God of War Ragnarok: problems at Sony, possible leaks on the way

God of War Ragnarok

After The Last of Us Part 1, Sony may soon find itself facing another information leak for God of War Ragnarok. This is revealed by insider Nick Baker, founder of Xbox Era, who may also have found the reason why one of the most anticipated and most important games in the PS5 line-up was leaked so soon.

Let's go in order: according to Baker's words, there is a reason that the first videos and screenshots of The Last of Us Part 1 were released on the Internet a little in advance of the official schedule. The reason behind the leak would indicate a security problem in Sony, with the Japanese giant that may not have total control over all copies distributed internally and beyond. The first suspicions, at least in our opinion, could fall on who is in charge of carrying out quality checks on the game: after the pandemic (but even before, in reality, albeit to a lesser extent), many QA workers work from home, with devkits provided directly by publishers or console makers. Without proper internal control, it is really difficult to keep track of who works from home.| ); }
Clearly we do not know if Sony is really facing security problems. However, this option remains very plausible, considering the large amount of material made available to players well in advance. If the episode is repeated, it is very likely that the Japanese giant will try to limit the damage and in the future, perhaps, change something at the company level.

PlayStation Confirms Major God of War Ragnarok Upgrade

PlayStation has confirmed that God of War Ragnarok gives PS4 and PS5</a> players exactly what they wanted out of the first game. When Santa Monica Studio and PlayStation released 2018's God of War reboot it earned universal acclaim, eventually settling on a 94 on Metacritic and beating Red Dead Redemption 2 at The Game Awards for GOTY. So far, the sequel looks largely more of the same, which should suffice for most PlayStation fans considering how good the first game is. That said, the sequel is bigger in size and scope. Not only have we heard that through the grapevine, but a new story description confirms as much. 

In this new story description --- which you read below -- it's noted that Kratos and Atreus will travel all nine realms over the course of the game, which is more than the first game. As you may remember, the first game only had six relams, with Asgard, Vanaheim, and Svartalfheim missing.

'Embark on a mythic journey for answers and allies as Kratos and Atreus prepare for Ragnarök,' says the description in question. 'From Santa Monica Studio comes the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018). Fimbulwinter is well underway. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.'

Now, this wouldn't be the first time for a story description to have incorrect or misleading information, as they are usually written by PR who can be out of the loop. However, it's not common. And it also just makes sense to add the remaining relams. 

God of War Raganrok is set to release worldwide on November 9 via the PS4 and PS5. For more coverage on the highly-anticipated and long-awaited sequel -- including not just the latest news on the game, but the latest rumors, leaks, and speculation -- click here.
