It was shown live, it will be up 'later'.

Depends entirely how you play it. If you are just playing through normally it's 25-35 hours.

If you are actually exploring every nook and cranny then anything above and beyond 40 hours

It took me 3.5 hours on the first mission alone haha.. I went stealth, hacked and read everything I could find. Well worth it, it world seems amazingly fleshed out.

I'm about three and a half hours in and I see no sign of the first boss yet. I think it's gonna be a doozy.

Same for me, I just had to do it the stealth way. It's really fun too.

@Eversoranimus: Only way to play! But no really, it feels amazing breaking some arms and dragging their bodies into bathroom stalls.. 
 
@buft: Yea, you'll probably have a blast if you're into the fiction and all. The game is LITTERED with eBooks, newspapers and emails for you to read. I've played about 6.5-7 hours now and have yet to start my second mission.

Is there a timestamp on the saves or somewhere where you can view the time played? I made a half assed effort last night to find it with no luck.

It must be long as fuck, because I've spent six hours just trying to get to the bottom floor of the police station for that one mission. Four of those hours have been spent trying to get across the floor on the floor where the morgue actually is. There are a TON of people around, so I don't see how it's even fucking possible.

It took me around 15 hours before I was at the first boss!
