Marvel’s Spider-Man: this is how long it will take you to play through the game


Few would doubt Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of this year’s most eagerly anticipated PS4 exclusives, and might very well end up being one of 2018’s top games too.

This is despite the fact that earlier Spider-Man games such as 2007’s effort left quite a bit to be desired, leaving franchise fans with a sore taste in their mouths.

But developer Insonmiac’s Spider-Man game, which is about to be released worldwide in a couple of days, might be the Spidey game fans have been waiting for, boasting spectacular action and visuals as seen in the game’s trailers thus far.

The game will also be long enough for most, as according to game makers Insomniac it should take the average user about 20 hours to plough through the game on normal difficulty. This is according to community director James Stevenson, who told a fan as much on Twitter (via GameSpot).

Of course, as is the case with most games these days Marvel’s Spider-Man has plenty of optional activities and side quests to complete too, meaning your total playing time might be a bit more if you decide to do more than just finish the main storyline.

It’s unlikely, though, that this will be as long as other upcoming games such as Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which according to the people behind the game could be the longest entry in the series yet, but at least Marvel’s Spider-Man does appear to be more substantial than earlier Insomniac games such as Ratchet & Clank, which took about 10 hours to complete.

Either way, with Spider-Man’s upcoming release it looks like there’s still plenty in store for gamers in what remains of 2018, including big-name releases like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which will be hitting shelves later this year.
