Marvel's Spider-Man's platinum trophy completion rate already stands at more than 10%, so pretty high for a PlayStation exclusive.
Marvel's Spider-Man has been the expected hit of 2018. It was the best selling game on the platform in September and the fastest selling PS4 game of the year so far. There is clearly a lot of overlap between gamers and fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and someone has finally taken advantage of that in a major way.
One of the main things that sets Spider-Man apart from pretty much every game being created right now is its throwback feel. Not the incredible graphics and the awesome gameplay, of course, but the fact that no aspect of the game is online or multiplayer. It harks back to a time where game developers had to focus on story. That's why the game has been so popular and is the aspect of it that is being hailed the biggest success.
If you're yet to play Spider-Man or complete the story, then don't worry we won't spoil it. If you have, or you are at least part of the way through, you will know how gripping and great it is. That's one of the reasons why despite the game only being available for a little more than a month at the time of typing this, 10.6% of players have already attained the game's platinum trophy.
For those unfamiliar with PlayStation's trophy system, every game has one platinum trophy. The only way to attain it is by winning all of the other trophies available in the game. For more than one in ten of all players to have done that already, that's pretty impressive. Twinfinite listed some of its closest PS4 exclusive competitors: Horizon Zero Dawn on 6.9%, God Of War at 5.5%, and Until Dawn all the way down at 2.9%.
Despite those comparisons, Spider-Man by no means has the highest platinum trophy completion rate on the platform. According to Game Informer, Undertale currently sits at more than double on 21.4%. It's also not a number that will necessarily continue to rise, although it is at the moment. Yes, more and more people will earn that platinum trophy in the coming months, but more players will join the game. It may rise for a while but eventually, that number should flatten out.
