God of War Ragnarok Reveals New Details About Its Combat System

This valuable information was brought to us by our colleagues at Game Informer. Indeed, God of War Ragnarok is the star of their latest issue, with a large file returning to several points of the game, including the modification of certain mechanics related to weapons. To celebrate this exclusive “cover”, a new video on the software has been released and we find in particular a little sequence of new gameplay.

The Leviathan shield and ax get a new makeover

This valuable information was brought to us by our colleagues at Game Informer. Indeed, God of War Ragnarok is the star of their latest issue, with a large file returning to several points of the game, including the modification of certain mechanics related to weapons. To celebrate this exclusive “cover”, a new video on the software has been released and we find in particular a little sequence of new gameplay.

The journalist Jason Guisao therefore had the opportunity to speak with the director Eric Williams and some designers of the title. Among others, we learn more about one of the new areas to visit, the kingdom of the dwarves, and about future accessibility features. However, this is not what caught the most attention of readers, but rather the change in the combat system.

The lead combat designers Mihir Sheth and Denny Yeh thus delivered to our man on the novelties to come for the confrontations. Do not panic, the basics are always present, that is to say the Leviathan axe, the Blades of Chaos and the shield of Kratos. However, the triangle key will undergo a small touch-up:

In the previous game, if you pressed Triangle, you recalled the axe. But if you already had the ax, nothing happened. If you had the Blades of Chaos and pressed Triangle, you would just go back to the Axe. We looked at this concept and asked ourselves, “What if you could do something a little different with that button – a whole new suite of moves”.

Triangle will therefore be used to infuse his equipment with, at your choice, ice or fire. The developers call these “Weapon Signature Abilities”. The, or should we say the shields are not left out, since they have also been reworked. Thus, there are two quite distinct types, the Dauntless Shieldfor devastating counters if you parry at the last moment, and the Stonewall Shieldideal for skirmishes against tanks.

As a reminder, God of War Ragnarök will be released on November 9 on PS4 and PS5.
