Forspoken PS5 PlayStation

Forspoken is a title that has been getting a lot of press lately, some of it good, some of it not so much. The title is being developed by Luminous Productions, of Final Fantasy XV fame, and is set to launch on 24th January on PS5.

In an interview with Spanish-language website 3DJuegos, and as relayed by MP1st, Forspoken co-director Takeshi Terada has revealed that players can expect an average playthrough of Forspoken to take approximately 30-40 hours to complete.

That's specifically to beat the main story, and Terada mentions that Forspoken's endgame will feature plenty of secondary missions and extra exploration to keep players busy. Of course, we won't know for sure until we get our hands on the game to know for sure, as playtime is a tricky metric to nail down.

One cannot discount the marketing spin that developers and publishers often put on playtime, either. Never forget the outrageous claim that Dying Light 2 would take "500 hours" to complete, which was almost immediately walked back to "if you want it to".

What do you think of Forspoken's stated playtime? Are you looking forward to getting lost in the world of Athia? Let yourself be transported to a magical world found only in the comments section below.
