Assassin's Creed 4 Main Campaign To Last Around 15-25 Hours

GB: "We caught up with creative director Jean Guesdon and asked him about the length of the main campaign in Assassin's Creed 4." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Might be alright. Looks a little more interesting that previous installments.
I wonder how many missions involve: "pick up milk" and "deliver said milk to..." aaand repeat.
Ares84HU  +   864d ago
Well most open world games consist of that. Go there, do this, come back.

Do you have a better idea??

I know, I, I sure a hell don't.

i remember they said the same thing for assassin creed 3 and look how that came out

Well the first 6 hours of AC3 happened to be a glorified tutorial. I hope the full world opens up to us much sooner with AC4.

And yes the missions were kinda repetitive, especially the side missions. But some of the main missions were horribly designed. Never forget the broken final chase sequence.

Sounds about right

So, about 12 hours without rushing things.

Dont know why people always disagree with these sort of comments, when its most likely right.

Anyone remember this:

It said that AC3's story was 20 hours and the side missions were also 20 hours...40 hours in total lol Not even close, I finished AC3's story (not rushed) in about 13 hours

The last time I experienced this was with The Last of Us. (To protect myself from Disagrees: TLoU is my game of the Year thus far)
Naughty Dog promised 15 hours of playtime. Without rushing through, trying to get as many collectibles as I could, I got to just a little more than 12 hours. I'm not even very good at shooters. I don't know how they gather that data but the average gamer, such as me, definitely is a little faster than that. This seems to be the case with almost all story-driven games.

SWEET, I hope the side quests are as interesting as the homestead missions in AC3, those provided soooo much character development, shame people missed out on them

If it's anything like ACIII, then I'm not interested. That game was boring as heck, even more so than in Persona 3's Tartarus, which just consists of floors that barely look any different throughout the whole game, and doing the same thing over and over again. (Which I still enjoyed, mind you)

I don't care how a long a game is. If you get bored for more than 5 hours (yeah, I only played ACIII for 7 hours because 5/7 of those hours, I got bored), that's it. I'm done with the game.

AC3 wasn't that bad. It wasn't up to par with the series, but there was some fun to be had. At the very least you had the tree running, as an addition to buildings, the naval combat was a nice sideshow.
Eamon  +   864d ago
Tree running was good. The frontier was great. The towns, not so great. Unlike Jerusalem or Damascus or Venice or Florence or Rome or Constantinople (all of which are old cities with beautiful architecture), the American towns were glorified settlements.

They said assassin creed 3 was going to be 20-30 hours long. but i beat that shit in around 10-13 hours with all side missions completed. so ill wait to the price drops in a few months before i start thinking about picking the game up.
Excalibur  +   864d ago
As with COD, I just can't do another AC game, over-saturation has burned me out on them.
anticlimax  +   864d ago
It's still a while before it's out. By that time, you'll be ready for it. (But will your wallet be?)
Excalibur  +   863d ago
I doubt it, I've only made it half way through Revelations and haven't even popped the wrapper on AC 3 and I've had it since last Christmas.

Same with the COD series, I've been playing less and less of it's over all features and only finished 1/2 of the last one, I just got this feeling like I had already played this and quickly lost interest.

Guess you're one of those people who doesn't like replaying games either then. That's fine.
