Given the tremendous success of its predecessor, it would be an understatement to say that expectations for God of War: Ragnarok were somewhat high. Since the game was announced at Sony’s PS5 Showcase event in late 2020, the team at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio has been under a lot of pressure to make a worthy sequel to the wildly successful 2018 game. Given the overall quality of the final product, it’s possible that few would have guessed it.
God of War: Ragnarok not only lives up to the hype, but for many, it even exceeds expectations. At the time of writing, it is the highest-rated first-party PlayStation 5 game and a must-play for both fans of the long-running series and those who enjoy story-driven games. Even those who are already familiar with the series may require some assistance with the game’s main story, as well as its numerous side quests and collectibles.

God of War Ragnarok Guide to the Main Story

The Top Gear in God of War: Ragnarok
