Cory Barlog and Eric Williams (new director of God of War) confirmed that in Ragnarok we will see weapons and mechanics from the previous installment to God of War (2018).
God of War Ragnarok is one of the most anticipated games of 2022, having wowed us all with its spectacular PlayStation Showcase trailer. The long-awaited sequel to God of War (2018) is coming to PS5 and PS4 sometime next year.
In a comprehensive interview by Captain Cuba with Cory Barlog and Eric Williams (current director of the game), those responsible for Ragnarok talked about the new playable mechanics and other details of the updated combat system, which will be different from those seen in God. of wars. ( 2018 ).
Perhaps the most accusatory of the trailer shown is that it all looks very much like what was seen in the 2018 reboot, but it won’t be that way. God of War Ragnarok will bring back some discarded elements from the previous title, and will update outdated aspects.
That was for two or three months, and almost all of us agreed we wanted to bring back old weapons and stuff from the end of God of War (2018),” explained Barlog.
Cory Barlog explains that he ended up exhausted and devastated after the development of the previous game, which is why they decided to take a break. It took me five years to develop a PS4 game, and I don’t want the same to happen with the future God of War 3 in a Nordic setting.
Both Barlog and Williams commented that there’s a lot left of God of War (2018), like mechanics and combos from the classic trilogy, as well as spinoffs like Ascension or Chains of Olympus. Of course, this also refers to weapons.
“There was a lot of outdated stuff from God of War (2018), so we decided to flip the ship and bring back weapons, mechanics, and details that we didn’t include back then,” said Eric Williams.
We don’t know what weapons or mechanics the two creatives are referring to, but everything suggests that in God of War Ragnarok there will be a nod to PS2, PS3 or PSP games. It’s related to the Minotaur or Spartan helmet seen in 10 details you may not have known about in the trailer.
God of War Ragnarok will arrive on PS5 and PS4 sometime in 2022, as one of the great PlayStation exclusives along with Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon II Forbidden West. Kratos and Atreus prepare to close the circle.
