God of War Ragnarok PS5 PS4 PlayStation

God of War Ragnarok fast approaches, as if Fimbulwinter had just ended, with the sequel to 2018's God of War set to launch on 9th November. It is reportedly going to be a journey worthy of the sagas themselves, with a full playthrough supposedly taking about 40 hours.

That's according to the reliable Tom Henderson over at Insider Gaming, who understands that 20 hours will be needed to complete the main story, and that includes around three and a half hours of cinematic scenes.

The other 20 hours are devoted to the game's sidequests, only one of which is apparently additional cinematics. That's a pretty substantial step-up in side content, as Kratos' last outing featured around half that much optional questing, according to HowLongToBeat.com. Everyone plays games differently, so your mileage may vary, but from all indications, Ragnarok is going to be a titanic undertaking, and we can't wait to get stuck in.
