All You Need To Know about God of War Ragnarok: Editions, DLC, and more

The long-awaited followup to Sony Santa Monica’s massive open-world norse adventure is almost here.

Atreus and his dad are ready to embark on another adventure and we’re all just along for the ride.

With launch looming near, here are all the main details you need to make your choice on how and where to play!


God of War Ragnarok is coming to PS4 and PS5.

Release Date

God of War Ragnarok launches November 9, 2022

Is this a followup to the 2018 God of War

While this is the ninth installment in the God of War franchise, it’s a direct sequel to Cory Barlog’s God of War. Three years have passed in-game since Kratos and Atreus’ original quest.

So is this in the Norse Saga?

Yes, it’s actually the finale!

Is Ragnarok actually going to happen?

Yes, the game sets up the sequence of events that lead up to it!

Will there be DLC?

Some. While there doesn’t seem to be a direct season pass or post-launch content announced, there are a host of pre-order pieces which we’ve broken down in this post.

If I own Ragnarok on PS4, can I play on PS5?

You can, but there is a cost attached to it. Unlike previous PlayStation titles, there’s no automatic free upgrade to the best version when switching between consoles. From now onwards, there will be an option to upgrade from disc or digital versions of the PS4 version of God of War Ragnarok to PS5 at the cost of £10/$10.


Launch Edition

The standard, launch edition comes with either the PS4 or PS5 versions of the game and some pre-order content with Risen Snow Armor for Kratos (properties TBD) and a Risen Snow Tunic for Atreus which is cosmetic.

Digital Deluxe Edition

There’s a lot more to find in the next edition up with more armor and attire for our heroes as well as weapons, digital bonuses and more. Here’s the full breakdown.

  • Kratos Darkdale Armor
  • Atreus Darkdale Attire (cosmetic)
  • Darkdale Blades Handles for the Blades of Chaos
  • Darkdale Axe Grip for the Leviathan Axe
  • Official God of War Ragnarök Digital Soundtrack
  • Dark Horse Digital Mini Artbook
  • Avatar Set
  • PlayStation 4 Theme

Collector’s Edition

These are probably going to be hard to find now, but the Collector’s Edition is still a beauty. It contains all the above digital items, as well as a host of physical ones too. Here’s the breakdown.

  • Digital Code for both PS4 and PS5 versions of God of War Ragnarok
  • A Steelbook Display Case
  • 2” Vanir Twins Carvings
  • Dwarven Dice Set
  • 16” Mjölnir Replica
