God of War Ragnarok, a follow-up to the acclaimed 2018 soft-reboot of the franchise, is unquestionably one of the most highly awaited video games of 2022, with players anxious to see the epic climax to Kratos’ Norse saga. In the midst of all this excitement and speculation, the game’s length supposedly leaked.
The previous game was fairly long and had a tonne of side stuff, including some fantastic and challenging end-game boss fights, while being a linear story-driven adventure.
While Santa Monica Studio and PlayStation have remained mum on the game’s plot and quests, recent leaks indicate that the future title will be as sizable and provide players with a wide range of engaging stuff to explore.
Despite being a linear game, God of War (2018) had a 15-20 hour story and 10 to 15 hours of side material that players could access after completing the main campaign. This successfully increased the game’s length to a decent 30-35 hour figure, which provides enough content to warrant its $60 price without dragging on for too long.
It appears that Santa Monica Studio is adopting a similar strategy for the length and structure of the sequel, God of War Ragnarok. According to recent sources, the game will last roughly 40 hours when all the ancillary content for players is taken into account.
Given that players will be able to visit all realms in Ragnarok, including those that weren’t accessible in the previous game, the length is obviously longer than in the previous title. This comprises Svartalheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard, each of which offers a good amount of narratives and information.
The primary story of God of War Ragnarok takes up about 20 hours of the game’s total playtime, including three and a half hours of cinematic cutscenes and 17 hours of gameplay. The game’s side content, including collectable hunting, must be completed in the remaining 20 hours.
Even though God of War Ragnarok’s release is just one month away, PlayStation appears to be quite reticent about disclosing details about the game. In fact, the creators haven’t even released a dedicated gameplay trailer to show off the upcoming title’s gameplay and combat system.
The game has not yet had a State of Play event, which PlayStation holds for each of its planned first-party games, frequently months before their release. Although it has been rumoured that a State of Play for God of War Ragnarok will be released this month, neither PlayStation nor Santa Monica Studio have officially confirmed it.
God of War Ragnarok arrives on November 9, 2022 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
