God of War Ragnarok story

In PlayStation’s official blog post, Santa Monica Studio shared some details about the story of God of War Ragnarok. The story picks up a few years after the events of God of War, which will test the survival skills of Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir. The developer says, “While the last game built an enormous amount of trust and understanding between father and son, there is still a great deal of complexity in their interactions – especially after the revelation of Atreus’ Giant heritage and the hidden prophecy only Kratos saw.” The sequel will explore the relationship between Kratos and Atreus with higher stakes.

PlayStation’s official God of War Ragnarok listing has revealed the story synopsis, which reads, “Fimbulwinter is well underway. Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. The threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer. Kratos and Atreus must choose between their own safety and the safety of the realms.”

Recent leaks suggest that God of War Ragnarok’s main story could be 20 hours long, including almost 3 and a half hours of cinematic cutscenes and 16 and a half hours of gameplay. Besides these, the game is expected to have 20 hours of side quests, including an hour of cutscenes and 19 hours of gameplay. This means God of War Ragnarok is said to be at least 40 hours long.
