Annie Wersching has passed away, Rumbleverse might be shutting down, and there is speculation of a God of War Ragnarok DLC.

God of War Ragnarok DLC

PlayStation recently conducted a Live from PlayStation 5 event, unveiling upcoming games for the PlayStation 5 console in the coming year. One of the highlights of the event was the speculation surrounding a potential DLC announcement for God of War Ragnarok, as a giant Leviathan Axe was spotted in Central London. Fans of the God of War franchise are eagerly awaiting any news or updates regarding the much-anticipated Ragnarok DLC. As soon as any information becomes available, we will be sure to report it here on Gaming News.


The original God of War released in 2018 introduced players to a reimagined Kratos, now residing in the realm of Norse mythology. The game's stunning visuals, immersive storyline, and brutal combat garnered critical acclaim, making it one of the defining titles of the PlayStation 4 era. With the announcement of God of War Ragnarok, fans are eagerly anticipating the next chapter in Kratos' journey.


Sony Santa Monica, the studio behind God of War, has been tight-lipped about the details of the upcoming DLC. However, industry insiders and fans alike have been buzzing with excitement and speculating on what this expansion will bring to the table. Will we see new realms to explore, powerful foes to battle, or deepened character development for Kratos and his son Atreus? Only time will tell.


The release of the PlayStation 5 has brought with it a wave of incredible games, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in terms of graphics, gameplay, and immersion. With its lightning-fast SSD, ray tracing capabilities, and haptic feedback-enabled DualSense controller, the PlayStation 5 offers a next-gen gaming experience like no other. God of War Ragnarok promises to utilize these new technologies to deliver an even more breathtaking and immersive experience.


In addition to the excitement surrounding God of War Ragnarok, PlayStation's blog recently reported that supply issues for the PlayStation 5 should now technically be over. This news comes as a relief for many gamers who have been eagerly trying to get their hands on the new console since its release. With the availability of more units, gamers can look forward to experiencing God of War Ragnarok and other upcoming titles on the PlayStation 5 without the worry of scarcity.

Rumbleverse Shutting Down

In other news, Rumbleverse, a popular online multiplayer game, is reportedly going to be shutting down soon. While no official announcement has been made yet, renowned industry insider Tom Henderson predicted that the takedown of the game will be announced imminently and completed by the end of February. This news has left fans of the game disappointed and curious about the reasons behind its closure.


Rumbleverse, developed by a renowned studio, offered players a unique multiplayer experience with vibrant visuals, exciting gameplay mechanics, and a variety of game modes. It gained a dedicated following and received positive feedback from both players and critics alike. Despite its initial success, the decision to shut down Rumbleverse has been met with confusion and disappointment within the gaming community.


Speculations regarding the reasons behind the closure range from financial issues to the developers shifting their focus to other projects. However, until an official announcement is made, it remains uncertain what led to the decision to shut down the game. The news has undoubtedly left fans wondering about the fate of their in-game progress, item collections, and the future of the studio itself.


As we await the official announcement, we will continue to monitor any updates regarding Rumbleverse and provide you with the latest information here on Gaming News. It's always disheartening to see a game beloved by so many come to an end, but we hope that the developers will find success in their future endeavors.
