Greek God Kratos has been relaunched in a new series of Sony Group Corp.’s God of War that debuted on Wednesday.

God of War Ragnarok was met with positive early reviews, suggesting it could be the catalyst the Japanese gaming giant needs heading into the end of the year without a big hit.

Critics love God of War Ragnarok. The game has a 94 on the review aggregation website Metacritic, which makes it the second-best-scoring original game of the year, just below the transcendent Elden Ring.

“This isn’t just more God Of War,” said reviewer Peter Hoskin for the Daily Mail. “It’s actually bigger, more ambitious and more imaginative than all its predecessors. It’s less a sequel, more a new summit.”

“Everything, from the character work to the combat, feels more intense,” he added.

Greek God of War Kratos has won many awards since its launch

God of War is an action-adventure game franchise created by David Jaffe at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio. It was a success and went on to win many prestigious awards over the years.

It began in 2005 on the PlayStation 2 (PS2) video game console and has become a flagship title for the PlayStation brand, consisting of nine fully-fledged games across multiple platforms, as well as a text-based game.

Based on ancient mythologies, the story follows the titular protagonist, Kratos, a Spartan warrior and later the Greek God of War, who was tricked into killing his family by his former master, the original Greek God of War Ares.

This sets off a series of events that leads to wars with the different mythological pantheons.

The Greek era of the series sees Kratos following a path of vengeance due to the machinations of the Olympian gods. The Norse era, which introduces his son, Atreus, as a secondary protagonist, depicts an older Kratos on a path of redemption, which inadvertently brings the two into conflict with the Norse gods and the pair trying to prevent Ragnarök.
