Hot on the heels of the last major update, Santa Monica Studio has released a new patch for God of War Ragnarok. Aimed at issues introduced alongside New Game Plus and other extra content, this seems like a small but important update if you're going through Kratos' journey once again.

The patch (version 4.01) fixes a bunch of bugs in NG+, like certain armour sets not upgrading past level 9, and quest rewards not being granted. It also fixes a rare game crash when loading saves. Additionally, issues with certain Trophies not unlocking have been resolved.

Here are the full patch notes:


  • Fixed an issue where Darkdale Waist Guard or Risen Snow Armor could not be upgraded past Level 9 in NG+.


  • Fixed an issue where certain quest resources were not granted upon completion in NG+ (Lindwyrm Scales, Sovereign Coals, Essence of Hel). These resources will be granted retroactively to players who should have received them.


  • Fixed a rare case where the application would crash when loading certain save files.


  • Fixed an issue where the "Ready for Commitment" trophy would not unlock when upgrading NG+ armor to Level 9 or above.
  • Fixed an issue where the "Dragon Slayer" trophy could not be earned during NG+ if the player did not craft the Dragon Scale armor during first playthrough on base game.
  • Fixed an issue where the "Phalanx" trophy could not be earned if the player crafted a Level 9+ shield prior to crafting every other type of shield.

If you receive the armor from the Lost Items Chest in the shop, you will need to restart or reload your game to get the trophy.

Please note that these trophies will be granted retroactively to players who fulfilled the prerequisites between the time the NG+ patch (v. 04.00) and this patch were implemented.


  • Fixed a rare case where the application would crash in the UI.
