Summary

God of War Ragnarök: Valhalla is a free DLC that introduces a new mode that uses elements of the roguelite genre. Players progress through a series of trials set in procedurally generated levels, where they must choose a relic, shield, and rage ability for each trial run. After completing a challenge within a trial, players can opt for upgrading their weapon, relic, or stats, but these enhancements only apply to that specific trial run. Each run and the completion of specific gameplay challenges unlock permanent rewards. If a player dies, they restart the trial from the beginning. The downloadable content (DLC) also introduces new enemies, including new and familiar ones from the Greek era games like cyclopes and minotaurs.

+ Challenging but Gradual & Organic Progression System
+ Unique Combat System & Mechanics are fun and enticing
+ Excellent Epilogue, with its Plot and depthness
+ Characters Performances & Lore are [expectedly] top-notch
+ Valhalla & Visuals look heavenly stunning
+ A Love Letter to all God of War fans, old and new

- Little bit too much emphasis on Combat
- Certain Combat Perks are underwhelming
- Certain Level sizes are somewhat exaggerated

Final Score: 9.8 / 10

One of the best DLC’s that I’ve ever played, still can’t believe that they give it free. After playing it i’m pretty sure that they will remake the first two game’s with the game play of the god of war 2018 which is perfect, hope my theory becomes real and we play the whole series in this gameplay ♥️🥰😍

A great free surprise that we only learned about a week ago, and I've now beaten.

Overall, just an awesome love letter to the franchise and a good epilogue to Ragnarok. It touches on many themes or guilt and forgiveness, all while giving us a fun rogue like mode.

There is no way they're not remaking the OG game.

Technically I 100% it in the sense of getting all the trophies. Good enough for me.

Simply excellent Rogue Like DLC. Adds so much to the Kratos story and the combat is as fun as ever.
