2021 was when it was expected hence the delayed to 2022
I think we all knew when it said 2021 that wasn't likely to happen, I'm sure when development first started they probably targeted 2021 but with the pandemic and everything they had to have known that was a long shot when they announced it last year.

Not a fan of this. Makes me think of End Game fat Thor. Blech. I want badass Thor, not over the hill Thor....
Thor was never a blonde ripped Australian lol this is more accurate to the mythology.

Thor is described as a Paragon of strength and masculine virility in mythology, hardly how he is portrayed here lol

The "real' Thor has red hair, is left handed, has a full beard and was said to have eaten an entire cow while dressed as a woman lol he's supposed to have an huge appetite. The one we see in the pic looks like he fits that description far more than Chris Hemsworth. In that time I doubt the people making up these stories judged a mans masculinity based on his abs lol.

Don’t know, Chris Hemsworth looks like he could eat a cow to me.

It looks great, but it also looks as I expected it to look, so I can't say I'm "wowed". They did too good of a job of the first one - a victim of their own success.

With the setting and the characters I don't know how different some people expected it to look, we are going to be able to go to all 9 realms this time so it's bigger than the last one and they said it's not all snowy areas.

Williams also explained that this thought, of evolving and deepening what players experienced before, is also being applied to Ragnarok's actual world, which will let players visit all Nine Realms whereas God of War 2018 omitted some. And even though Fimbulwinter has begun, players shouldn't expect to only encounter snowy realms.

"Going to all the Nine Realms, that was big for me making the old new again. Any realm you've been to before, because Fimbulwinter has struck, they're changed in some way. It doesn't mean that every realm is effected by snow, by the way. I think that's a misnomer...Fimbulwinter is an event that changes the realms in different ways. Midgard is the cataclysmic epicenter, so it got permafrost, almost if you will."

But all of the additions the team is making are very methodically intentioned - while the gameplay teases hint at a greater variety than even 2018's God of War offered, Williams wants to make sure all of these new additions mean something to the experience, using an example from combat that indicates how these additions have wider effects.

Balder is the handsome guy, Thor never was, marvel just took random superhero body and slapped on a helmet and hammer.
Have absolutely no problem with this version, more authentic than pretty boy Thor from marvel.
Pretty and badass are not the same. Doesn't need to look like MCU Thor, but he should be all that is warrior, imo. Still, it's hard not to trust these guys. Maybe it'll work better than expected.

Are far as eating cows, has anyone seen how much food the Rock puts away a day? Big dudes need lots of foods...
