God of War Ragnarok has seemingly had one giant of a launch week, smashing its first week target sales and selling over 3.5 million copies. Keeping pace with rising gameplay issues and such, Santa Monica Studio has now rolled out patch [v. 02.03] for Ragnarok, and it has addressed multiple crashing issues, including a case-specific bug that prevents players from progressing in a specific quest.
This has been the fourth mainline [v. 02] patch for the game, coming right after Patch 2.02 that managed to fix crashing issues on the PlayStation 4.
- God of War Ragnarok is the 2018 God of War’s direct successor. It came out on November 9 and has since made waves across the spectrum due to all the hype it accumulated prior to this release.
- After Ragnarok’s day one patch, the developer—Santa Monica Studio—has planned a series of updates for the action-adventure semi free-roam title. So far, we’ve had four of these roll out for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 combined.
- The latest Patch [v. 02.03] has brought fixes for quest progression and rare crashes to the table. Players reported being stuck in the caves during “The Lost Sanctuary” quest in the title, but that issue has since been addressed.
The latest Ragnarok update directly mitigates a specific problem related to the “Quest and Progression” system. Evidently, players’ complaints regarding The Lost Sanctuary quest in the game have been listened to. Here’s what the official patch notes say about the matter at hand.
Quests and Progression
- Fixed a case where players could become stuck in the caves during the quest “The Lost Sanctuary.”
Moreover, further issues have also been cast a lens on in God of War Ragnarok, primarily those that related to the overall stability of the title. Santa Monica Studio has revealed in patch [v. 02.03] that multiple rare crashes have now been fixed. Here’s what the developers have put up on the official website.
Stability and Performance
- Fixed a rare crash when using the equipment menu.
- Fixed a rare crash when browsing the quest list in the journal.
- Fixed a rare crash when navigating using the map.
- Fixed a crash that could appear randomly during gameplay.
In case you missed it, God of War Ragnarok has had a total of 10 different nominations at The Game Awards 2022, setting itself up as a sure-fire candidate for The Game of the Year 2022 award.
Many seem to believe that Ragnarok is a cut above Elden Ring in multiple aspects, but only time will tell which IP manages to grab this ultimate distinction.
In relatively recent times, God of War Ragnarok’s photo mode leak showed Kratos winking, which, in all its glory, is a new mechanic in the photo-snapping feature compared to the title’s 2018 predecessor. On that front, Ragnarok’s Photo Mode functionality wasn’t available on launch for the game.
However, it will be available in one of the forthcoming updates. Stick around until then to capture Kratos going up against Thor in high definition.
