God of War Ragnarok will be coming out at midnight today and those who have pre-ordered the game digitally will be able to jump right and experience the conclusion to the Norse saga of the franchise. The highly-anticipated follow-up to God of War (2018) is one of the year’s biggest game launches and judging from the reviews ahead of its launch, this one is going to be a strong contender for this year’s Game of the Year.
The game is currently available for pre-order digitally from PlayStation Store for Rs 4,999 (PS5) and Rs 3,999 (PS4). Physical copies will be available with the usual retailers – Amazon, Games The Shop, Flipkart, and more. PS4 players will also be able to play the game as it is a cross-generation release, a first for the franchise.
The game boasts of several different graphics modes on the PS5, which will help players get the most out of their experience. From “Performance + HFR and VRR” to “Quality + HFR” – there is a lot for players to find in the PS5 version of the game. God of War Ragnarok will be the final entry in the series taking place in the Norse realm and it will be interesting to see where Santa Monica takes the series next.

The game features all kinds of new gameplay and combat elements, including larger combat arenas that allow Kratos to unleash the full extent of his weaponry. Using the Blades of Chaos, Kratos can now pull himself onto ledges and use it to throw objects such as rocks onto enemies.
As the name might suggest, this game has a strong sense of finality to it and it will close the chapter on the franchise’s foray into the Norse saga. Fans cannot wait to see what role Kratos and Atreus have in the “twilight of the gods” and how exactly does “Loki” fit into things. Perhaps the most highly-anticipated element of God of War Ragnarok is the massively hyped throwdown with Thor that sees the God of War go up against the God of Thunder in a battle for the ages.
