“The short answer is yes. There is a way to do it…it’s there in the game.”
God of War Ragnarok transmog (read: the ability to customize the look of your gear without losing its stats) is in! The news comes straight from the game’s official Discord, where a developer Q&A confirmed it.
While the Q&A was conducted over voice, MP1st managed to get the full transcription, where combat lead Mihir Sheth spilled the beans on God of War Ragnarok transmog:
Q: “Since we’re talking about armor. I like to look good, alright everyone at the studio knows this about me. Fashion first for Kratos, of course. I know one of the request for 2018 was the ability to maybe have the stats you want, but you know, give Kratos the runway look you want. So this is a question from SpiritWolf and a lot of other people; Will there be an armor transmog system?”
Mihir Sheth: “The short answer is yes. There is a way to do it…it’s there in the game.”
The answer is a bit cryptic, and it’s unclear whether or not it’s going to be a free-for-all anything goes model (where you can just toggle it), or if it needs to be unlocked/requires a reagent/consumable of some kind. Either way, it’s confirmed in some form.
