Can you guess how big Spider-Man Miles Morales will be?
After the announcement at the PS5 event, there have been questions regarding its status as a standalone game and how much big Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be?
Sony and Insomniac have confirmed the upcoming PlayStation 5 launch title, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, at the PS5 event. Now Miles finally can tell his own story to fans. Also, Insomniac Creative Director Brian Horton gave us a bit more insight into our beloved game.
According to the announcement, Insomniac Games has confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be about half the length of the original game. In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Horton talked about how big the game will be, and it’s been in development since development on the first Spider-Man concluded. He made a direct comparison to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which was an expansion to Uncharted 4 that ended up being big enough to warrant it’s own game and experience.
More specifically, The Lost Legacy clocked in at about 7 to 10 hours of playtime and was about half the size of Uncharted game it was based on
“We know a lot of you want to know how big this game is,” Horton wrote. “Our team at Insomniac has been working incredibly hard to bring you a fantastic Miles Morales adventure since we concluded development on Marvel’s Spider-Man. You’ll experience a full story arc with Miles, one that’s more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of the overall scope. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an important, heartfelt, emotional, and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe. And we hope it will be for you as well.”
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy takes above 7 hours to get through its main campaign, and if you explore a bit and hunt for extra content, you’ll log around 8 and a half hours. The sweet spot for Miles would probably be 10 hours, especially since it will easily be one of the most hyped early PS5 releases.
The comparison to Lost Legacy also gives us a price point to consider, as Lost Legacy costs $39.99. We’re not sure if next-generation games will move in price point at all. The bet is= t on $39.99 for the price of Miles Morales’ standard edition.
