How to get Darkdale and Risen Snow armor in God of War Ragnarok

Where are your pre-order and Deluxe Edition bonuses?

Darkdale armor and Risen Snow armor are special armor sets in God of War Ragnarok that you get if you buy the Deluxe Edition and if you pre-ordered the game, respectively. Both armor sets have much better stats and bonuses than anything else you can find, buy, or craft during the early part of the game, but you don’t get either of them at the very start. You have to play a little while before you can find and equip them.

How to unlock the Deluxe Edition and pre-order bonuses in God of War Ragnarok

You have to play through the Surviving Fimbulwinter goal, which is the first hour or two of the game. During Surviving Fimbulwinter, you’ll have to beat three bosses: Bjorn, Thor, and The Huntress, and kill many Raiders. You’ll also discover that Atreus has been looking for Tyr behind Kratos’ back but that he might have good reason to be doing so. When you complete Surviving Fimbulwinter, Sindri, the dwarf, invites you to move into his house in the realm. Between realms and inside Sindri’s House is the Huldra Brothers’ Shop, where Brok (Sindri’s blue brother) can craft weapons and armor for you or else sell it to you pre-made.

The game tutorial will insist that you make one purchase at the Huldra Brother’s Shop. However, if you’ve bought the Deluxe Edition, or pre-ordered the game, don’t spend any resources of currency and armor at this point, as nothing you can get will be better than Risen Snow or Darkdale armor. When you leave the shop, Brok will tell you that he found some items you left behind and tossed them in the chest. The chest he’s referring to is the huge Lost Items chest next to the shop counter. Open it to get your pre-order bonus rewards (the Risen Snow armor set) or Deluxe Edition bonus rewards (the Darkdale armor set).
