God of War Ragnarok will be coming this year after all, but it will take all winter before Kratos and Atreus come out of hiding. Here is when the God of War Ragnarok Release Date will be.

God of War Ragnarok Release Date: November 9, 2022

God of War Ragnarok is coming out exclusively on the PS4 and the PS5 on November 9, 2022.

First announced during Sony's State of Play, the exact status of God of War Ragnarok has been shrouded in mystery for quite a while. Many even speculated that the game won't be coming out until 2023 when Santa Monica Studio finally unveiled the game's release date – along with some details on the game's collector's edition. Judging from the reviews that major video game news websites are giving the game, it's safe to say that this game is very much worth it. Scores of 10/10 dominate the internet, so make sure to grab this game to experience it for yourself.

Taking place three years after the ending of 2018's God of War, Ragnarok sees the arrival of Fimbulwinter, the fabled great winter that spans three summers. The game starts at the tail end of the Fimbulwinter, which will begin the prophesied Ragnarok. Kratos and Atreus begin to travel across the nine realms to seek out a way to prevent Ragnarok, while attempting to uncover Atreus' true identity as Loki. Their journey will lead them directly at odds with the Norse God of War, Tyr, who was, until then, believed to be dead. They will also encounter the God of Thunder Thor, and ally-turned-enemy Freya, who seeks revenge following the death of her son Baldur in the hands of Kratos.

God of War Ragnarok's collector's edition will come with a 16-inch replica of Thor's Hammer, Mjolnir, a Knowledge Keeper's Shrine, a Steelbook Display Case, 2-inch Vanir Twins carvings, and a dwarven dice set in a leather pouch.
