God of War Ragnarok finally has a brand new trailer showcasing new and returning characters.

The brand new release date for Sony Santa Monica’s hotly-anticipated sequel was first announced earlier today at the PlayStation 2021 showcase. In the trailer, there’s a lot to unpack, including the return of Freya, talking head Mimir, Kratos, and Atreus wanting to explore the goings-on around Ragnarok itself. You can check out the trailer below:

This is for the first time since last year we are seeing anything about God of War Ragnarok apart from the teaser back in September 2020 in which we just saw the Ragnarok subhead, while ominous string orchestral music thundered on in the background.

Even back then, we knew God of War Ragnarok would be coming to both PS4 and PS5 just like Horizon Forbidden West and Spider-man Miles Morales. However, you get free upgrade from PS4 to PS5 for Horizon Forbidden West and Spider-man Miles Morales. That won’t be available for God of War Ragnarok.

You will have to pay a standard $10 upgrade fee for PS5 across all cross-gen first-party PlayStation games going forward.
