God of War Ragnarok’s PlayStation 4 File Size Is 118.5 GB

Ragnarok is coming and it's bringing all the weight with it.

God of War Ragnarok is the upcoming sequel to the 2018-released God of War, and it will make landfall in less than three weeks. Ahead of the first-person thriller’s release though, a Twitter user has managed to download the game on their end, thereby revealing its 118.509 GB file size.

God of War Ragnarok’s anticipation has been through the roof ever since its initial reveal on the PlayStation Showcase. This is the game that’s going to set the bar for PlayStation exclusives high enough for other IPs to follow as if the likes of The Last of Us and The Ghost of Tsushima haven’t done that already.

The Rundown: 

  • God of War Ragnarok‘s file size on the PlayStation 4 is revealed to be 118.509 GB. 
  • The individual involved has also dropped some comments on the performance of Ragnarok on the PlayStation 4, which go on to show that the experience remains to be vastly similar to the 2018 God of War. 
  • The graphical quality of the forthcoming title seems to be more revamped than its predecessor.

In relatively recent times, NoeL — a Brazillian game tester — has taken to Twitter to share an interesting piece of information. The next installment in the God of War franchise is due for release by the 3rd of November, and fans are curious with regard to the file size of the action-adventure title. 

Thanks to the individual in question though, we might just have a clear idea as to what the size of God of War Ragnarok is going to look like on the PlayStation 4. NoeL has posted the following to Twitter, saying, “This is the official size of God Of War Ragnarok on PS4. I won’t release spoilers, I’ve waited so long for this moment.”

The 118.5 GB file size is a major step up as compared to the first exclusively released God of War for the PlayStation 4 console whose base game installation size was somewhere around 35 GB. With all the patches and the updates though, God of War 2018’s file size on the PlayStation 4 today is about 46 GB.

I blame Fat Thor,” says one concerned Redditor. “Takes 40 GB just by himself,” adds another. Anyhow, we still cannot confirm the file size of God of War Ragnarok on the PlayStation 5, but rumors circulating around seem to conform to the 84 GB figure. 

Moreover, apart from just the revelation of the file size of God of War Ragnarok, game tester NoeL has commented on the game’s performance, which is “so far so good.” When asked about how the title runs on the PlayStation 4 and whether the graphics look any better than the 2018 God of War, NoeL had the following to say.

We might be in for a real treat if Ragnarok features a scale of gameplay similar to the transition of the first God of War in the series to God of War 2. Since the precursor of the title was already crafted, thereby taking the hard part out of the way, it surely can’t be easy living up to people’s expectations when you’re at this colossal level.

We believe that God of War Ragnarok could seriously benefit from the nemesis system, so let’s gauge whether the upcoming action-adventure title does turn out to feature any semblance of that functionality. In other news, here are the 10 big changes from the prequel in God of War Ragnarok.
