God of War Norse Saga Could Have Been a Trilogy; File Size of the Sony PS4 Version of the Upcoming Sequel, Ragnarok and Day 1 Patch Revealed
We’re just days away from the release of God of War Ragnarok, and the excitement from fans of the series is at an all-time high.
The sequel to the hit 2018 PlayStation title will arrive on November 9 for the PS5 and PS4, and the developers at Santa Monica Studio have now started to share their experiences of working on the game.
In a new behind-the-scenes video titled “God of War Ragnarok – Shaping the Story”, Story Lead Writer Richard Gaubert claimed that the developers had a chat about potentially making the series a trilogy before work began on Ragnarok.
After a lot of back and forth, the decision was finally given to the hands of God of War Game Director Cory Barlog, who supported the idea of finishing the Norse saga with God of War Ragnarok.
With a lot of plot elements from God of War yet to be tied, it will be interesting to see how the story culminates with the upcoming sequel.
With the title set to arrive in a couple of weeks, PlayStation fans have more news about the game’s file size, with the PS4 version of the title coming in at around 118 GB. The PS5 variant will be a bit smaller, with a reported size of around 90 GB.
