God of War Ragnarok was released just a few days ago, but that hasn’t stopped some people from racing to the end of the game. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but there’s a problem when those players start massively uploading spoilers to websites like YouTube. And now, those YouTube videos — complete with spoilerific thumbnails — can be posted directly to your PS5 or PS4.
Many of you reading this already know this, but just in case: when you hover over a game on your console, you’ll see different content appear. This hub usually includes things like relevant DLC pages or trailers — but it can also throw things like live streams and YouTube videos into the mix.
Those can be especially bad news on the PS5, where the system’s dedicated ‘Explore’ tab will show all sorts of things related to the games you’re playing. The fact that several Push Square readers have been hit with God of War Ragnarok spoilers just as they are settling in for their fantasy adventure has caused us to investigate.
It’s an original shame that this can happen, but there is a way to turn it off entirely – at least on the PS5. The Explore tab allows you to restrict the games you see by selecting the ‘Following Games’ option and unchecking God of War Ragnarok – or any other title you don’t want to see. By going to the Settings menu, ‘Saved data’, ‘Followed games’, and ‘Manage followed games’, you can unfollow from there rather than using the Explore tab.
Ragnarok focuses on the end of the Norse gods. The hero, Kratos, has to fight with his fellow gods to prevent this from happening.
