Assassin's Creed IV will be no slouch when it comes to in-game content. According to Ubisoft, the main storyline will take approximately 20 hours to complete and those who want to explore everything else will get another 60 additional hours or so of playtime.
Lead game designer Jean-Sebastien Decant discussed the game's length with OPM, telling the outlet, "We have so much content it’s quite crazy to say it. The main story is at least 20 hours. In the open world you have stuff to do for at least 50 or 60 hours."
Decant then went on to add, "We really tried to increase the feeling of adventure. At the same time it has to be easy to use so we added a number of teleports, in fact every [objective] you do becomes a teleport. So as you soon as you win somewhere, you can send people there."
That sounds like a whole lot of game. Black Flag launches on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 October 29th, and next-gen hardware and PC in November.
