Just like Ragnarok, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also has its setting in the Norse Mythological world. It has a massive open world filled to the brim with content and mysteries to explore. The RPG elements and the progression are also very similar to GoW. The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has a massive single-player campaign that may take 100+ hours to complete. 

Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

If you enjoyed the monster-filled world of GoW then Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is just the game for you. The dark fantasy world of Witcher has a lot to offer and the amazing characters and magnificently well-written plot of the Game make it a worthy post-GoW game. Just like GoW, Witcher 3 was also nominated for the “Game of the Year” awards.

Horizon Forbidden West

The open-world aspects of GOW can be found in Horizon Forbidden West. The game also offers a vast map filled with monsters and creatures but, the only difference is, instead of massive mythical creatures of the epics, the monsters in Horizon are colossal robots. The exploration possibilities are endless in this game. 

A Plague Tale

Ragnarok teaches us that no matter what, family always comes first. A Plague Tale does the same, as the game tells a story of a young brother and sister making their way through the dark plague-ridden world. All they have is each other in their perilous adventure. 

The Last of Us

And last but not least is another legendary PlayStation exclusive, The Last of Us. The Last of Us plates heavily into the father-child dynamic, very much similar to the God of War Ragnarok. In the Last of Us, Joel and Ellie, an unlikely father and daughter duo, fight and survive a world full of threats and perils. The amazing story, gameplay, and deep and moving themes are perfect for satisfying your post-God of War itch.
