The launch trailer for God of War Ragnarok, the concluding chapter in the Norse saga of God of War games from PlayStation and Santa Monica Studio, is finally here. Thankfully, it’s also completely spoiler-free, containing no new scenes apart from what we’ve already seen before in previous trailers. The launch trailer is also graciously short, coming in at 30 seconds and only teasing the big moments to come.
God of War Ragnarok will follow the journey of Kratos and Atreus once again, picking up some time after the events of 2018’s God of War. Ragnarok, an apocalypse-level Norse event, is fast approaching and the duo are preparing for a long and harsh Fimbulwinter. The launch trailer doesn’t offer anything that could potentially be deemed a spoiler so fans can proceed without having any surprises ruined for them.

The description provided by PlayStation on the official website reads:
“From Santa Monica Studio comes the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018). Fimbulwinter is well underway. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.”
In related news, it looks like Kratos won’t be calling Atreus “boy” in God of War Ragnarok. This not only shows great character development on Kratos’ part, but also sadly gets rid of a great meme. If you’re curious about how the first few hours of the game look and feel, make sure you also read our early hands-on impressions before the full review drops on 3 November.
