God of War Ragnarok currently stands as one of the most anticipated games to release in 2022, let alone in November. Apparently, some retailers across the world have broken the street date rule of the action-adventure title, thereby selling copies of the title almost two weeks ahead of release.
In doing so, spoilers and leaked videos of crucial gameplay sequences have started to emerge left and right, with the r/GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit serving to be the breeding ground of the matter at hand.
However, in an unusual turn of events, one particular leaked video encompassing the grand battle between Kratos and Thor has been live on YouTube for over 24 hours now, garnering more than 2 million views. Evidently, Sony has not issued a DMCA to the YouTube channel, hence the reason the footage is still up.
- God of War Ragnarok is scheduled to release on the 9th of November, but the game is already out in the wild. Multiple people seem to have their hands on the title already and are therefore posting videos of Ragnarok’s major fight sequences.
- Usually, such videos, especially those that leak out way ahead of a particular product’s official release, get taken down by its publisher or owner. To our surprise, this does not seem to be the case for one particular video on YouTube, encompassing the full Kratos vs Thor gameplay video.
- The footage in question has managed to amass more than 2 million videos on YouTube in a span of 24 hours.
YouTuber OYUNCU IZLE is the man involved here, posting a full-blown 10-minute video on YouTube that seems to be comprising the real deal. In case you’re not generally annoyed by spoilers or your curiosity has got the better of you, we’ll leave the link to the video down below.
Of course, due to our sprawling love for the God of War franchise, we won’t be spoiling anything in this write-up for our beloved fans. However, we cannot promise this on behalf of the rising-in-popularity video embedded above, should you choose to check it out and pique your keen sense of interest.
In other news, this does spark a fairly riveting question: Why hasn’t the video been taken down yet? It’s not as if Sony would be struggling with finding such videos. If you search “Kratos vs Thor” on YouTube, the video in question appears as your first search result.
Moreover, the footage has been live on the famous social media platform for over 24 hours now. This does raise some eyebrows as to the intentions of the developers here.
Relatively recently, former God of War director Cory Barlog has expressed his concern over the emerging God of War Ragnarok spoilers, exhibiting the fact that the whole affair is “just so disappointing.”
The frontman’s disappointment is duly justified as everyone who deeply cares for the core God of War experience is equally upset by the escalating situation. Just let us explore all 50-70 hours of the game ourselves alone with a spoiler-free experience. Is that too much to ask for?
Do let us know what you think about the tussle that God of War Ragnarok is currently involved in down in the comments section. In the meantime, we’ll be steering clear of more popping Ragnarok spoilers.
