God of War III will feature 10 plus hours of gameplay according to Sony Santa Monica’s director of technology. Although we know “10 plus hours” is an ambiguous description of gameplay length, it’s certainly shorter than the previously reported 15 to 20 hours.
The game’s director Stig Asmussen was originally quoted in Hobby Consolas as stating that God of War III will “last about the same time that lasted for the previous two chapters (15 to 20 hours depending on difficulty level).” Now there was always something fishy about that quotation, since the last two games were closer to the 10 to 15 hour mark, so the bracketed addition could have been a presumptuous comment made by a Hobby Consolas’ editor, rather than a statement made by Asmussen himself.
This brings us to Christer Ericson’s, director of technology at Sony Santa Monica, latest tweet:
“And since people asked: #GoW3 has seamless loading. No install, followed by 10+ hours of play uninterrupted by load screens!”
[UPDATE] – Ericson has responded by claiming that he is not commenting on game length, but simply the fact that there will be no loading throughout, hence the ambiguity of 10 plus hours. Nevertheless, expect a game spanning as long as the original two entries in the franchise.
