While this question is, for once, quite straightforward to answer, there is always going to be some deviation based on your skill level and the difficulty you play at. If you're playing on Rookie Explorer, which means you literally cannot die, you'll probably breeze through the game a little quicker than someone playing on Renegade Legend, the hardest difficulty.

As long as you don't get stuck at any point, the Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart length is around 10 hours, give or take. There are 25 gold bolts, 10 spybots, and 9 CraiggerBears to find though, so if you hunt down all of these, you can add an hour or two onto the time – same goes for if you complete all of the challenges available in the Battleplex Arena.

When you beat the game for the first time however, you unlock Challenge Mode, which is essentially new game plus. In this, you restart the story with all your existing weapons and upgrades already unlocked, but you can go through the game again and purchase the omega versions of all your weapons once they're at level five. There are also two brand new weapons in this mode only – the Pixelizer and Bouncer – which you need to purchase to get the trophy for buying all weapons. Unfortunately there's no secret ending or anything else to find by completing Challenge Mode though, so you're not missing out on too much if you decide to pass on it.

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
