Visible Resentment with God Of War Ragnarok Animations

The Twitter user from the above tweet shows visible resentment over the animations of GOW Ragnarok.

– new runes/abilities – all 9 realms are in the game.

However, it is likely that the game is still in its developmental stages and these animations may change over time. And PlayStation has also, on the official blog site, teased several narrative elements of the storyline, gameplay features, and new additions into the sequel.

While the disappointment fans showed on Twitter is understandable, it is highly unlikely that Santa Monica will let gamers down with the next installment in one of the most popular franchises ever created.
