How to Get Bonus DLC Items in God of War Ragnarok

Both your preorder and Deluxe Edition DLC items will be redeemable via a print out code in the box of your game, or in an accompanying email if you bought a physical copy online from a retailer. For those that purchased God of War Ragnarok as a digital download, you don’t need to do anything at this point as the content will download alongside the game.

The code for your DLC will then need to be entered in the PlayStation Store. Head over to it and then select the ‘Redeem Code’ section from the three dot menu at the top of the PlayStation Store app on PS5. Enter the code as it’s displayed and confirm you want to redeem the content.

Now go ahead and load up God of War Ragnarok. All of the in-game items such as the Darkdale Blade Handles and Axe grip, as well as the Risen Snow armor and tunic have to be unlocked through story progression in the game.

It will be clear when you’ve unlocked these, as they’ll appear on the right-hand side of the screen in a tab informing you that you’ve got some new gear in your inventory to check out.
