Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

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.
