A new trial is available for PS Plus Premium members. The few who haven't had a chance to play through Kratos' newest romp will finally get to do so - for free.
God of War: Ragnarok is the latest free trial on PS Plus Premium and it'll be available for up to three hours of playtime. You'll be able to carry over your progress if you decide to buy the game.
The God of War sequel now joins other four other first-party PlayStation exclusives to get a free trial on the most expensive PS Plus tier, with the other ones being The Last of Us Part 1 and Horizon Forbidden West.

The free trial is just part of the perks of upgrading to the Premium tier over the Essential and Extra tiers. Another bonus is a back catalog of games from the original PlayStation to the PlayStation 3. Because most older titles are only available to play via cloud streaming, which is still not accessible in certain territories, Sony has launched a Deluxe tier for those who want something more than what the Extra tier has to offer.
Either way, these time-limited free trials haven't exactly been big needle movers for the Premium and Deluxe tiers. Adding a handful of award-winning titles could help change that, especially if Sony can time the trials closer to the game's launch. All that's arguably missing now is for Sony to throw in a discount for all the games with free trials.
As for God of War: Ragnarok, don't expect to see an expansion anytime soon. The game's director, Eric Williams, clarified in the past that Santa Monica Studio is highly unlikely to revisit Kratos' tale until a significant amount of time has passed. It's highly likely that Santa Monica Studio will work on a different game for the PS5 first before circling back to God of War: Ragnarok for the PlayStation 6 sometime later this decade.
Fingers crossed, Konami was listening to Williams' pleas, and it's working with Sony's marquee studio on a new Castlevania game.
In the meantime, the only God of War content fans can look forward to is the live-action series by Amazon. The company insists that the still-untitled show will stay true to the source material.
