God of War Ragnarok PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Sony has updated the official PlayStation Store page for God of War Ragnarok (spotted by The Gamer), revealing a plot synopsis for the eagerly awaited sequel, giving us some tasty morsels to savour as we await the title's 9th November release date.

The synopsis for the title reads, in full:

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 Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.

While we knew that Kratos and Atreus' journey would see them visit all nine realms, and that the game will be "huge", the mention of Asgardian forces has intrigued us. Could this be a new enemy type, or is it referring to the gods in general? Is there such a thing as a rank-and-file resident of Asgard, the dwelling place of the gods?

We now know the game will begin during Fimbulwinter (although that could have been surmised from the tease at the end of the first game), and that means that there will be at least some portion of the game set before the apocalyptic events of Ragnarok begin.

In other God of War Ragnarok news, it looks like the PlayStation exclusive will get the standard suite of graphical and performance options, a cool new piece of artwork was revealed, and we heard a rumour that the release date was changed at the last minute.
