At the PSX 2017 opening ceremony, Sony shared new details regarding the length of gameplay in the upcoming 2018 installment of God of War.
Originally the game’s developers expected God of War to contain around 15 hours of gameplay. However, testing conducted over a period of a few weeks revealed the game’s total play time averaged between 25 and 35 hours, a significant increase over both the original estimate and earlier series entries. This news is sure to delight fans who enjoy spending more time playing their favorite games, as previous God of War titles averaged only ten hours of gameplay on normal difficulty levels.
According to an article on IGN, Santa Monica Studio’s creative director Cory Barlog also revealed that the game is in its final phases of development, but he remained tight-lipped about an official release date. Stating he would “love to be able to tell people” when the game would arrive, he then joked, “but my dog ate the release date, so I don’t have that right now.”
Barlog previously spoke about some of the themes of the God of War reboot back in July, and interested readers can check that out. In addition, gamers can check out the newest gameplay trailer below, first released a month ago at Paris Games Week 2017.
