The cinematics in God of War 2 clock in at around 4.5 hours. About a month before God of War Ragnarok’s October 27 release, eager gamers have started preparing for their first playthrough. Santa Monica Studio has probably created a similar experience, which will cause fans to stick their behinds on their gaming chair as they complete the epic adventure with Kratos and his son Atreus after the 2018 title left fans speechless with its story and gameplay.
Sony and Santa Monica Studio have been tight-lipped about the game’s actual gameplay, but recent leaks have indicated that players will need several hours of uninterrupted time to complete the game in one sitting. Insider Gaming estimates that playing through both the main story and all of the side quests in God of War: Ragnarok will take about 40 hours.

The main story can be completed in about 20 hours if the player doesn’t bother with any of the optional side quests. Santa Monica Studio has clocked in 4.5 hours toward the cinematics out of a total of 40, with 3.5 hours dedicated to clips related to the game’s primary quest.
The main quest is about the same length as the 2018 PlayStation Game of the Year winner, but if you want to see everything, you’ll need to invest about 7.5 more hours than you did in the original. Fans of the game on the PS4 and PS5 should waste no time in downloading it before its release on November 9, and neither can we.
In 2017, David Jaffe on his YouTube channel stated that God of War: Ragnarok would last 40 hours. Experts tell me the length of the game is 40 hours. The target playtime is 40 hours. Whether or not that represents a Platinum Trophy completion is unknown to me. Is it guaranteed? No. Modifications are made both to remove and add elements. But here’s what I can tell you: “They’re aiming for 40 hours of gameplay in the new God of War.”
Also, actor Lance Reddick may have just let slip that he’s working on an extension to Horizon: Forbidden West. If you prefer rumors to facts, consider the recent speculation that Kojima’s next game will be a sequel to Death Stranding.
