God of War Ragnarök is getting a free DLC this month. During The Game Awards, mere moments after Kratos’ voice actor Christopher Judge made his triumphant (but far less winded) return to the stage, Sony Santa Monica debuted new DLC for 2018’s Game of the Year — God of War Ragnarök Valhalla.
God of War Ragnarök Valhalla is free DLC launching on the PS5 on December 12th. The DLC is set after the final battle of God of War Ragnarök and will feature Big Daddy Kratos and his BBF (that’s bodyless best friend) Mimir as they take on dungeons filled with monsters. The game will feature roguelike elements, where, upon death Kratos will reawaken outside the gates of Vahalla to try to defeat its challenges yet again.
“During each attempt, you will learn and adapt to the challenges Valhalla has to offer,” Sony shared on its blog. “The more you overcome, the more resources you’ll gain that can be put towards permanent upgrades that affect both Kratos and even Valhalla itself.”
Death shouldn’t be that daunting to Kratos, considering the man has died, gone to hell, and broke out again a couple of times now.
Game Awards host Geoff Keighley said after the announcement that the free DLC was a gift to the community from the God of War developers and because it’s stealth-dropping a few days before Christmas, it’ll make for one hell of a gift.
