The Valhalla DLC is free for all God of War Ragnarok owners and is a Roguelite experience that launches on December 12. While you can jump into the new DLC whenever you want, the developers at Santa Monica Studios suggest completing the main storyline due to spoilers before trying out the DLC. Here is what you need to know about accessing and starting God of War Ragnarok Valhalla DLC.
How To Start God Of War Ragnarok Valhalla DLC
You can download the GoW Ragnarok Valhalla DLC for free from the Play Store where it will be listed as free DLC, as long as you own the main game. It is pretty straightforward; you only need a copy of the game and an internet connection. Players will see it go live at 9am PST, 12pm EST, and 5pm GMT.
You can press the options button on the God of War Ragnarok game icon and select the option to look for updates and you should get the notification that an update is available for you to download. The PS Store recommended the new DLC to me as I highlighted the game icon.
Once you have downloaded the update you can launch God of War Ragnarok and you will see the Valhalla option on the main menu right below new game and new game plus.
The new DLC lets players explore Valhalla and there is a new challenge that awaits. Players will have their skills and weapons but will not have any armor. Armor and buffs will need to be earned by progressing the levels of the new activity. The new activity also has an element of uncertainty and runs are not going to be similar to one another, making it widely replayable. This should be a familiar yet new experience for God of War players and a nice new addition to the game for people who already own it.
God of War Ragnarök: Valhalla will be an epilogue to the events of God of War Ragnarök that follows Kratos on a deeply personal and reflective journey. Set after the decisive battle against Odin and Atreus’ departure, Kratos has seen a path for himself that he never thought possible before. Brought to the mysterious shores of Valhalla accompanied only by Mimir, Kratos will enter its unknown depths to overcome trials within himself and face echoes of his past.PS Blog
