Earning the platinum trophy in Detroit: Become Human takes around 25 hours of playtime, according to the game’s director. However, in reality, it will likely take the average player considerably longer than that.

I asked Detroit: Become Human director David Cage after a recent hands-on demo just how long it will take to complete the game.

“We know from QA testing that if you know what to do, it takes more than 25 hours to get the platinum trophy,” he said. “That’s if you know exactly what to do. If you don’t, it may take much longer than that.”

After playing the first few hours of Detroit: Become Human, I was impressed, to say the least. One of the most striking things about my time with the game was the incredible number of paths one player can take over the course of just a single chapter, as displayed by the flowcharts that pop up at the end of every chapter.

Cage mentioned before our hands-on session that one of the main pillars of Detroit: Become Human is what the developer is calling “rubber-banding.” Much like Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain, players will control multiple characters throughout the game, and the decisions you make as one character can affect the narrative of another character. However, Detroit has exploded this mechanic where seemingly minor decisions might have a major effect down the line.

We’ll find out soon enough when Detroit: Become Human launches for PlayStation 4 on May 25th.

Detroit: Become Human will take at least 25 hours to platinum

But there's a good reason you should expect it to take you even longer than that.
