(Pocket-lint) - Sony has confirmed that God of War Ragnarök will release on 9 November 2022, at last putting to bed rumours of any delay that would have knocked the game into 2023.
A new, very brief cinematic trailer for the game confirms the date, and features a previously unseen encounter with an enormous wolf enemy. Sony and Santa Monica Studio have also unveiled Ragnarök's collector's editions.
There is a launch edition bundling in an extra set of skins for Kratos and Atreus, as well as a digital deluxe option adding a few extras, but the glamour is reserved for two far more expensive options.
The Collector's Edition packs in a 16-inch replica of the game's version of Thor's hammer Mjolnir, along with two carved statues and a set of dwarven dice, plus a steelbook case for the game.
The even fancier Jötnar Edition offers all that, plus a cloth map, some pins, a vinyl soundtrack and a legendary ring replica, making for a huge package. The editions will all go up for pre-order on 15 July, which is when we assume we'll get pricing information. Don't expect them to come cheap, though!
