The long-awaited PlayStation State of Play has just concluded on an incredibly high note with PlayStation and Santa Monica Studio showing off new gameplay from the hottest upcoming game of the year, God of War Ragnarok.
“Set out on an epic and unflinching journey as Kratos and Atreus struggle with holding on and letting go,” the description accompanying the trailer reads. “Witness the changing dynamic of their relationship as they prepare for war; Atreus hungers for knowledge to help him grasp the prophecy of “Loki,” as Kratos struggles to free himself from the past and be the father his son needs. All the while, the eyes of Asgard watch their every move.” The trailer depicts both Kratos and Atreus navigating numerous different locations, much of which differs from the recent footage that GameInformer has been showing as a part of their Cover Story month of coverage. We see cameos from familiar faces like Freya, Odin, and Thor.

Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.
