How to Pre-Order God of War Ragnarok


Are you ready for Ragnarok? After five years, lots of delays and tons of speculation about whether or not we’ll get the game in 2022, God of War Ragnarok has finally gotten a firm release date of November 9, 2022. We’re all eager to join Kratos and Atreus again for their next adventure that will delve even deeper into the realm of Norse gods, monsters and myth. Based on how well received the first reboot in 2018, there are plenty of people who are ready to jump into this game on day one without hesitation.

Although it’s not likely God of War Ragnarok won’t be available to everyone who wants it, fans who really want to show their love for the series and show off some exclusive items will make sure to pre-order one of the game’s many editions. This is arguably the biggest title launch of 2022, and as such there are a number of editions, ranging in price and content, physical and digital, that will be picking up the most devoted fans as they become available. Here are all editions of God of War Ragnarok and how to pre-order them.

Where can I pre-order God of War: Ragnarok?

God of War Ragnarok is a PlayStation exclusive, with some editions sold directly through them, while regular editions can be found at all of your standard retail stores. Pre-orders will be available on July 15 at 10 a.m. ET. Pricing has not yet been set for these editions, but starting July 15, we’ll be updating them to let you know how much to put down.

God of War: Ragnarok Launch Edition

The Launch Edition is essentially exactly what they call a base copy of the game you pre-order, on PlayStation 4 or PS5. However, you will still get two bonus items for this:

  • Kratos Risen Snow Armor
  • Atreus Risen Snow Tunic

God of War Ragnarok Standard Edition

The Standard Edition is the same, except it doesn’t include the additional bonus armor sets from the Launch Edition. Again, you have the choice between the PS4 and PS5 versions here, but PS4 buyers can upgrade to the PS5 version for $10.

God of War Ragnarok Digital Deluxe Edition

With the Digital Deluxe Edition, things start to get exciting for anyone who wants more than just the game. Please note that the included armor and upgrades are not available at the start of the game, but will be unlocked based on the story progress to prevent players from being overpowered early. This is all you get with this edition:

  • Either the PS4 or PS5 version of God of War Ragnarok
  • Kratos Darkdale Armor
  • Atreus Darkdale Clothing
  • Darkdale Blades Grips for the Blades of Chaos
  • Darkdale Ax Grip for the Leviathan Axe
  • Officially God of War Ragnarok digital soundtrack
  • Dark Horse digital mini art book
  • Avatar set
  • A God of War Ragnarok theme for PS4

God of War Ragnarok Collector’s Edition

One step away from the top, the Collector’s Edition is still no joke. This edition is packed with real goodies to show off and display. Here’s everything included:

  • All digital items from the Digital Deluxe Edition
  • Printed voucher code for God of War Ragnarok on PS4 and PS5
  • A steelbook display case (no physical game disc included) with art of a Bear and Wolf

If you consider yourself a true fan and are willing to shell out some extra cash, nothing but the Jotnar Edition will do.

This is what this treasure trove contains:

  • All digital items from the Digital Deluxe Edition
  • A printed voucher code for God of War Ragnarok on PS4 and PS5
  • The Knowledge Keeper’s Shrine Box
  • 7-inch vinyl record with two songs by composer Bear McCreary
