Ever since the surprise reveal of Insomniac Games’ Wolverine at the recent PlayStation showcase, many fans have been left wondering what the game will be like. With little more than a teaser trailer, there has not been much to go off of. Insomniac has now clarified that the game will offer a “mature tone.”
Following the reveal of Insomniac’s Wolverine, one fan took to Twitter to ask “Is [Wolverine] a big or a ‘miles morales’ size game?” following it up with “I NEED ANSWERS”. The game’s Creative Director, Brian Horton, responded, saying simply “Full size, mature tone.”
2018’s Spider-Man took roughly 17 hours to finish (according to howlongtobeat.com), not including the game’s three DLC packs. Miles Morales on the other hand takes just 7.5 hours: less than half the time. The question of how long a full game should be however is difficult to pin down.
Spider-Man is an open world game, and such titles will often be longer in length due to travel times and side-quests. Linear stories on the other hand are more likely to be shorter experiences. The recent Resident Evil Nemesis can be beaten in just 6 hours on average, and yet it was regarded as a full-sized game. Still, it is good to see that Wolverine should offer plenty of time in the shoes of Logan.
With Insomniac Games working on more child-friendly titles such as Spider-Man and Ratchet & Clank, there was a concern by some that the game might be too lighthearted in tone for a character such as Logan. Fortunately, it seems this will not be the case. The only question now is whether the game will be rated 18 or 16 – as this can have major implications on the design of the game. We recently discussed our thoughts on the reveal trailer and what we wanted to see from Wolverine – the column of which can be found HERE.
