Sony ended its PlayStation 5 showcase with a fast tease for what appears to be a follow-up to the highly-lauded God of War reboot on the PS5. Beyond the discharge yr — 2021 — we don’t but know a lot in regards to the title. Kratos, together with Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, will each make a return, nonetheless. The follow-up will probably proceed pulling on Norse mythology as nicely.

The temporary teaser for the subsequent God of War featured dialogue from Kratos, presumably talking to Atreus, saying, “The time draws near. You must prepare yourself.” The teaser concludes with the phrase “Ragnarok is coming.”

A Ragnarok-focused sequel is sensible; not solely has it been teased earlier than, God of War left loads of room for one more recreation in that world. In our evaluation of the 2018 dad recreation, which targeted on an older and wiser Kratos, we stated that the reboot had “plenty of gore, but now the guts have meatiness.”

God of War — the primary one, that’s — will even be a component of the newly-announced PlayStation Plus Collection on the PS5, a subscription service that appears to be Sony’s reply to Xbox Game Pass. Sony’s next-gen console is out Nov. 12 for $499, or $399 with out the optical disc drive.
