Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming this Friday, June 11. It’s one of the PS5’s biggest system-seller games, showing off the power of the new console with a more cinematic presentation and inventive DualSense features. Reviews have been glowing, but how long can you expect it to last?
The answer varies quite a bit based on how much you want to plumb its depths. One member of the GameSpot staff finished the critical path in just eight hours, before going back to finish various collectibles and sidequests. I stopped to smell the roses, waiting to finish most of the collectibles and sidequests before venturing to the final stage, for a total of roughly 14 hours. So you can expect the range of critical path vs full completion to take approximately 8-14 hours.
But there’s more to it after that. Once you’ve completed the game you open up Challenge Mode, essentially a New Game Plus, where you can carry over most of your progress to a new game. This creates an entirely separate save file, so you can still jump back into your original save to mop up any remaining quests. Challenge Mode brings over your weapons, armor pieces, and Gold Bolts.
