God of War Ragnarök comes to PC in September

Ragnarök is nigh — that is, if you’ve got a PC capable of handling it. During its summer State of Play event, Sony announced that God of War Ragnarök is coming to PC Setptember 19th. The news was accompanied by a brand-new trailer including the info that the game is now available for pre-order.

It’s been just over a year since God of War Ragnarök released, adding another emotional beat to the story of Kratos, the god of war, and his son, Atreus. When we last left the pair in 2018’s God of War, the two had just returned from an epic journey to disperse Atreus’ mother’s ashes from the highest peak in the nine realms. In Ragnarök, Kratos and Atreus’ lives have been upended by the omens heralding the destruction of the realms, an event that is connected to Atreus’ destiny. The two go on a journey — sometimes separate, sometimes together — to figure out that destiny and to put a stop to the god Odin’s evil plans.

And there’s an interesting if unfortunate merit to that strategy, as Sony’s single-player PC ports have a reputation of being quite poor at launch. Hopefully, though, with the full might of Ragnarök behind him, the God of War will avoid such issues.
