There is a means for PlayStation gamers to get early access to God of War Ragnarok, but it isn’t worth it, unlike on Xbox, as the game’s release date and time in New Zealand are approaching.
The forthcoming Game of War sequel looks fantastic. This is one of the best games of 2022, with a Metacritic score of 94, making it the second-highest-rated new game of the year, trailing only Elden Ring. Although we hope to see it on PC someday, PlayStation players may be able to enjoy it this week.
When Does New Zealand Get God Of War Ragnarok?
God of War Ragnarok will be released in New Zealand on November 9 at 00:00 NZDT. The GoW PSN store in New Zealand provides this. This corresponds to 03:30 PT, 06:00 ET, and 11:00 GMT on November 8 in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Because a retailer breached the street date, some individuals were allowed to play the game before its official release date of November 9th. Cory Barlog, the director of the 2018 game, voiced his displeasure with the scenario, while Sony Santa Monica noted the unfortunate number of leaks in a tweet.
The bad news is that if you want to start playing right immediately, there isn’t a simple method as with Xbox. If you’re truly in a jam, there is a way to play a day early. The NZ technique is never suggested on PlayStation, in contrast to Xbox where it is simple. This is due to the fact that getting gift cards from PC Game Supply would need you to establish a special NZ Profile and pay extra.
Playing GoW With An Early Access
Create a New Zealand profile to gain early access to God of War Ragnarok on PlayStation. You must purchase GoW from the NZ PSN shop after creating a NZ account. As a result, the PS5 Standard edition will be $139.95, while the Deluxe edition will be $159.95.
Because credit cards will not be accepted, the only way to buy the game is to acquire New Zealand gift cards to redeem. These are available through PC Game Supply, but you’d have to pay £76.22 to get enough credit for the PS5 Standard Edition alone.
The PS4 Standard edition costs $124.95, which is equivalent to £66.03 in New Zealand dollars. When you buy the PS4 Standard edition from the NZ PSN shop, you might get a free PS5 upgrade. Even if the aforementioned solutions are appropriate, the cost increase eliminates the need for the hassle. The Standard edition for PS4 and PS5 costs £59.99 and £69.99, respectively, on the UK shop; however, the NZ gift cards would cost at least £66.03 and £76.22.
