Sucker Punch Production’s Ghost of Tsushima has been out for a week now, and the game has been stellar so far. It’s a large game through and through, but is it enough for those looking for a long experience?
Despite launching a week ago, a lot of players have already finished Ghost of Tsushima. That doesn’t mean that the game is short. In fact, many comment that the game it considerably long. Here’s how long it takes to beat the game according to How Long To Beat.
A lengthy game
How Long To Beat calculates the average time players beat a game depending on their playstyles. It’s one of the most accurate systems when it comes to calculating a game’s length as the data itself comes from those that played the game.
As per the website, players will be able to finish the game’s main campaign in about 20 hours. Considering that there’s no leveling system, players can actually finish the game without grinding.
If players want to beat the main campaign and it’s extra side quests, it will take around 36 hours to beat. As there are many Tales of Tsushima to complete, it should not be surprising that the game takes this long to finish. Most players go for this playstyle as finishing the side quests rewards them with special bonuses.
For completionists, Ghost of Tsushima takes around 52 and a half hours to beat. This is most likely because there are a lot of collectibles in the game. Completionist playstyles also take into account the amount of time it takes for players to acquire the game’s platinum trophy on the PlayStation 4.
What’s the best way to play?
The best way for players to enjoy the game is by doing the main story and the side quests scattered throughout Tsushima. This lets players experience all of the story and lore elements that the game has to offer.
If players are trophy hunters, then the game’s 50+ hour completionist playthrough is more than enough to get the game’s Platinum Trophy. Of course, this is going to be a challenge in itself as the collectibles are aplenty.
Ghost of Tsushima is a masterpiece. Players should get the most out of the game and its world by playing it over and over again. Even if players have finished all of the side quests and the main campaign, the world is still worth exploring.
