The Game Awards has revealed that Kratos and company’s journey isn’t quite finished, as a new DLC expansion called God of War: Ragnarok – Valhalla, which blends classic God of War action with classic roguelike titles, is coming next week. If that sounds like your kind of thing, you’ll be able to dive into this new rougelike DLC on December 12. To make things sweeter, it’s also completely free for exsiting owners.
While the trailer didn’t give us much information to go off, other than a bunch of gameplay and the fact we appear to be playing Kratos only, it does appear as though new story details will be included in the expansion. We see Kratos approaching a mysterious shrine, opening the door, and is seemingly teleported to an unknown land full of bad guys to murder. Mimir is also in tow, because we know he doesn’t go anywhere with his lovable head.

Getting from A to B has never been this pretty, but it’s also never been this mindless.
It doesn’t appear as though there are any new combat mechanics, but it will be another opportunity to use the game’s existing weapons to show off your combat skills again. The trailer also doesn’t give us any hints about where Atreus is or whether he’ll rock up in this DLC at all. It was all very vague, but at least we don’t have to wait very long to dive in and see what it’s all about.
With this news, it seems as though PlayStation is going all in on the roguelike modes. Not only did PlayStation publish Returnal, a game which is basically a massive roguelike in itself, but The Last of us Part 2 Remastered is also launching with a roguelike mode which lets you play as certain characters from the game. Now we just need that Ratchet and Clank roguelike mode and the set is complete.
The God of War: Ragnarok – Valhalla DLC wasn’t the only exciting reveal we saw during The Game Awards this year. We also got a new trailer for Hellblade 2 – even if we’re still waiting for a release date – and a new trailer for Atlus’ new upcoming title Metaphor: ReFantazio, which showed off new story and gameplay details, as well as the reveal that the game will be launching in Fall 2024.
Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games also announced that it’s working on a single-player Dead by Daylight experience called The Casting Of Frank Stone.
