The trailer God of War: Ragnarok is here ❤️

When you have a formula that works, there's usually minimal incentive to deviate from the plan.  To use the time-honored adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

God of War didn't need to fix anything.  The video game series was already wildly successful and didn't really require any modifications to its content or presentation.

In addition to fulfilling the creator's artistic urge to refine and modernize the God of War franchise, the series could and would have been fine to churn out formula games.

However, Santa Monic Studios released a sequel/reboot of God of War in 2018, and the series got a new lease on life.

Following the stupendous success of 2018's God of War, Santa Monica Studios flagged off a sequel that will continue the adventures of Kratos with his son.

In the video above, you can get a first look at God of War: Ragnarok, further cementing the title as one of the premiere examples of top-tier storytelling in video games.
