God of War Ragnarok’s release date has been set for November for some time now, but delays are always possible, especially in this day and age. God of War Ragnarok’s release date appears to be all but set, which is a blessing, since Santa Monica Studio today stated the game has gone gold, which denotes that a shippable version of the game has been finished.

“God of War Ragnarok has gone gold, and we are over the moon to announce it! I’d want to express my gratitude to the fans for their support during the development process on behalf of [Santa Monica Studio] and all of our collaborators. On November 9, we’ll be launching, and we can’t wait for you to play!

The tweet above lists a large number of support studios, including PlayStation Studios Creative Arts, Bluepoint Games, Valkyrie Entertainment, RedHot Studio, Super Allow, Jetpack Interactive, SuperGenius, and Original Force. It appears that getting God of War Ragnarok out the door required all hands on deck. Have you not been following God of War Ragnarok? Here is the official synopsis of the game…

“The sequel to Santa Monica Studio’s critically acclaimed God of War is now available (2018). As they get ready for the conflict that would supposedly destroy the world, Kratos and Atreus must go to each of the Nine Realms in pursuit of the answers. As Asgardian armies make ready for battle, Kratos and Atreus go far into the Nine Realms in pursuit of the truth. Along the voyage, they will encounter terrifying foes in the shape of Norse gods and monsters, acquire allies from other worlds, and explore breathtaking mythological landscapes. Kratos and Atreus are forced to decide between their family’s protection and the safety of the realms as the threat of Ragnarök intensifies.”

  • Those who break fate – Atreus seeks knowledge to help him understand the prophecy of “Loki” and what role he is to play in Ragnarök. Kratos must decide whether he will be chained by the fear of repeating his mistakes or break free of his past to be the father Atreus needs.
  • Weapons of war – The Leviathan Axe, Blades of Chaos and Guardian Shield return alongside a host of new abilities for both Kratos and Atreus. As they take on gods and monsters from across the Nine Realms, Kratos’ deadly Spartan skills will be tested like never before as he fights to protect his family.
  • Explore the realms – Journey to dangerous and stunning landscapes while facing a wide variety of enemy creatures, monsters and Norse gods as Kratos and Atreus search for answers and allies.

God of War Ragnarok launches on PS4 and PS5 on November 9.
