Sony’s State of Play ended with a bang with a new God of War: Ragnarök trailer introduced alongside a special controller.
While Sony hasn’t manufactured a single special edition PS5 console, likely due to production limitations, they’ve been keen on introducing many new colors for their Dual Sense controller. The latest is a special tie-in with Ragnarok. When you have a trailer for your controller, you know it has to be sweet. I don’t really like the standard controller colorway, but this one is definitely sleek. The bear and wolf insignia on the touch pad are a nice addition without being too in your face.
You can pre-order the controller, a sentence I’d never imagined I’d say on September 27th. It will be available to buy on November 9.
If that wasn’t enough, the latest story trailer only solidified the reasoning as to why God of War: Ragnarök is the most important game for Sony’s winter slate. It looks like a natural extension to the reboot of sorts that was released in 2018. It’s not the shakeup that the 2018 title was to the franchise, but PlayStation fans are in for a treat. Santa Monica Studios is one of the countless premiere Sony studios that just doesn’t miss.
Check out the trailer, and be sure to keep an eye out on a few moves/weapons scattered throughout.
