Game Length?

#1 Posted by bobcat1794 (279 posts) -

Has Ubisoft released any info on how many hours we can hope to get out of this? And not just overall but divided into subcategories like main story, side quests, and completionist.

I don't think developers believe that's pertinent information since it's all relative.

But I imagine it to be as long as the previous games -- 20-30 hours, depending on your style.

I remember seeing a video where they said the main story will take around 30 hours to complete.

I agree with the posts above. If it's like the past games, the ones I played 1 and 2, it should take upward to 15-20 hours. Longer if you do side quests of the like. It's going to be a nice long game.

I think tey keep saying 30 hours includig side stuff. It's the longest AC game yet (they say) so take however long you took playing AC2 and add a few hours x]

Probably around 20 hours or so, I'd guess!

It's probably roughly as long as the previous Assasssins Creed games?

Seems like a bit of an unrealistic expectation to get these numbers for a game that is not yet released.

I usually spend between 20-30 hours single player on the games, so I'd imagine it's probably around that still. I don't 100% everything though.

Probably around 20 hours like the previous games but I think revelations was shorter (at least it felt shorter) and it covered a much shorter period than brotherhood or 2 so if 3 is covering a similarly short period it may be slightly shorter.

Sounds right. I guess your ultimate playtime depends on how much you are into the optional side stuff, like hunting and skinning animals, for example.

I'm guessing that the way they were marketing it i'd at least be 30-40 hours long. Basing that guess off of what look like a more open game and with more empty space between colonies. It's to early to tell though.

@bobcat1794: We know nothing. The other games have been 25-30 hours to finish and more recent releases have had 40-60 hours of completionist content to this. This is, obviously, not including the multiplayer playtime.

I'm sure it will be a fine length. What I want to know is if I will want to play it another second at all after I beat it. I have never known the AC series to have replay value at all.

replaying the whole game in a new save usualy isnt a draw, but replaying missions for 100% synch can be fun if theres a nice reward

if its longer than AC2 then it should be crazy long.

AC2 took me like 45 hours to beat, granted i dicked around alot, but hey, its assassins creed, you're SUPPOSED to dick around alot

I don't care about length of the side content as long as it's high quality, like the Seals/Brotherhood of Romulus stuff from II and Brotherhood. I presume Revelations had something similar?

#18 Posted by deskp (453 posts) -

@DonutFever: I AC3 you will be collecting pieces to a map or notes from captain kidd(?) in romulus-like linear gameplay places.

#19 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2690 posts) -

probably a little over 20 hours, like how long every other AC game has been.

#20 Posted by BBQBram (2294 posts) -

If I can spend around 35 hours completing it and doing everything it has to offer, then it will have scratched my AC itch to satisfaction. But I hope it goes beyond that and suprises me in some ways. Oh well.

The last ones were quite long. I never did finish Brotherhood. I assume creed 3 shall be long as well.

I remember reading some info about an interview with developers, I wish I could find the video for you guys. They said that in cutscenes alone is about 2 hours. And I don't remember previous cutscenes being all that long in previous games. So this leads me to think that this is going to be longer than the other games. That would be awesome.
