Tonight at the PlayStation Experience 2017, God of War creative director Cory Barlog revealed about how long it will take players to complete the new game. While God of War games are usually around 10 hours, the next God of War is a bit bigger.
"We are in final phases right now. Doing a lot of playtesting," said Barlog on stage. "Over the last four or five playtests, we've been clocking the total gameplay time is somewhere in the arena of 25 to 35 hours. So accidentally made it a lot bigger."
God of War is a narrative-driven game, instead one of focused on purely on combat.
"One of the original things I was talking to people about was treating the game like a tour bus. You're in this massive world and we're rewarding the player for being curious. You can pull the string to get off the tour bus and you can kind look around, but the bus is always a few steps away, no matter what you do," added Barlog.
God of War will be coming to PlayStation 4 in Early 2018, though a recent leak indicated a March release.
