Watchmen Trophy List Hints at Game’s Duration

Submitted by on Tuesday, 27 January 2009One Comment

secondwatchmenteaserLooking forward to the first episode of Watchmen: The End is Nigh released to the PSN in March? We sure are.

We’ve spoken about how players will get to play as Rorschach and Nite Owl in the game but the episodic delivery nature of the title has had us wondering for some time now: “Just how long is each chapter?”

That question may now be answered as, thanks to our friends over at, the trophy list offers a glimpse of just how long the first instalment will be.

The answer, in minutes, is after the jump.

Yes, we said minutes. Just like how Grand Theft Auto IV rewards players with finishing the game in under thirty hours, Deadline Games have also introduced a time-based challenge to all those who answer the Watchmen call.

Bronze trophy “Turbo” is described as “Complete the game in less than 80 minutes, in one session without restarting from a checkpoint.” Though we don’t advocate rushing through games (especially on a pretentious trophy run) and suggest that you should savour the Watchmen experience, the fact that the game can be completed in 80 minutes infers that, conservatively, the episode is somewhere between two and three hours in duration.

Of course, we could be way off, and we’re are sure that those of you who wish to be fully immersed in the Watchmen universe could spend days playing the first episode. Or weeks. OK, maybe not weeks.

Here’s the full trophy list for those who crave all knowledge (and are rationing their mouse clicks today). Look away now if you’re one of those crazy people who believe trophy lists are spoiler material.

  • Untouchable    [Bronze Trophy]
    Go unharmed for an entire level, without restarting from a checkpoint.
  • Turbo    [Bronze Trophy]
    Complete the game in less than 80 minutes, in one session without restarting from a checkpoint.
  • Vigilante    [Bronze Trophy]
    Eliminate 20 bad guys in 101 seconds.
  • Strong Arm   [Bronze Trophy]
    Knock 100 people over, by throwing other people into them.
  • Retaliator    [Bronze Trophy]
    Perform 200 counter attacks.
  • Exterminator    [Bronze Trophy]
    Perform 250 finishing moves.
  • Shield    [Bronze Trophy]
    Dodge or block 25 incoming attacks.
  • Psycho   [Silver Trophy]
    Complete the game in Rorschach mode.
  • Hero    [Silver Trophy]
    Complete the game in Nite Owl mode.
  • Thief    [Silver Trophy]
    Find all abilities and pick-ups in Rorschach mode.
  • Detective    [Silver Trophy]
    Find all abilities and pick-ups in Nite Owl mode.
  • Teamwork    [Gold Trophy]
    Complete the game in co-op mode.

Pricing of the game has yet to be finalised. How much would you pay for this bite-sized morsel of Watchmen gaming goodness? Let us know in the comments.
