God of War Ragnarok Gets Age Rating in First Region

The release date of God of War: Ragnarok noticed in the PlayStation database may not be an accident, as the first country has just gave the game an age rating.

On Monday, we wrote about a possible release date for God of War: Ragnarok spotted in the PlayStation database - the title will supposedly launch on PS4 and PS5 on September 30, 2022. As improbable as it may seem, we could only hope that there was at least a semblance of truth to it. The Arabic equivalent of PEGI - General Commission For Audiovisual Media - has given an age rating to the upcoming game by studio Santa Monica.

If the above picture isn't clear enough, the subtitles on it mean that God of War: Ragnarok will be aimed at people over 18 years old. This is nothing new as all of Kratos' adventures have been given the same age rating, for obvious reasons. The important thing, however, is that the age rating is usually given a few months before the release of a given game.

So unless we're dealing with a mistake and/or premature action, we can assume that Sony will announce the official release date of the game in the first weeks of the new year. Until then, it's better to approach this information with caution; especially since the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 showed that receiving an age raqting does not guarantee anything.
