Looking forward to the reviews this week. Nice OT.
The full review embargo for God of War: Ragnarok will lift on Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 9 am PST
Have they mentioned what, if any, improvements there are for ps5?
This seems to match up with earlier leaks that claimed that Ragnarok would be around 40 hours in length, with almost five hours worth of cutscenes. If you take into account that 2018's God of War took around 20 hours to complete with no side missions and 50 if you wanted to 100 percent it (according to How Long To Beat), then it would make sense that the sequel would take more than 70h to fully complete if it's already double the time for a normal playthrough.
This is the boat I was in. I've considered going back and finishing '18. It was just a little too heavy on the scripted fights for my taste. Watching a battle cinematic and then suddenly needing to "mash square" is not my idea of an epic fight. lolGoW '18 was a good solid 8 for me and sounding like this is considerably better, which is good to hear. Though for a release of this magnitude, probably won't get true feedback until consumers have it.
