The official PlayStation Store page for God of War: Ragnarok has been updated, and it includes what appears to be new story details on the long-awaited PlayStation exclusive.
The story description, as spotted by TheGamer, reveals that Kratos and Atreus will visit all Nine Realms as they seek out clues about a battle that could end the world. The full description follows below:
“Fimbulwinter is well underway. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. The threat of Ragnarok grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.”
There are a few further story details posted on the website, including what’s next for Atreus in his story arc and how Kratos is battling his own demons to become the father Atreus needs. The website also sheds light on the weapons and abilities that Kratos will use and reveals that Kratos and Atreus will come upon a “wide variety of enemy creatures, monsters, and Norse gods.”
Here are the additional listings, as written by Sony:
