Upcoming PlayStation Exclusives 2021

Let’s start with some of the upcoming PlayStation exclusives bound to launch in 2021 that the fans are waiting for. 

1. Untitled God Of War Sequel 

After five years, Kratos finally made a comeback in 2018 with God of war. The title later went on to become the Game of the year. 

It was a completely revamped game compared to its earlier titles. The gaming mechanics, graphics were all improvised and the main POI was that the complete game was created in a single frame, meaning there was no loading between scenes. 

With the fans eagerly waiting for the next instalment, Santa Monica studios have finally announced that ‘Ragnarok is coming’.

The previous instalment ended with Kratos killing Odin’s and Freya’s son, Baldur. This time the main antagonist is rumoured to be the god of thunder Thor’, who also happens to be Baldur’s half brother. With Thor wanting to seek revenge from Kratos, it will be exciting to see how the story of ‘Ragnarok’ unfolds. 

Release Date: TBA
