GameInformer has released some new gameplay footage for the upcoming video game God of War: Ragnarok Gameplay. Kratos makes his way through the Dwarven realm using his weapons to figure out the various challenges he encounters in the short video clip that gives us a sneak peek at the new area of Svartalfheim.

In contrast to previous marketing campaigns, Sony appears to be holding back the main reveal until a date that is closer to the launch date. In order to prevent giving away any spoilers, the company is only discussing the deluxe editions of the game and only providing tidbits of information regarding the gameplay. On November 9, God of War Ragnarok will be available for purchase alone on the PS4 and PS5 platforms.
God Of War: Ragnarok Gameplay
This new section of the gameplay concentrates on the traversal and exploration aspect, and much like the previous entry, it will primarily be based on walking or paddling around in a canoe. In God of War: Ragnarok, as was previously disclosed, the player will have the opportunity to investigate all nine realms of existence while collaborating with Atreus and venturing out into the world in a quest for means by which the end of the world can be postponed.
The video game God of War from 2018 included Odin as a character who restricted access to worlds that existed beyond Midgard. According to the game developer Eric Williams, these realms include Asgard, Vanaheim, and the previously known lair of the Dwarves, Svartalfheim. All of these realms are now explorable.
A significant number of enhancements have been made to Kratos’ shield, and players now have the option of selecting either a Dauntless shield or a Stonewall shield. These two shields are employed in very different strategic contexts. The Dauntless enables users to do parries or deflects at the very last second, which builds up the power to toss opponents and stun them.
The Stonewall, on the other hand, is the more brutal choice; it moves more slowly than the other options, but it inflicts significant damage on adversaries. Atreus continues to play the role of an archer and contribute to battles by calling forth phantom monsters, much like he did in the previous game.
Additionally, Santa Monica Studios has added a new ability that is linked to the triangle button. This new ability allows players to activate a weapon’s distinctive move by mashing or holding the triangle button. Kratos now has the ability to infuse his weapons with either ice or fire, causing additional damage to foes by either freezing or igniting them. When we get closer to the debut, we should get more specifics about the gameplay.
