- God of War is one of Sony’s most prized IPs, with Ragnarok being the latest in the franchise.
- The game was released on November 9, 2022, and does not have a DLC expansion of any sort.
- As per a new rumor coming from a Spanish media outlet, DLC for Ragnarok is in the works.
Gather ’round, everyone! There’s titanic news for anyone waiting in line for what’s next in the God of War saga. According to Areajugones, a prominent video game news outlet from Spain, DLC for God of War Ragnarok is in the works, and could be announced formally at The Game Awards in December 2023. We advise taking this info with a pinch of salt since there’s no official confirmation to corroborate the word.
The thing is that a few minutes ago I received a tip from sources close to Sony whose data I have been able to contrast and corroborate in such a way that, in the absence of official confirmation from the company, I can say that they come from a reliable place. And that person who I will leave anonymous so that he is not affected by all this has sent me the news that the God of War Ragnarok DLC is real and would be announced very soon,” reads the translated text from Areajugones.
Now, here’s the kicker: God of War Ragnarok director Eric Williams has previously stated that fans shouldn’t “count on DLC” for the game, saying that him and the team have put everything they had into Ragnarok. Eric, therefore, has already shut down rumors of Ragnarok DLC, so what can we sensibly expect from the rumor in question?
As the news finds its way on Reddit, many are of the opinion that Ragnarok could be followed up by a standalone game that would focus on Atreus à la Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales—the 2020 expansion of Marvel’s Spider-Man, putting emphasis on Miles’ story and taking us on another epic adventure across New York City. Before we proceed though, please note: Major Ragnarok spoilers ahead.
With the way things concluded in Ragnarok i.e. Kratos crowned as the people’s champion and Atreus fending off to tie up some loose ends, an expansion concentrating on Atreus seems to be the most logical way forward for the game’s expansion, where the deuteragonist would either explore otherwise inaccessible areas of the nine realms.
Perhaps, this supposed one-off Atreus game would offer players a tease for the next God of War game at its end, but, of course, that’s merely speculation on my part. For those who missed it, Loki (not Atreus) separates from Kratos at the time of Ragnarok’s epilogue, embarking on his own adventure to find the last surviving giants in the Norse kingdoms.
It’s worth noting that earlier this year, another industry insider going by the name The_Snitch said that Ragnarok’s DLC was 60% complete, surprising fans by confirming that some form of DLC exists in the first place. Combine that with Ben Prendergast‘s — Tyr’s in-game VA — statement, who said, “And I’ll say this, it isn’t the last you’ve seen of Tyr,” and you’ve got yourself solid arguing points here.
All of these news pieces, including the one at hand, can’t be all coming off of nothing, right? Well, we’ll have to wait a little more to see what’s truly going on. God of War Ragnarok was released on November 9, 2022, for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. In eXputer’s review, Huzaifah Durrani rated the title 4.5/5, calling it exceptional in almost every single way.
