God Of War: Ragnarok Updates: God of War: Ragnarok is one of the most expected upcoming PlayStation games, gathering huge publicity despite how little information has been divulged about the game so far.

Not officially subtitled “Ragnarok,” the yet-unnamed sequel will serve as a carry-on of the critically applauded God of War reboot. Fans are excited to see more of it, and there are few likely places Sony’s Santa Monica Studio could reveal gameplay soon.

The sequel of the game was first announced during the September 2020 PlayStation 5 Showcase with a teaser trailer that revealed a new logo, divulging a story about Norse mythology’s Ragnarök, and revealed an initial release window of 2021. No gameplay was shown during the trailer, and there were no hints about when fans could expect a full unveiling of the game.

In June 2021, Santa Monica Studio announced God of War: Ragnarok has been held up into 2022 and will also launch on PS4, in addition to the PS5.

The decision was made to help the team maintain safety during the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Santa Monica Studio also stated big things were coming, and fans speculated the studio would soon present official gameplay which is exciting.

PlayStation recently established a State of Play event for July 8, featuring gameplay for Bethesda’s Deathloop and updates on several upcoming indie and third-party titles. The announcement also stated updates for first-party games like Horizon Forbidden West and the God of War sequel would not be included, but Sony said it will have updates on these titles as well during the summer.

Given this announcement, one likely option for a gameplay reveal is simply another State of Play event later in the summer. Typically, Sony uses its exhibits to give fans a far deeper look at the upcoming PlayStation exclusives, with the most recent event highlighting around 15 minutes of gameplay for Horizon Forbidden West.

Sony may give God of War: Ragnarok the same cosmetics, dedicating the majority of a State of Play event or a longer PlayStation Showcase event to focus on Kratos and Atreus’ new adventure.

Gameplay could also be revealed during The Game Awards in December. Many studios travel in the process of divulging new information about upcoming titles at large gaming events, and Sony Santa Monica used E3 2016 to reveal the first God of War’s gameplay.

A trailer at The Game Awards could be a smart play, as the show’s reputation for reveals could help increase the viewership and fan base and allow the studio enough time to work on the game in advance. For now, fans will have to wait and see when God of War: Ragnarok will be fully disclosed.
