We’re around a month away from the God of War Ragnarok release date, and some big details about the game are already starting to be leaked. The latest is the God of War Ragnarok’s length, and while it’s campaign seems to be on a par to 2018’s God of War, it looks like fans will be getting a bit more additional content than the last game.

God of War Ragnarok will take around 40 hours to beat, according to a new report by Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson. Its main campaign will apparently last around 20 hours, which is a similar kind of run time to its predecessor. Henderson also claims that the campaign will contain around three and a half hours of cinematics. The additional content that takes God of War Ragnarok’s total length up to 40 hours will consist of side quests and other optional activities.

According to How Long To Beat, the average completion time for God of War 2018 was around 32 hours, so Ragnarok is shaping up to have more additional content.

While not mentioned in Henderson’s report, aspects such as collectibles and PlayStation trophies could also push Ragnarok’s playtime beyond 40 hours. How Long To Beat calculates it takes upwards of 50 hours to achieve 100% completion on the 2018 game, despite there being just 32 hours of content.

God of War Ragnarok is arguably the most anticipated upcmong PS5 game of 2022, and with the 2018 game getting glowing reviews, many are expecting more of the same.
