As is well known, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 expands the map to include the New York boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn, but in terms of story length the sequel emulates the first film, which was released in 2019. Developer studio Insomniac Games now confirms this in an interview with VG27/4.
Playing time – Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is about as long as the first part
How long should the story of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 be? Roughly as long as the story of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, senior game director Ryan Smith told VG24/7. According to the site Howlongtobeat, the story of the first Spider-Man game is claimed by Insomniac average 17 hours. 25.5 hours of play are given for the story and side tasks.
Total playing time possibly longer: Of course, the 17 hours of play only refer to the story. Since the sequel almost doubles the size of the open world with the two boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn and offers significantly more unlockable suits than the first part, we assume that the total playing time will be a little longer, simply because there will probably be more side activities should be on our open world to-do list.
