Spider-Man PS4 Game's Length, According To Insomniac

You could beat Spidey's newest game in a weekend if you wanted.


Insomniac Games community director James Stevenson has revealed PS4's Spider-Man takes about 20 hours to beat. Stevenson unveiled the number when answering an inquisitive player's question on Twitter.

It's worth noting that 20 hours is the average taken from multiple play testers. Stevenson wrote that 20 hours is about how long it takes for someone to beat Spider-Man on the default difficulty and only when completing some quests and activities. Those that do more will take "a lot longer." So the 20 hour mark is for the average player who's not looking to test themselves against the game's most challenging combat or complete every optional objective.

Now Playing: PS4's Spider-Man Game Length And DLC Release Date Confirmed By Insomniac - GS News Update

To provide a comparison, most of Insomniac's games are about 10 hours long. One of the more notable exceptions is 2014's Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive--just under 20 hours on the default difficulty if you only do some of the side missions and gather a few of the collectibles. So Spider-Man is much closer in length to Sunset Overdrive than Insomniac's other titles, like Resistance 3, Fuse, or 2016's Ratchet & Clank. If you were hoping to beat Spider-Man in a weekend so you could get back to chipping at your backlog, it seems totally plausible.

Spider-Man releases exclusively for PS4 on September 7. In our Spider-Man review, we awarded the game a 9/10.
