Installing release updates for current video games is not uncommon and often goes unnoticed because the fixes are discreet. In the case of God of War Ragnarok, some issues may frustrate players, so it’s good to download the patch before experiencing the adventure.
There are fixes in several categories, such as dialogues, accessibility options, audio mixing, and mainly bugs that can affect the progress of story and side missions, in addition to fixing the problem of loot from dead enemies falling in inaccessible places.
God of War Ragnarok is the sequel to the 2018 game and takes place three years after its conclusion. Kratos and Atreus must fight to stop Ragnarok, the end of the world in Norse mythology, as Asgard prepares for war. Previously, Santa Monica Studio said that the game will be the conclusion of the Norse saga of Kratos, but gave no details about the future.
