Sony and Santa Monica Studio have revealed that the first major piece of DLC for God of War: Ragnarok will actually be a free one that will add an entirely new mode. Titled Valhalla, the DLC will launch on December 12th and serve as an epilogue to the events of God of War: Ragnarok. Set after the decisive battle, Kratos has seen a path for himself that he never thought possible before. Brought to the mysterious shores of Valhalla accompanied only by Mimir, Kratos will enter its unknown depths to overcome trials within himself and face echoes of his past. Each attempt in Valhalla will encourage players to master different aspects of Kratos’ arsenal as they face new combinations of enemies and some surprises along the way.
In Valhalla, defeat in combat is not the end of a warrior’s spirit. If Kratos falls, he will reawaken outside the doors ready for the next try. During each attempt, players will learn and adapt to the challenges Valhalla has to offer. The more you overcome, the more resources players will gain that can be put towards permanent upgrades that affect both Kratos and even Valhalla itself. Accumulating rewards and knowledge during consecutive attempts will help players get ever closer to discovering the mysteries that await Kratos within.
