The upcoming sequel to 2018’s God of War, God of War Ragnarok, has been said to have received its first rating.
Some days ago we already covered that the game’s release date might have been leaked via the PlayStation Store database, and we now might have the first official age rating for Sony’s title.
As posted on Twitter by the official account for the age classification of electronic games at the General Authority for Audio-Visual Media in Saudi Arabia, God of War Ragnarok has just been rated appropriate for ages 18 and up.

Now while this rating doesn’t confirm a release date in any way, it does suggest that the game isn’t that far out. In general, games receive age ratings close to a release. If true, ratings from other authorities and rating boards are likely to follow soon.
As said, Ragnarok is the sequel to 2018's soft reboot of the franchise. The game is set to take place approximately three years after the God of War. Atreus, Kratos’ grown-up son will have to face the meaning of his true identity, unveiled by the ending of 2018's God of War. He and his father Kratos will venture through all of the Nine Realms while fending off enraged powerful Norse deities like Thor and Freya, on the backdrop of the prophesied end of days.
God of War Ragnarok will be released for both PS5 and PS4. You can watch the game’s first official gameplay trailer down below.
