God Of War Ragnarok DLC Rumored To Be In Development

DLC for Sony Interactive Entertainment and Santa Monica Studio’s God of War Ragnarok is in development, based on the latest rumor.

According to a leaker who previously revealed Team Ninja’s Rise of the Ronin before its official announcement, DLC for God of War Ragnarok is planned for release sometime in the year 2024. They mentioned that the downloadable content is currently in development and is around 60% complete. However, they aren’t sure whether it will end up being a standalone release or traditional DLC that will require players to own a copy of God of War Ragnarok.

Given how the DLC for Horizon Forbidden West, Burning Shores, was not standalone even though it took place in a region of the world map that was isolated from the base game, we’re inclined to believe that Sony will follow a similar strategy for God of War Ragnarok’s DLC. In other words, this is unlikely to be an Uncharted: Lost Legacy situation.

The leaker didn’t offer any information on the scope of the unannounced DLC for Ragnarok. If Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores is any indication, it may well feature a sizeable chunk of gameplay that could span 10 to 15 hours. There’s also no information on who’s the DLC will focus on. Those who have finished God of War Ragnarok will know (spoilers ahead!) that both Kratos and Atreus head off on their own individual journeys, and the DLC may focus on either of them.

Previously, speaking during an interview, the narrative director Matt Sophos and story lead Richard Gaubert at Santa Monica Studio revealed that an early version of the story script for God of War Ragnarok had Thor kill Kratos in their first combat encounter. Subsequently, a grown up Atreus would pull him back from the depths of hell 20 or so years later. Sophos stated that the early story draft was then shown to God of War Ragnarok game director, Eric Williams, who ultimately turned it down, as he felt that killing and then bringing back Kratos wouldn’t be of much emotional value.
