Tips to start well in God of War Ragnarok and enjoy the journey

Available for PS4 and PS5, God of War Ragnarök is an adventure of several dozens of very affordable hours, but still requires you to deal with RPG elements that will disturb your progress. In this guide, we will address everything you need to know before diving into the adventure.

Choose difficulty and accessibility options

First step before jumping to the bottom of the well, the traditional option in the options menu and all the parameters available for you to customize your sessions. Like The Last of Us 2 and Horizon Forbidden West, this new Sony production does the work completely on the accessibility side, with a variety of dozens of options, which include sound clues to automatic object collection.

In addition, the game will ask you to choose from 5 difficulties of difficulty. If you have already zeroed God of War (2018) and like the fights, we recommend that you go straight to the difficulty. Anyway, except in God’s difficulty of war, it is possible to change the way along the way.

It is possible to lower the difficulty God of War after starting the game, but if you do, you cannot select it again. It will only be available again by starting a new game!

General Progress

The structure of the game is almost identical to that of the previous episode, but you will not have a large central hub like Lake of nine . Instead, Santa Monica’s teams have decided to opt for 9 worlds, some of which contain large open spaces, most often dedicated to secondary missions.

Moreover, the main picture is linear with many areas to explore, interspersed with environmental puzzles that will involve all the resources of our two heroes. If you have chosen one of the highest difficulty levels, you will have to go through equipment improvement sessions if you want to access everything with tranquility.

gameplay and battles

The camera follows behind the shoulder, as well as in Go 2018, and Rates continues with the Leviathan ax and the chaos blades in relation to most fights, will be a matter of paying attention to the colored arrows around the hero: in yellow the enemy It’s not far away, in red he launches an attack that will hit him if you do nothing.

The shield can trim all attacks, including those with yellow circles, but you will need to dodge those with red circles. The game includes a new type of blue circle that requires pressing L1 twice to disable it.

Another remarkable difference: arenas are now full of elements with which interacting and platforms to make deadly jump attacks, it will obviously need to think about exploring all this. ????????

The power of the elements

If the elemental afflictions already existed in 2018, this time they are much more important. Each rates weapon can be loaded with its element to increase the penalty bar of enemies at high speed.

Holding triangle with the Leviathan ax or playing on the same key with the chaos blades, you will have access to everything a new range of movements to improve on skill trees. At the higher levels of the higher, the status damage is essential for survival , the sooner you get used to it, the better.


Rates Equipment

We found the set of sets already available in the first, but this time new elements are emerging in rates equipment. Starting with the amulet to improve that can contain up to 9 slots and also provide set bonuses.

The number of different sets and equipment is much more limited than the game allows you to imagine at first glance, which will lead you to improve them at regular intervals. The feature for creation is defined and will not be a matter of starting this or that type of monster, but explore the right places or overcome specific heads.

Obviously, we will have the opportunity to get into more detail about the best equipment in the game, as each great kingdom has its own unique set to find. But this is the subject for future guides.

The importance of secondary missions

Even if the story has enough to keep it for almost 30 hours, we recommend that you do all the secondary missions offered. They allow you to learn more about the game world and participate in unique fights against more powerful bosses than average.

If you intend to properly make better setting, making favors is a good opportunity to collect equipment and resources. Some legendary chests, Odin crows etc can only be found in secondary missions.

Return and search for 100%

Some progress items will only be distributed by properly progressing on the main mission, which means that if you want to complete the game by 100%, you will necessarily have to go back to all your kingdoms to finish recovering the corner chests and those collectibles you had to leave out the first time.

Note that backtrack on Ragnarök is very well managed, with new enemies and paths appearing as you explore.
However, to finish most kingdoms completely, you will need to wait for the last part of the game.

Do not neglect Atreus

The boring will have his word many times during his journey, so it would be advisable to neglect Atreus’s progress.
His Sonic Arrows are of crucial importance against the fastest enemies, and later, Runic invocations are important.

Therefore, study the skills well to know what to upload on your journey partner.
Fortunately, the XP’s received by Rates and Atreus are separated.
Thus, you will not have to choose who to spend the experience points.
