During the keynote presentation of PSX 2017, God of War director Cory Barlog had a quick discussion about the game's progress. Despite the lack of a new trailer or gameplay footage, Barlog did break down how long playtesters were taking to get through the whole game:

We are in the play testing phase. In fact, we just finished up a playtest. For the last four or five playlists we've been clocking in a total playtime that is somewhere in the arena of 25-35 hours.

Obviously, Barlog is talking about game that's unpolished, so keep that in mind, but that 10 hour discrepancy is interesting. Is it just a matter of playtesters grappling with the game's difficulty or maybe there are side quests and optional activities to complete?

Speculate away, readers, and let us know what you think in the comments.
