In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Ubisoft Details Assassin Creed IV's Present Day Content, Only 20-25 Minutes Of Play Time Required

Posted on Tuesday, October 8 @ 06:51:38 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


If you don't want to bother yourself with the crazy sci-fi elements in the next Assassin's Creed and just want to live out the life of a pirate, you'll be pleased to know that the present day content isn't a major focus this time around.

Over on the official Ubisoft blog, the studio revealed that you're only going to be required to play about 20-25 minutes of the game in present day if you want to get through the entire story. Those, however, that want to get the full experience and learn more about the ancestry of Desmond Miles, will have a good 3-5 hours worth of content to sink their teeth into.

In total, if you were to do everything in the present day – find everything, hack every computer, access every room – it’s a solid three to five hours. For the main path – the stuff you’re required to do – it’s somewhere between 20 and 25 minutes. You leave the Animus five times during the game’s main path and each time you’re there for about three to four minutes.

We pretty much tried to boil it down to its most core essence because we know there are people out there who really don’t like the present day, and that’s okay. You don’t have to like it, but it’s part of the brand. For the people who like the present day and are big fans, we put in a lot of fan service and a lot of fun optional content. You get to choose if you want it or not.

Sounds like a solid solution to me. Do you enjoy the present day content in the Assassin's Creed games, or would rather they just strip all that away entirely and stick to the historical stuff? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
