God of War Ragnarok fans getting Collector’s Edition with no game

God of War Ragnarok fans are getting Collector Editions without a copy of the game. Instead, they are getting two DLC leaflet codes.

When the God of War Collectors and Jotnar Editions were announced, some weren’t too happy that both editions would not ship with a physical copy of the game. This despite including a steelbook case. Instead, both editions ship with a digital copy of the game.

For the players

Now, I believe that digital games have their place. For starters, they’re easy and quick to access, rather than swapping multiple discs. They also have an added benefit to those that might be disabled.

However, I still believe that Collector Editions should come with a physical copy of the game. At the very least, offer those who pre-order the game in a timely manner the choice of having a physical or digital copy of the game when that edition arrives at launch.

No God of War Ragnarok game or steelbook!

Unfortunately, as reported by Push Square, some gamers that pre-ordered the Ragnarok Collector’s Edition aren’t even getting a digital copy of the game. 

Some have reported that when opening the steelbook case, which should contain the digital game as well as bonus DLC, they’re just getting the DLC. Furthermore, some aren’t even getting the steelbook as well as the game in either the Collector’s Edition or the Jotnar Edition!

Of course, this is an error by those that packaged the Collector’s and Jotnar Edition in the warehouse and we’re sure that Sony will issue the game that they have paid for (hopefully).

That being said, I can imagine how frustrating it must be looking forward to playing God of War Ragnarok, only to discover that you haven’t got your game after all.

In our review of God of War Ragnarok, we said it’s: “everything you loved about the previous title, but amplified. The longer story and expanded worlds give way for characters to develop in meaningful ways, making the whole game feel very much like a sequel worthy of its predecessor.
