Additionally, PlayStation also unveiled a deep dive look into the game's Collector's Edition. The God of War Ragnarök's Collector's Edition was unboxed by Thor actor Ryan Hurst and Santa Monica Studio Art Director Rafael Grassetti. This edition of the game comes housed in a beautiful box representing the Knowledge Keeper’s Shrine and contains the following items:
- Printed voucher code for the full God of War Ragnarök game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
- A Steelbook Display Case (no game disc included) – The God of War Ragnarök Steelbook Display Case depicts renditions of the Bear and the Wolf.
- 2” Vanir Twins Carvings – In the same style as Atreus’ wooden toy carvings of the Huldra Brothers from the God of War (2018) Collector’s Edition, the God of War Ragnarök Collector’s Edition completes the set with carvings of the Vanir Twins.
- Dwarven Dice Set – This set comes with a set of dice with a quality wood-like finish in a dice bag with a symbol of Yggdrasil on the outside.
- 16” Mjölnir Replica – A highly detailed replica of Thor’s signature weapon from God of War Ragnarök.
