The Game Awards are back. A one-night-only celebration of all things gaming live from the Peacock Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Today, December 7th, the best games from the year will be recognized and a ton of game announcements will be made. With that, we have a look at God of War Ragnarok Valhalla.
The expansion seems to feature some sort of rouge-like element with a story. God of War Ragnarok Valhalla will be free DLC for God of War Ragnarok. Plus it releases next week! That is right God of War Ragnarok Valhalla will release on December 12th, 2023. When it releases it will come to both PS4 and PS5. If you have not finished God of War yet, Santa Monica Studio has confirmed the DLC can be played at any point. Although Santa Monica is not clear just how much of a story element will be part of the expansion. In the same sentence, they call the expansion a “reflective journey” while calling it an epilogue following the events from the main game. One thing is for sure, if there is more story here in Valhalla, it will be must play.
More on God of War Ragnarok Valhalla From the Press Release:
God of War Ragnarök: Valhalla will be an epilogue to the events of God of War Ragnarök that follows Kratos on a deeply personal and reflective journey.
Set after the decisive battle against Odin and Atreus’ departure, Kratos has seen a path for himself that he never thought possible before. Brought to the mysterious shores of Valhalla accompanied only by Mimir, Kratos will enter its unknown depths to overcome trials within himself and face echoes of his past.
In Valhalla, defeat in combat is not the end of a warrior’s spirit. If Kratos falls, he will reawaken outside the doors ready for the next try. During each attempt, you will learn and adapt to the challenges Valhalla has to offer. The more you overcome, the more resources you’ll gain that can be put towards permanent upgrades that affect both Kratos and even Valhalla itself.
Accumulating rewards and knowledge during your attempts will help you get ever closer to discovering the mysteries that await Kratos within.
