The first trailer for God of War: Ragnarok is here
Kratos and Atreus are back in the new sequel
Sony has shown off the first trailer for the next God of War game.
God of War: Ragnarok is a direct sequel to the 2018 God of War game and sees both Kratos and his son Atreus returning.
The game is set a few years after the events of the last game, where the freezing winds of Fimbulwinter have come to Midgard.

Santa Monica Studio‘s senior community manager Grace Orlady gave a rundown of the game’s plot synopsis on the official PlayStation Blog.
“While the last game built an enormous amount of trust and understanding between father and son, there is still a great deal of complexity in their interactions – especially after the revelation of Atreus’ Giant heritage and the hidden prophecy only Kratos saw,” Orlady says.
“Atreus is desperately curious. Like most young people, he wants to understand who he is more than anything. In this case, he wants to understand who he could be. The mystery of Loki’s role in the upcoming conflict is something that Atreus cannot let go of. He wants to keep his family safe, but Atreus also doesn’t want to stand by and do nothing while conflict consumes the Nine Realms.
“Kratos, still bearing the knowledge of his past mistakes, wants to spare Atreus the bloody lessons he learned from his conflict with gods. He wants to keep his son safe, above all, and their confrontation with Baldur has vindicated the belief that only tragedy will come from further entanglements with the Aesir.
“Together, Kratos and Atreus will have to make a choice about which path they will take. Whatever they choose will define the fate of all those living in the Nine Realms as Ragnarök approaches.”
Players will be able to visit all of the Nine Realms in Ragnarok, as opposed to six in the previous game.
The game will include Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard, which were unreachable in the 2016 title. Locations from the last game will also have new areas to visit.
