God of War Ragnarok’s Jotnar Edition is already selling for hundreds more than its original price by scalpers.
Just earlier today, July 15, God of War Ragnarok finally went up for pre-order around the world, starting in the UK and Europe. While the Jotnar Edition originally sold for £ 229.99 in UK storefronts, it is already sold for at least double that price online.
For example, if you are switching to eBay UK (opens in new tab) right now you will see that there are several ads for Ragnarok’s Jotnar Edition selling for well over £ 500. The listings actually drop in price from there, but generally drop to over £ 200 in total.
Still, it is a serious condition for the customers. With dealer games (opens in new tab) already listing the Jotnar Edition as sold out, there is currently no other way for UK customers to grab the special edition than going through retailers, and even then it is not as if consumers are guaranteed a copy.
We will probably see this happen again later today when the US pre-orders for Ragnarok and its various editions open. Pre-orders in the US were to go live at 7.00 PT / 10.00 ET, so we have to wait and see if scalpers are quick to get their hands on editions like Jotnar Edition and relist it online.
If you did not already know, the Jotnar version of Ragnarok does not include the physical game in the sequel, but instead includes a retail voucher that PS4 or PS5 customers can redeem for a digital version of the new game.
In the meantime some God of War Ragnarok fan theorist claims that Fenrir can actually side with Kratos and Atreus in the end.
