God of War Ragnarok, the analysis of the trailer of the State of Play

God of War Ragnarok

It was talked about without much conviction, and instead in the end the rumors turned out to be true: God of War Ragnarok was shown again during the last State of Play with a trailer dedicated to the history of the game, its characters and its fascinating settings .

A further look at the long-awaited action adventure developed by Santa Monica Studio, so far presented to the public in a surprisingly savory way, especially considering that the release on PS5 and PS4 is now just around the corner: just a few weeks away until November 9, when we can get our hands on Kratos and Atreus' new mission.

So what exactly did we see? Here's our analysis of the God of War Ragnarok State of Play trailer.

The trailer

God of War Ragnarok, Kratos and Tyr "We all have secrets," Atreus tells the start of the video. "Sometimes it's the only way to protect those we love," he continues, as his father Kratos is seen literally laying down his weapons: first the iconic Blades of Chaos, then the Leviathan's ax. In the next scene, the former god of war cuts the rope that imprisons Tyr, his counterpart in Norse mythology, who will help him carry out a new mission. Which, exactly?

There is obviously some distrust: "I know who you are, killer of the gods," says Tyr. "What do you want from me? Is a god of war what you seek?" The following sequences show Kratos fighting an enemy and Tyr dragging his corpse: there will be interactions between the characters and the new travel companion will prove to be fundamental in finding the right path. Towards where? Even this question, for the moment, has no answer.

"You don't really want war, do you, Kratos?" we hear Mimir say. "All that blood on your hands and your boyfriend's?" At this point the images linger on the relationship with Atreus, who after the God of War finale has obviously become more complex: the boy does not know what his true nature is and what he is really destined for. He hides something from his father, but tells him that he must trust him.

The bond between the two protagonists has changed again, it seems, and while Kratos expresses his fears about safety in no uncertain terms of the son, the latter is somehow convinced that he knows how to move and that in this way he can protect his father. But does the Phantom of Sparta really need someone to protect him?

God of War Ragnarok, Kratos and Atreus facing each other Maybe yes, judging by the subsequent fight sequences, in which Kratos is thrown in the air with violence from the Valkyries to then face numerous other enemies: a gigantic quadrupedal monster, soldiers of various kinds, a knight armed with a long sword, a monstrous alligator (with the help of Atreus) and finally a creature composed solely of magma incandescent.

During these clashes, Odin's voice is heard saying: "What can you know about divinity? Has it ever happened to you that someone has ever worshiped you? Or ever addressed his prayers? Imagine that kind of love? No! You don't care about anyone but yourself. Apart from the monster that kills for no reason. "

God of War Ragnarok, Kratos In God of War Ragnarok there will be space in short for the introspection of the protagonist, me ntre the movie continues and shows a daring escape, a frantic ride aboard a sled on the snow, Kratos and Atreus in the grip of ocean currents and finally the calm of a sequence in which the boy shoots an arrow towards the sun and opens one " gash "in the day that instantly makes night fall. The huge wolf next to him is not there by chance.

At this point we see a rundown of the game's wonderful scenarios, culminating in the most anticipated clash: Kratos and Thor throwing themselves against their respective magical weapons. "Fate binds you if you allow it. Do what is necessary, not because it is written: we will create our own destiny." And the trailer for God of War Ragnarok closes in the best possible way.


God of War Ragnarok, the clash between Kratos and Thor The formula of the new chapter of the Santa Monica series Studio resumes what was seen in 2018, with an exciting mix of cinematic storytelling, exploratory phases and fights that will be enriched with new characters of great depth, both as regards the possible allies of Kratos and Atreus, and as regards their opponents. br>
The trailer's job was to give us a taste of Ragnarok's history, and the developers who prepared it definitely knew their stuff. After the conclusion of God of War, this was exactly the scenario we expected, with the relationship between father and son taking a further step in the direction of maturity and awareness.

God of War Ragnarok, Kratos and Atreus look at each other's backs The dubbing in Italian contributes in an important way to the involvement and the atmosphere, as well as the undoubtedly improved graphics as regards characters and settings; after which it is clear that a structural and mechanical verification will be needed in order to understand how much and if the gaming experience has changed compared to four years ago. Let's imagine that the authors started from that ending to further enrich the gameplay, see also the simultaneous presence of the Leviathan and the Blades of Chaos, but the most relevant news have not yet been revealed.

In reality, considering the extraordinary quality of the product, even a simple "more of the same" would be just fine. However, we are sure that Santa Monica Studio will not be satisfied with carrying out the proverbial homework and indeed will try to amaze us again and again, putting on the plate new elements capable of giving this new chapter its own precise personality. And we can't wait to find out.
