Sony isn’t revealing other information about God of War: Ragnarok for now

Despite the fact that the game is set to release next month, there is still no word from Sony about the official file size or other details about the game. However, a user called PlayStationSize on Twitter revealed a few weeks ago that they were able to spot a download page for God of War: Ragnarok on the PS4.

  • The download page indicates that the file size of the game will be over 90 GB. It looks like this may be the size without any updates or patches added to the game
  • Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that players on the PS5 will have the same file size. Each game’s file size varies depending on what console you’re using
  • It’s possible that the game will have this large file size considering the fact that we’ll be getting 40 hours’ worth of content

As of now, God of War: Ragnarok has not gotten its dedicated State of Play event yet. It’s impossible for Sony not to host a State of Play showcase for the upcoming game considering how many people are looking forward to it. That being said, it’s safe to assume that we’ll get a State of Play showcase before the month ends.
