God of War III to last 15-20 hours depending on the difficulty

Previous reports have only said that God of War III will be over 10 hours long, but now we understand that the PlayStation 3 game will possibly stretch to double that depending on the difficulty.

In the latest issue of Hobby Consolas, God of War III features in stunning new screenshots showing never before seen enemies and new environments. You can check out these screenshots exclusively in our God of War III gallery. There’s also more information in the feature, with this latest little ditty on the game’s playthrough length.

The game’s director Stig Asmussen told Hobby Consolas in response to a question on game length:

It’s a difficult question to answer right now because we are still “testing” and may change, but I imagine it would last about the same time that lasted for the previous two chapters (15 to 20 hours depending on difficulty level).

Now that’s what we want to here!

  1. developers always say this.Then the actual game is 10 hours at most

  2. Yeah I agree, probably 10-12 hours at the most. They already stated that it would be longer than the first and shorter than the second.

  3. 15 to 20 houres of awesomnes rubbed in my face for just 40 euros
    sounds like a good deal

  4. It better not be 10hrs of cut seen 5hrs of game play (cough)MGS4

  5. 5hr gameplay 10 hrs of cutscenes? Try 3 hours of gameplay for mgs4, and people had the cheek to take digs at ODST for it’s length * sigh * i hate fanboys

  6. There’s about 10 hours of gameplay in MGS4 and 9 hours of cutscenes.

    3 hours of MGS4 provided more quality than all the Halo releases to date jammed into one.

    And you hating fanboys, is like a vegetarian who hates vegetables.

    Yeah, even if MGS4 had only 30 seconds of actual gameplay it would still have been better than the half – assed Halo games that involve giving a REACHaround to an alien while citing the pledge of alleigance. In MGS4 you are sucked in to a story that can easily rival anything to come out of Hollywood, in Halo you are given a gun and told to “Shoot aliens for the high score.”, what a joke. It’s no wonder the last 2 Halo games have done so poorly on Metacritic, poor scores for a poor attempt at a game, stupid fanboys.

    Anyway, what was this post about? Oh, right, GOW 3. GOW is awesome, GOW 3 will be awesome. Playing GOW 3 for 15 – 20 hours will be awesome. I will buy. 🙂

  9. That’s a little unfair on Halo, while they don’t live up to my personal favorite Half-Life 2, they are still good series of games that continue to get better.

    Also, in my opinion, Metal Gear Solid 4 had such a good and cinematic storyline but the game play really lacked, games such as Splinter Cell have raised the bar for what is expected with stealth and MGS seems to be doing Limbo underneath with some real archaic elements.

  10. LOL ODST was far too much like H3, which was too much like H2

    although Halo 1 and 2 were awesome, their time is over.

    MGS4 on the other side was phenomenal the first playthough, but all in all it merely ranks 3rd of my favorite MGS game

    But then again, MGS4 is far more about the story and cutscenes. One cannot compare those two games

  11. I am saying about 10 hours. That is about what it took for me to beat the first so I am going with something around there. Probably less since it is on a new system and had to build the engine before the game.

    So actually 8 maybe.

  12. MGS 4 is like 8 – 12 hours, first time, if you’re not pro

  13. 15- 20 hours, plus 3 hours of videos and my ultimate edition documentary O_O i can not wait for this game

  14. That’s a decent length play through. Take into account that this game WILL be played through more than once.

  15. that isnt too bad….that is about MGS4 (first playthough) but with much less cut scenes!

  16. ^^
    and much more action!

  17. Yo guys. I bought GOW3 yesterday and i’ve been playing for 18 1/2 hours now on God mode…in the mean time fighting Zeus and waiting for him to die!
