The new God of War Ragnarok commercial is here, and Sony pulled Ben Stiller, John Travolta, LeBron James, and their children in for a support group in the ad. Stiller leads it as the fathers and their kids discuss being a parent and idolizing Kratos and Atreus’ relationship. [Thanks, Entertainment Weekly!]
Ben Stiller is leading the group in full God of War Ragnarok attire in the ad, with his son Quin by his side. He dispenses insight to John Travolta, who is there with Ella Travolta, and LeBron James, who is in attendance with Bronny. Stiller notes early on “The God of War dynamic plays out in every parent-child relationship. When that clicked for me, I picked up my Leviathan Axe and felt truly close to my son for the first time.” Quin Stiller then responds, “I’m 17.” This sets the dynamic for the rest of the video.
Here is the full God of War Ragnarok commercial.
Most of the previous God of War Ragnarok videos are more traditional. For example, the September 2022 State of Play trailer released in time for the 2022 Tokyo Game Show focused on the story so far.
God of War Ragnarok will come to the PS4 and PS5 on November 9, 2022. The game “went gold” at the beginning of October 2022.
