Sony revealed that God of War Ragnarök will be available as part of a new PS5 bundle in a new “next-gen immersion trailer” that was shared today to showcase some of the game’s technical features. Available beginning on November 9 alongside the release of the game, the new bundle includes a standard (disc-based) PS5 console and a digital voucher code for Santa Monica Studio’s highly anticipated sequel, which can be redeemed via PlayStation Network. The console does not feature any kind of specially themed design, nor does it include the limited edition God of War Ragnarök DualSense wireless controller that Sony introduced during September’s State of Play event.

God of War Ragnarök’s key technical features, per its official website:

  • Return to the action faster than ever; the PS5 console’s high-speed SSD won’t leave you waiting long to resurrect from death. Enjoy shortened load times from in-game checkpoints, or when fast traveling.
  • Switch between full 4K resolution at a targeted 30 frames per second, or dynamic resolution upscaled to 4K at a targeted 60fps. Bask in the beautiful worlds you travel through, brought to life by stunning art direction and arresting attention to detail. Behold enhanced reflections, lighting and shadows, as well as increased geometric detail and enhanced deformable snow.
  • Feel your journey through the Norse realms, made possible by immersive haptic feedback and adaptive trigger functionality.
  • Immerse yourself in the unique soundscapes of the Nine Realms as sounds reverberate and echo throughout the environment. Use highly accurate spatial audio to hear enemies approaching from any direction, including above and below you.

Various editions of God of War Ragnarök will be available when the game launches next month. They include a Collector’s Edition and Jötnar Edition, both of which come in a box called the Knowledge Keeper’s Shrine that contains a 16-inch replica of Mjölnir, Thor’s hammer, a SteelBook, and plenty more.
