God of War Ragnarok has finally released, and PlayStation studios are celebrating through crossover artwork with The Last of Us, Days Gone and more.
Major PlayStation Studios developers are celebrating the launch of God of War Ragnarök with adorable crossover artwork. The action-packed sequel has finally arrived, letting players dive into Kratos and Atreus’ final journey through the land of Norse mythology. Santa Monica Studio is no doubt celebrating the game’s success, and fellow PlayStation Studios teams have created some amazing illustrations to help commemorate the occasion.
To celebrate the release of God of War Ragnarok, several first-party PlayStation developers have taken to Twitter to reveal artwork that combines God of War Ragnarok with their own beloved games. For example, The Last of Us creator Naughty Dog posted a piece that sees Kratos, Atreus, Joel, Ellie and Mimir joyously sledding away from a horde of monstrous enemies. The artwork from Sucker Punch Productions, meanwhile, has Kratos and Atreus preparing for battle alongside Ghost of Tsushima’s samurai protagonist Jin Sakai. A cartoonish illustration from Insomniac Games has Kratos compare weaponry with Ratchet from Ratchet and Clank, while Bend Studio shared art of Kratos and Atreus racing Days Gone motorcyclist Deacon St. John on their sled.
God of War Ragnarok’s Launch Is A Family Affair
The PlayStation Studios family have always been a tight-knit community, as evidenced by Ghost of Tsushima costumes referencing God of War and other PlayStation-exclusive franchises. Sucker Punch’s open-world Feudal Japan experience has plenty of items to help players customize Jin Sakai, but one particular set of outfits serves as a crossover with various other properties. Available for use in Ghost of Tsushima’s multiplayer Legends mode, these costumes reflect the style and design of fellow PlayStation hits like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Shadow of the Colossus and Bloodborne to let fans embrace their PlayStation pride.
Along with in-game crossovers, PlayStation Studios teams have also made it a tradition to share crossover art to honor the launch of each other’s games. Just like the various pieces of God of War Ragnarok artwork, various PlayStation developers created Horizon Forbidden West crossover art to celebrate the open-world title’s launch earlier this year. These amazing illustrations saw protagonist Aloy riding a robotic Charger alongside Deacon St. John’s motorcycle, leaping into battle with Jin Sakai, fighting back-to-back with Ellie and admiring a bow with Kratos and Atreus.
Fans have long awaited the release of God of War Ragnarok, and it appears that the PlayStation Studios family is also excited about the newly released sequel. Crossover artwork is an amazing way to celebrate the game, with Kratos and Atreus teaming up with fellow PlayStation mascots like Ratchet and Ellie to demonstrate their similarities and differences. God of War Ragnarok will draw the father-son duo into a truly mythic conflict, but a little help from their friends will help get them through it.
