God of War


 

Few preview events feature demos as long as the one for God of War, and yet the recent trial only covered a minuscule fraction of the total game.

Producer, host, and industry bigwig Geoff Keighley was one of the participants in God of War‘s recent preview demo, and based on Keighley’s subsequent tweets, he loved every minute of it. The demo ran players two and a half to three hours, and as Keighley learned, this only makes up approximately five percent of the experience.

During last year’s PlayStation Experience, game director Cory Barlog revealed that the game would run players 25 to 35 hours. If a two to three hour session of the game is approximately five percent of everything, the game could wind up being even longer than this for some players. Assuming that percentage is exact, the game could end up being 40 to 60 hours in length for some playthroughs.

As for the preview demo, it was packed to the brim with narrative and action alike. The developers want to keep some of the more notable story moments under wraps until launch, but fans can learn a lot about God of War‘s new direction in combat from EGM’s hands-on preview.

God of War is launching April 20th, exclusively on PlayStation 4. The future of the series may not be set in stone, but based on recent developer comments, the upcoming game will be the first of several to take place in Norse myth.

God of War’s recent three-hour demo wasn’t even one-tenth of the game

If this statistic is accurate, the trail ahead for God of War players will be very long indeed.
