It appears that time hasn't made Kratos any less serious (nor badass).
In what's easily the most extensive look we've gotten of God of War: Ragnarok yet, Kratos taunts death, saying "death can have me, when it earns me," while also taking on Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, just as the trailer comes to a close.

It's been fun getting on the roller coaster of a ride that is God of War: Ragnarok. Just a little over a year ago, Santa Monica Studio and Sony refused to name God of War: Ragnarok as it delayed the sequel's release date by a year. Then, as Sony finally peeled back the mystery layers of the game at last year's September State of Play event, fans got antsy about the relative lack of info, specifically, a proper release date.
Thankfully, Sony caved in and we finally know that the game is coming out on November 9.
With less than two months to go until then, Sony is giving Ragnarok its last marketing push and the story trailer delivers.
The latest trailer for Ragnarok is packed full of action as the father-and-son duo of the year square off with everything from harpies to a giant jellyfish-looking creature and even Thor. It also comes with its fair share of drama as the voice-over calls out Kratos for being a false god who doesn't know the joys of someone worshipping them. We're also given a glimpse of Tyr, the Norse God of War, as well as the two wolves, Skoll and Hati. Although the trailer doesn't specifically name the two, it is implied that these are the Bringers of Day and Night. It's worth remembering that you'll find stories of these two wolves and how Odin kept them in Asgard so that he can control Ragnarok. Seeing as the two are already out of the cage, it's likely that Atreus and Kratos will throw a monkey wrench in Odin's plans.
God of War: Ragnarok was already set to contend with Elden Ring for this year's Game of the Year award and this trailer all but serves to reinforce that.
The only question now is whether Ragnarok can live up to the hype or not.
As for the God of War franchise, Ragnarok isn't going to be the last game in the series. It's the final chapter in the Norse saga, and while producer Cory Balrog revealed that we third game isn't on the horizon, it all just means that we're in for another reboot of God of War later this decade.
