God of War Ragnarok's completion will be around 40 hours, sources claim. Around 4.5 hours will be of cinematics.
God of War Ragnarok is around 40 hours in length, Insider Gaming has learned. It’s understood that the entire experience is around 40 hours, with 20 hours needed to complete the game’s main story. Sources have said that around 3 and a half hours of the 20 hours played will be cinematic scenes, with the remaining 16 and a half hours for gameplay. The other 20 hours of game time is to complete all of the additional side quests, with around 19 hours dedicated to gameplay and an additional 1 hour of cinematics.
Of course, these numbers are just estimates and will vary wildly depending on your playstyle.
This would mean that God of War Ranarok’s length would be around the same length as God of War (2018) with its main story, but around 8-9 hours longer with its side quests. According to How Long To Beat, which tracks how long it takes people to complete games, the average completion time of God of War 2018’s main story and side questions is around 32 hours. It was revealed 2 weeks ago that the file size for God of War Ragnarok is around 90.6GB on the PlayStation 4, which will be double the size of the 2018 game if true.
God of War Ragnarok’s length was previously mentioned to be 40 hours last year by David Jaffe on his YouTube channel.
“I’m hearing from people in the know that that game is 40 hours. They’re aiming for 40 hours of gameplay. I don’t know if that’s a 100% Platinum Trophy completion or if that’s average playtime. Is it guaranteed? No. Things get cut, things get added. But what I can tell you right now – 40 hours of gameplay is what they’re shooting for the new God of War“, it was said.
