God Of War PS4 Will Take 25-35 Hours To Complete

What should you do with all that time? Treat the game as a "tour bus."


The upcoming God of War game for PS4 aims to be quite a bit different from the previous entries in the series. As opposed to Greek gods, it takes Kratos to a land dominated by Nordic gods and monsters; it's also meant to be a more intimate story about Kratos and his son. As the developer revealed today during the PSX 2017 opening presentation, the game is also going to be much longer than its predecessors.

Creative Director Cory Barlog announced on stage that the game will take about 25-35 hours to complete. This would make it significantly larger than the mainline entries in the series. For comparison, all three core God of War games average around 10 hours to beat.

Now Playing: God Of War - PGW 2017 Trailer

This means that God of War PS4 is going to have a lot more content than previous titles, which Barlog hopes will be filled with exploration. There'll be different paths you can take through the world, and Barlog wants players to treat the game as a "tour bus."

God of War is currently scheduled for release sometime in 2018. The game's latest trailer was released during Paris Games Week, and it shows off some father-son combat; you can watch it in the embed above.
