How to pre-order God of War Ragnarok: retailers, editions, and bonuses

Are you ready for Ragnarok? After five years, many delays, and tons of speculation as to whether or not we would even get the game in 2022, God of War Ragnarok has finally gotten a firm release date of November 9, 2022. We’re all itching to rejoin Kratos and Atreus for their next adventure that will dive even deeper into the realm of Norse gods, monsters, and myth. Based on how well-received the initial reboot was in 2018, there are plenty of people out there who are ready to jump in on this game on day one with no hesitation.

While it isn’t likely God of War Ragnarok will be unavailable to anyone who wants it, fans who want to really show their love for the series and show off some exclusive items will want to make sure to pre-order one of the numerous editions of the game. This is perhaps the biggest title launch of 2022, and as such, there are a number of editions ranging in price and content, physical and digital, that the most dedicated fans will be scooping up as soon as they’re available. Here are all the editions of God of War Ragnarok and how you can pre-order them.

The Launch Edition is essentially just what they’re calling any basic copy of the game you pre-order, either on PlayStation 4 or PS5 for $60 or $70 respectively. However, you do still get two bonus items for doing so:

  • Kratos Risen Snow Armor
  • Atreus Risen Snow Tunic

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s arachnophobia toggle removes all spiders
Cal Kestis with BD-1 droid on his shoulder.

From endless hordes of Empire goons to hulking Rancors that can crush you in one or two hits, there are no doubt a lot of things to be afraid of in EA's new action-adventure sequel Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. However, if one of your fears happens to be spiders, developer Respawn has got you covered with an arachnophobia toggle that completely removes spiders from the game.

Survivor's Arachnophobia Safe Mode ensures that players who aren't particularly fond of eight-legged creepy-crawlies will never have to engage with any spiders that might crawl their way on-screen partway through the campaign. It's an unexpected addition to a game that is otherwise filled to the brim with strange and unsettling creatures to observe and fight, but spiders no doubt have a special way of freaking some of us out. Many folks are certain to appreciate seeing a choice to avoid arachnids altogether when they find themselves scrolling through the game's suite of accessibility options.

The best skills to buy first in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Jedi Cal Kestis.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has improved upon the original game in almost every way, and that includes expanding main character Cal Kestis' wide selection of skills and abilities. Whether it's new stances to engage with or entirely new skill sets to acquire, you'll find plenty to unravel throughout the game's lengthy adventure. If you're just getting started, though, you may find that your limited skill points leave you wondering which skills are worth your investment. Don't fret, though, as we've got the best skills for you to buy first in this guide.

Before we get started, however, be aware that the decisions you make in your skill tree can be reversed by spending 1 skill point, giving you the option to try new builds as you play. Luckily, that shouldn't generally be necessary – especially if you're thorough with your exploration – as Jedi Survivor has no level cap. Because of this, you can continue to grind out infinite skill points whenever you wish. In other words, you can max out the entire skill tree by the end of the game. With that out of the way, here are the best skills to buy first.

How to respec in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Cal stands beneath the clouds in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor key art.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor comes packing a significant upgrade to its predecessor's customization, exploration, and other features – including a whole new skill tree for you to dig into on your journey through the galaxy. This eagerly anticipated sequel boasts a total of three main skill types and nine total trees to invest in, meaning that you'll have an opportunity to build main character Cal Kestis however you'd like. Luckily, if you're feeling any remorse about where you've put your points, you can easily respec them and try again – for a price.

However, before we tell you how to respec, keep in mind that you can earn skill points infinitely, so you can technically max out every skill tree by the end of the game. This means that most of your choices won't hamper your progress too much, especially if you're exploring thoroughly, scanning everything with BD-1, and uncovering hidden skill points all around the biomes. Still, if you're regretting a skill or two, let's respec them, shall we?
How to respec in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
You can respec very easily in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, so don't be too alarmed if you've made a bum choice or two. Simply visit any meditation point in the game and open up your skill trees. At the bottom-left of the screen, you'll see a button that you can press that says Reset All Skills, allowing you to respec all of your skill points.
