Tom Henderson at Insider Gaming has reported that God of War Ragnarok will be around 40 hours in length.
According to sources known to the website, the upcoming and much-anticipated sequel’s core campaign will take players around the same amount of time to complete as God of War (2018), clocking in at approximately 20 hours with 3.5 of those hours taken up by cutscenes. The additional 20 hours comes from side content, including an hour of extra cutscenes, which is a pretty significant bump-up from the less than 10 hours of side content in the previous title.
While these are obviously in-house estimates and won’t reflect the experience when players get their hands on the game on November 9th, nor does it speak to the quality of the game itself, it at least gives us an indication that players can expect more optional content in God of War Ragnarok. It’s to be expected too, given we’re going to be able to explore all of the game’s realms this time around.
