Can You Turn Off The Annoying Puzzle Hints In God of War Ragnarök?

God of War Ragnarök has a lot of puzzles, and your companions are very eager to quickly tell you the solution to them. Can you somehow shut them up?

God of War Ragnarök is an amazing game (as you can read about in our review), but it's not without its annoyances. It's not perfect, obviously not. And one thing that seems to rile up a bunch of fans of the game, are the puzzles. Actually, not the puzzles themselves, they are great. But your overly loquacious companions, who are very quick to point out the solution to you. If only they would shut up for once....

Please Mimir, Shut Up

I love the various companions in Ragnarök, but they unfortunately don't know when to shut up. This is fine, as the writing is generally so good, but during puzzles it can be aggravating. Please give me more than two seconds to figure something out, before you blurt out the solution, ok?

God of War is one of the highlights of the month, but you should also check out these other releases in November:

The game has so many different accessibility settings, including ones concerning the puzzles and their difficulty and quality. Surely, one of them must shut up my companions? Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case. Many people have theorized, that settings like 'Puzzle Timing' could affect this. But the theory was shut down by Mila Pavlin, lead UX designer for the game, who confirmed that "those settings do not impact the banter". God damn it...
