Kratos and Atreus will be exploring all of the Nine Realms in God of War Ragnarok, but there was a lack of clarity on what they would be like in the sequel. Svartalfheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard are all mentioned but were generally overlooked in the previous game. Now, we have our first look at Svartalfheim, the land of the dwarves.
The gameplay teaser comes from GameInformer, and the minute-and-a-half-long video gives us an idea of what to expect in the dwarven home world. Brok and Sindri always talked about dwarven genius in the 2018 game, and thats what we can see in one of the closing shots.
Moment-to-moment gameplay will also involve manipulating some water-powered devices. We see geysers blocking Kratos' path in the video, but he can freeze the water to stop them from happening by his new elemental attacks. Similarly, he can free geysers from inside pressure pots to power water wheels.
The God of War Ragnaroks release date is November 9, and it will be available on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on Wednesday.
The official recap video for Ragnaroks has been released for those who want to get ready for the new game. We have also provided a handy reference on how to play the God of War games, given that the whole series has been running for 17 years.
