The fiercest Mjölnir wielders will probably have to jog through “Ragnarok” repeatedly in order to get their fix. The original “God of War” reboot also snubbed fans of further content despite long-lingering requests, so it’s safe to say that Sony Santa Monica won’t easily cave to pressure of the hot response to its game of the year contender. And if you know game developers, you know that statements like “don’t count on it” and “no current plans” pretty much spell doom for any potential to the contrary.
Thankfully, there’s a ton to dig into with “God of War Ragnarok,” featuring an even bigger world than the original with much more room for exploration. All of it is backdropped by a grossly engaging story that allows you to play as both Kratos and Atreus. The main campaign is meaty on its own with reports suggesting there are 25 hours worth of gameplay there, and many more are available through side quests and collections.
