God of War Ragnarok was recently announced to be coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on November 9, 2022. The highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 smash hit PlayStation exclusive had fans clamoring for further information regarding its release date since Santa Monica Studios announced they would delay the title by a year.

The sequel will delve further into the story of the iconic father-and-son duo, Kratos and Atreus, aka Boy. The game will mark the closure of the Norse arc of God of War, which has fans intrigued.

PlayStation recently revealed the Collectors and Jötnar editions, including a bunch of physical goodies and a real-life replica of Thor's trusty hammer, the Mjolnir. Sadly both the Collector's and the Jötnar editions of the game are not yet available to purchase at any retailers in India.

PlayStation announced via their blogpost that the digital as well as physical pre-orders for the game would go live on July 15, 2022.

God of War Ragnarok will follow a similar path to Sony's previous exclusive this year, Horizon Forbidden West, with three digital editions that players can purchase using their PlayStation consoles.

  • Darkdale Armor for Kratos
  • Darkdale Attire for Atreus
  • Darkdale Blades Handle for Blades of Chaos
  • Darkdale Axe Grip for Leviathan Axe

Unlike Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarok will not allow users purchasing the standard PS4 version of the game to upgrade to the PS5 version at no extra cost. PlayStation has stated a $10 price for upgrading to the next-gen version of the title.

Here are the prices for the different digital editions of God of War Ragnarok on the PlayStation Store:

  • Standard Edition (PS5): $69.99
  • Standard Edition (PS4): $59.99
  • Digital Deluxe Edition (PS4 & PS5): $79.99

On the other hand, the digital deluxe edition will be upgradable to the PS5 version at no extra cost, given it's already priced above the standard edition. Pre-ordering any edition of the game before launch will grant gamers the Risen Snow Armor for Kratos and Risen Snow Tunic for Atreus.
