God of War Ragnarok, the sequel to 2018’s God of War, has been rated an 18 in South Korea.
Since it was announced, God of War Ragnarok has been one of the most anticipated titles coming to PlayStation 5.
God of War 4, or simply God of War, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim. It also recently saw a release on PC earlier this year, with Sony revealing that it sold extremely well.
And despite the developers stating that God of War Ragnarok will release in 2022, players have been concerned that it will be delayed.
Well, worried players have something to ease their nerves slightly, as the sequel was recently rated in South Korea.
South Korean Rating Board GRAC Has Rated God of War Ragnarok
The Game Rating and Administration Committee in South Korea have recently rated God of War Ragnarok, suggesting a 2022 launch is still likely.
Unsurprisingly, the GRAC has rated Ragnarok an 18 as “not available for youth”. The 2018 God of War was also rated an 18 too.
The board rated the game an 18 for the following reasons:
- Excessive profanity in conversation (Fxxx, Dxxx, etc.) appears throughout the game
- Excessive violence
- Direct drug expression
- There is a direct expression of characters drinking alcohol in pubs
When God of War was rated in South Korea, back in 2018, it was released around three months later.
While God of War Ragnarok may not be released within three months, it could release this year as promised.
Santa Monica Studio developers have been promising a 2022 window with no delays, and we’re hopeful that this remains true.
If you’re like us and love God of War, you’ll be happy to know that Sony is working on a TV adaptation of the series.
And recently, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 5 sold record numbers per minute in the United States.
