The release of the much-anticipated God of War Ragnarok is scheduled for November 9, a date that may have a significant bearing on the game’s narrative and canonical content.
The highly anticipated sequel to 2018’s God of War, God of War Ragnarok is called Ragnarok. Even though it was released without a photo mode, it has received really high review scores, thus it looks like it will be able to live up to the enormous expectations that were established by its predecessor.
The video game is scheduled to be launched very soon, on November 9, which may be of greater significance to many people than they initially believed.
A recent tweet from the account @EmManuDoll made a comment regarding this release date, speculating that it may have a direct connection to the moon cycles as well as Norse mythology. The creator of the game, Santa Monica Studio, retweeted the tweet, and the director of the studio, Cory Barlog, also replied with a strange GIF, hinting that fans might have uncovered the secret behind the chosen release date of November 9 from the message.
November 9 Coincides With a Special Lunar Event
It was explained by EmManuDoll that a Total Lunar Eclipse will take place the day prior, on November 8. An occurrence of this kind takes place when the sun, Earth, and moon are in alignment, preventing sunlight from reaching the moon. The total lunar eclipse on November 8 is going to take place during a full moon, which will result in a blood moon.

A blood moon is characterised by the moon taking on a reddish hue. This occurrence is brought on by the atmosphere of Earth, which blocks out colours with shorter wavelengths while allowing colours with longer wavelengths, such as red and orange, to pass through and brighten the moon.
The Earth’s atmosphere is responsible for causing this phenomenon. These lunar cycles have deep roots in Norse mythology and hold the key to deciphering the meaning behind the timing of the release of God of War: Ragnarok.
How God of War Ragnarök’s Norse Mythology Links to the Lunar Cycles
The enormous wolf that can be seen in most of the advertising material for God of War: Ragnarok has a crucial role to play. This wolf, known as Fenrir, is Loki’s and the female Jotunn Angrboa’s offspring.
According to Norse mythology, Fenrir is destined to usher in the beginning of Ragnarok by consuming Odin himself in order to fulfil his destiny. On the other hand, Fenrir is eventually bound by “impossible ties,” such as those created from the breath of a fish and the beard of a lady. It is then said that Skoll and Hati, his offspring, will meet the same tragic end as their father.
EmManuDoll underscores the significance of the forthcoming Blood Moon by explaining how, in Norse mythology, Skoll and Hati are thought to chase after the sun and moon. It is stated that they have their victim when a Total Lunar Eclipse takes place, and when a Blood Moon takes place, it is said that they have devoured their prey.
This event is significant due to the fact that it marks the beginning of Ragnarok. It does not appear to be merely a coincidence that God of War Ragnarok will be released on the day after the world’s end is shown to be drawing near.

The video game is set to come out soon, on November 9. This may be more important to many people than they thought at first. This kind of thing happens when the sun, Earth, and moon are all lined up in a way that stops sunlight from getting to the moon.
