At their recent State of Play event, Sony showcased a new God of War: Ragnarok story trailer and DualSense controller.
The new trailer, which you can watch below, shows that Odin the All-Father is now making his moves in response to Kratos and Atreus’ actions in the previous game. As such, the father and son duo must now decide, all while the former struggles to keep the latter safe.
It’s all very much steeped in Norse mythology, and even more meaningful for those who finished the previous game and figured out the twist regarding Atreus’ mother and how they all relate to the coming of Ragnarok—the Norse apocalypse.
Beyond that, the trailer’s narrator, the Norse god of war Tyr, also brings up Kratos’ violent past from the previous Greek trilogy, questioning if the latter even knows what it means to be a god.
In addition to the story trailer, Sony also revealed a new, limited edition God of War: Ragnarok DualSense wireless controller.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the new controller features a two-tone, blue on icy-white design that Sony says is inspired by the Norse realm of Midgard. To add to this, the controller has been further embellished with a bear and wolf insignia that Sony says represents Kratos and Atreus.
Sadly, the new controller will not be based on the similarly two-toned DualSense Edge controller. So those hoping for the latter’s advanced features may be disappointed. Sony has yet to reveal any release date or pricing for the DualSense Edge. (Read: Sony reveals customizable DualSense Edge PlayStation 5 controller)
The limited edition God of War: Ragnarok DualSense controller, on the other hand, will be available for purchase on November 9. Meanwhile, those looking to secure one can pre-order theirs starting on September 27.
God of War: Ragnarok is set to arrive on PlayStation 5, as well as PlayStation 4, on November 9.
