For the average player on the standard difficulty setting, God of War Ragnarok will take approximately 30 hours to complete. This is factoring in some exploration, the completion of several Favours or side-quests, and light collectible hunting. If you want to complete all the Favours then your playtime will increase to around 50 hours, and could raise as high as 60 hours if you're looking to achieve 100 per cent completion.

If you mainline the story on a lower difficulty setting, and rush, it's possible to reach the credits within approximately 25 hours. You can refer to our list of All Quests to see how well you're progressing. If you'd like to expedite your 100% completion, we also have checklists for All Collectibles that can help you quickly locate any items you're missing across the Nine Realms.
