God of War Ragnarök has been one of the most-awaited games this year, and while we thought we would get something in the State of Play earlier this June, we got nothing; frankly speaking, it’s about time we did. Luckily, we finally got a glimpse of hope, and before we get into it, let’s talk about the game a bit.
God of War Ragnarök is the 9th installment to the God of War series and sequel to God of War (2018). It takes inspiration from and is loosely based on Norse Mythology. It is set in ancient Scandinavia, with our beloved protagonist Kratos and his son Atreus.
Since the game covers the ending of the Norse era, it is called Ragnarök, which means the end of days, and depicts the death of many Norse gods. This has been foretold in earlier games as Kratos killed Æsir god Baldur.
Enough about that; the game is set to release this year, but official announcements have not been given, and we now finally have a date to mark our calendars.

The Snitch is one of the recent renowned leakers on Twitter, who went viral after telling the names of many games coming in Summer Showcases, along with a recent title which has planted its roots in rumors, “Overdose”.
As he always leaks things with a lot of room for interpretation, it’s hard to catch it before it gets announced, but luckily this time, we managed to decipher his codes; the numbers in his first tweet show “11110” which in binary translates to 30.
So we now have a date to mark our calendars for, and it’s June 30th, and when people took notice of that, instead of denying it, he replied with the “order” gif, which hints at pre-orders. Finally, we can pre-order God of War Ragnarök next week and hopefully get a release date.
The speculations are that the game will be released on November 11th, but we can only wait since there is nothing to confirm that. Nonetheless, the hype has been reignited, and we can’t express how exciting this is as we have waited a long time for this game.
