This fan-made God of War Ragnarok demake trailer is incredible

God of War Ragnarok may be Sony’s latest showcase for the PS5, but that didn’t stop one fan from almost immediately making a God of War Ragnarok trailer showcasing what the hit action game would’ve looked like as a retro game on the original PlayStation (first spotted by Eurogamer). YouTuber Jackarte created and posted the minute-long trailer on Ragnarok’s launch day, transforming some of the official trailer’s more iconic sequences into pixelated nostalgia – and a few smushed faces.

After the PSX logo disappears, the trailer shows Atreus and Kratos sledding along an ice sheet toward an imposing fortress before switching to a shot of Freya transforming from a raven to a woman and attacking Kratos.

The whole thing is an impressive achievement, though naturally, some aspects don’t transfer quite so smoothly. Atreus’ scene where he shoots an arrow toward the sky, a spectacle in the launch trailer, consists of him just shooting a vast, blank orange expanse, and the model fidelity doesn’t quite survive intact, as you’d expect. 

Jackarte is no stranger to this kind of artistry either. Their more recent uploads include a Silent Hill: Townfall demake, The Witcher 3 in PS1 style – which looks surprisingly inviting, despite CD Projekt RED’s next-gen update on the way – and even a Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom trailer in the style of a Nintendo64 game.
