God of War Ragnarok is nigh!

At this point, fans of the series will know what to expect. Especially for those that finished the fantastic God of War (2018) on PS4 and PC. That being said, it’s also nice to get a little added insight into what the story of Ragnarok will entail.

Thankfully, the US governing rating organisation has released an updated ESRB summary for God of War Ragnarok. The ESRB synopsis reads:

This is an action-adventure game in which players help Kratos and his son on a dangerous quest. Players explore various realms and engage in frenetic hand-to-hand combat against human-like raiders and fantastical creatures. Players use axes and chained blades to battle enemies, often resulting in large blood-splatter effects and dismemberment.

Of course, gore will be plenty in God of War Ragnarok offering dismemberment for our gorefest pleasures to feast upon. Oh, the game also features the words “f**k” and “sh*t”. Shocking, we know.

Furthermore, the God of War Ragnarok ESRB synopsis continued:

Players can perform finishing attacks that depict close-up impalement via bladed and handheld weapons; repeated axe strikes to a creature’s neck results in decapitation.
