Thanks to a member of the press who was accidentally sharing screenshots of God of War Ragnarök from their PS5 to their public Twitter, we now know some massive spoilers. We're going to share them here so, please turn around now if you care about spoilers.

Journalist Reveals God of War Plot Spoilers To The World
One of the journalists who was given a review copy of God of War ahead of release was accidentally sharing screenshots of the game to their public Twitter over the weekend of October 21. If you haven't played much on a PS5 then you might not be aware of how the sharing function works, but it's not easy to see how someone could make this mistake. Still, we all have our "off days".
We don't want to humiliate the person who accidentally did this, so we won't be sharing their Twitter handle. Luckily, the screenshots were collected by another account (@ArtGowSaga), and so we'll share that repost instead:
There were a great many more screenshots besides, but these were certainly the most visually compelling.
