Marvel's Wolverine will indeed be a full-length game.

One of the biggest announcements coming out of PlayStation Showcase was easily the surprise that was Marvel’s Wolverine. Isomniac Games and Marvel did well to have a major presence during the PlayStation Showcase that also contained a God of War trailer, and quite possibly steal the show.

The trailer for Marvel’s Wolverine, however brief, was able to drum up a whole lot of excitement and possibly hint at a much more gritty tone than Isomniac and Marvel’s Spider-Man. The possibility of a shared universe is now extremely likely as this will be Insomniac’s second Marvel project after Spider-Man.

While the fanbase at large is extremely optimistic about Insomniac Games and Wolverine, there was also the concern that perhaps the upcoming game would not be full-length. Brian Horton announced his role as Creative Director on Marvel’s Wolverine on Twitter, and also went on to quell fan’s concerns regarding the game’s size and tone.

Marvel’s Wolverine creative director confirms the game will be a full-length title

Brian Horton confirmed that the game will indeed be a full-length game, and depending on one’s definition of full-sized or full-length, it could be an  8-10 hour experience – or even 12 on the longer side of things. The game is more than likely to be a single-player experience, and whether or not it is an open-world game a la Spider-Man remains to be seen.

Much of the concern surrounding the game was that it would either take a sanitized approach to the tone and ditch the blood-and-gore style action that is characteristic of Wolverine stories. However, Brian confirmed that the game will indeed have a “mature tone”, and as to what that means is entirely up for speculation.

On one hand, it could either mean wanton blood-and-gore presentation and gameplay or a much more serious and nuanced story that has a much more mature tone, meaning something like, say Logan.
