God of War Ragnarok DLC armour is your reward for pre-ordering or buying the deluxe edition. God of War Ragnarok has some RPG elements, as Kratos can equip better armour and items to improve his stats. The DLC armour can be equipped early on for a quick boost to your stats. Here is everything you need to know about God of War Ragnarok DLC armour.

There are two DLC armour sets available in the game. If you pre-ordered the digital deluxe edition of God of War Ragnarok, you will have access to both of them. For pre-ordering the game, you get the Risen Snow armour set. Included in the digital deluxe edition is the Darkdale armour.

With the Risen Snow set, you get a breastplate, gauntlets and a girdle for Kratos, as well as an outfit for Atreus. The armour pieces for Kratos give big boosts to strength and defence, as well as increased luck. The breastplate has a special ability called Risen Might, which gives a chance for Kratos to get a boost of strength and stagger resistance when launching an enemy into the air. The other armour pieces also increase stun done to airborne enemies.

With the Darkdale set, you get a full set of Kratos armour, a new tunic for Atreus, as well as a grip for the Leviathan Axe and handles for the Blades of Chaos. The Darkdale chest armour has an effect called Enraged Slayer which restores Rage and Health when you get kills in Spartan Rage mode. The full set grants increased strength, defence, and runic, while also increasing Rage gains from killing enemies afflicted by status effects using runic attacks. The handle for the Leviathan axe makes kills with Frost Awakened attacks cause shockwaves, and also reactivates Frost Awakened on the axe. Similarly, the Darkdale handles for the Blades of Chaos make Flame Whiplash kills create a shockwave and cause increased burn effects.

You do not simply start God of War Ragnarok with the DLC armours equipped, or sitting in your inventory. You need to go and pick them up, but thankfully you do not have to wait long to do so. Roughly an hour into the game, you will come to Brok and Sindri's house. When you can, head over to Brok's counter. There is a chest on the right side of it.

Interact with this chest and you will find both the Darkdale set and the Risen Snow set inside. Once you have retrieved them, you can equip any of the pieces of either set straight away and begin reaping the rewards.

That is it for the God of War Ragnarok DLC armour. For more on the game, check out these God of War Ragnarok early game tips and tricks.
