God Of War Ragnarok Spoilers Are Making The Internet A Difficult Place To Navigate

Don’t ruin my Ragnarok

If you have a similar taste to my own, you may well be jittering with excitement to see what awaits Atreus and Kratos in God of War Ragnarök. What may be less exciting is the fact that a silly mistake by a retailer has seen the game hit players hands almost two entire weeks early, meaning that there is now a hefty glut of plot details leaking into the web landscape. And these aren’t just little plot points – this is the entire narrative open to be viewed by whoever wishes to.

While the leak is a few days old at this point, it’s quite curious to see the reactions of internet denizens who wish to both experience the epic story on their own, but also to protect others who may be caught in the crossfire of an all out spoiler war.

This includes people militantly reporting sources of leaks from content creators that want to leverage spoilers for clout, and my personal favourite: The absolute legends who muddy the waters by adding their own entirely fake leaks:

It’s hard to believe that Kratos would look Thor in the eye, and say “IT’S THORBIN TIME!” – but here we are.

A statement was made by Santa Monica Studio as soon as it was apparent that the leak was the real deal, and shocking no one it’s a plea to the respect of others and their opportunity to experience what they have creafted:

While I personally have my own methods to avoid more egregious spoilers, I found myself not immune to the information overload. Of all the places, a Facebook Group for Dads to discuss their children’s TV shows ended up revealing a bit more about a boss fight than I would have liked – so now I am on extra high alert. I am getting my haircut later today, do I need to fear my barber asking if I saw the <SPOILER> boss fight? Will my own wife reveal the shocking truth behind <SPOILER>?

I will triple my efforts, taking the advice of my Twitter brethren:

Thank god it’s only a few short days until the game will grace my own console – a short enough wait that if I need to retreat to my spoiler bunker I don’t even need to stock that much food, and will only generate a mild unwashed stink.

Best of luck to us all.
