New God of War game will be much longer than previous instalments

The upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, God of War, will stand apart from the series previous installments in a number of ways. The most important difference is that unlike the previous titles, 2018's God of War will revolve around a deeply personal story; that of Kratos and his son. Atreus. Kratos will also face the Nordic gods and not the Greek gods, it will be single-player only, combat will also be different, and it will have role-playing elements.

Another important difference will be the length of the game - it will be more than twice the size of all previous mainline God of War games. During this weekend's PlayStation Experience, God of War Creative Director, Cory Barlog, announced that the game could take between 25 to 35 hours to complete. It's the sequel to 2010's God of War III which took around ten hours to complete.

Barlog stated that players should treat the game like a "tour bus" and that there will be different "paths" to take through the world. God of War is not an open-world game, but given the longer play time and Barlog's comment, I assume exploration will play a big role.

Sony hasn't yet confirmed an official release date for God of War, but according to a recent leak, it will release on 22 March 2018.
