If you wanted God of War Ragnarök to be lengthier than its predecessor, then I am afraid you will be a little disappointed. A recent report by the reputable leaker, Tom Henderson, makes some bold claims about the game. He claims that the highly anticipated sequel will be around 40 hours long.

David Jaffe, the creator of God of War IP, made the same claim last year.

Length of God of War Ragnarök

The entire game might be 40 hours long, but the main story will only be 20 hours long, the rest will be for sidequests. Out of the 20 hours, the cinematic scenes will take up to three and a half hours, and the gameplay will take 16 and a half hours. The side content will feature more gameplay portions than the main quests. There will be 19 hours of gameplay and one hour of cinematic scenes.

The length of the main story is very similar to the 2018 game. Many fans including me expected the final game in the Norse Saga to feature a longer main story. However, that apparently won’t be the case. This doesn’t mean the game will be bad by any chance; continuous engaging content for 40 hours is better than 100 hours of fetch-quests and busy work.

Plus, the length of God of War Ragnarök could vary depending on the difficulty and playstyle. I intend to take my time with the game, so I am sure I can squeeze at least 60 hours from it. I just hope the sequel is filled with tons of epic boss fights.

Release Date and Platform

God of War Ragnarök will launch on PS4 and PS5 on November 9, and can now be pre-ordered. The game hasn’t been confirmed for PC just yet, but given that several PlayStation games are coming to Microsoft Windows, we think it’s only a matter of time. Also, the 2018 title is available on the master race, so it makes sense to bring the sequel as well
