.

The trailer ends with what looks like a boss battle between the pair, but we doubt this is the fantasy epic's endgame. It would be a bit of a blunder to reveal the final battle in a story trailer, and personally, we think Kratos and Thor will end up putting their differences aside. Much like Zeus was the big bad of the OG God of War trilogy, our bets are on Odin being the de facto villain of the piece. With less than two months to go, get ready for God of War Ragnarok to light up the gaming charts like a bolt of thunder.
