A new leak has revealed a possible approximate gameplay time for God of War: Ragnarok that shows the game could feature more side missions than its predecessor.
According to a report from Insider Gaming, God of War: Ragnarok will take around 40 hours to complete. To be clear, this includes side quests. A straight shot at the main story will take about 20 hours. The report also claims that approximately three and a half hours of the main story’s total runtime consists of cuts. As for the 20 hours dedicated to side missions, only one hour will be cutscenes.
The report doesn’t say where the store got that information or what, if any, playback test data it’s based on. He states that these numbers are just an estimate and that many factors will affect the final number of hours. Comparing the leaked numbers to the previous game’s aggregated data on How Long To Beat shows that Ragnarok’s main story is roughly the same length as its 2018 predecessor. However, the suggested 40-hour playtime is around seven and a half hours longer than the overall average play time listed in How Long To Beat, meaning that Ragnarok could feature more side quest content than the last game.
