It isn’t a shocker when people mention God of War Ragnarok as their most anticipated game. The sequel to 2018’s action-adventure game is one of the major releases for the PlayStation console. After initial silence, we finally know when the game is arriving on November 9th.
With the game waiting for the November 9th release, Santa Monica Studios has slowly started revealing info. In a recent live-voiced Q&A session on the official Discord, the game director of God of War Ragnarok, Eric Williams, confirmed that the title has various difficulty settings (via Mp1st).
Williams said that the game ships with a total of five difficulty settings, which are:
- Give Me Balance – This will give a balanced experience similar to God of War 2018.
- Give Me Story – Similar to “Give Me Story’ in the last game.
- Give Me Grace – Something in between Story and Balance.
- Give Me No Mercy – Similar to the Give Me a Challenge setting from GOW 2018
- Give Me God of War – The hardest difficulty setting in the game.
Williams said that for the game, the team adjusted the hardest difficulty. Players who start the game on Give Me God of war difficulty will now get to change it mid-game. Players can switch difficulty whenever they feel like mid-game.
Furthermore, for the hardest difficulty, the studio ensured that the challenge ramped up over time so that the early game is not brutal compared to 2018 God of War’s hardest difficulty.
God of War Ragnarok will continue the story of Kratos and Atreus from the previous title. The title planned for a 2021 release. Unfortunately, Sony delayed it until this year. The game will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on November 9, 2022.
