The game's associate producer has confirmed that this is a very long game, and the first area alone will take around 10 hours.
Wow, I've played entire games start to finish in less time! This game is going to be epic.
They said the same thing about the first game but I finished Darksiders 1 in 30+ hours. I am expecting the same thing again (but I won't be disappointed if it's not the case because I know it will be an amazing title). If you want platinum it's almost 40 hours of gameplay.
30+ hours is pretty good for a hack & slash game, i finish most of them in less, around 12 to 15 hours, i started dark siders a while back but didnt finish it.
@Tr10wn - You really should finish it, the ending especially is quite awesome. I've downloaded again from PS+ and have been considering trying to platinum it.
It took you that long to beat the first, Im thinking it only took me about 20 hrs tops, and I play on the hardest settings. Quick thought is anyone going to play this on Wii U when it will have been out for months already on 360 and PS3.
The one and only problem I had with Darksiders is that its hard mode isn't hard at all. It's just as easy as, well, easy mode. Lol. I hope that changes with Darksiders 2.
Nah they never touted the first game as being that long to be fair.
Amazing! There are 4 areas and over 40+ side quests, so we're looking at a 35-40 hours game right here.

Pretty decent I suppose.
Well, with most games nowadays being compared to the lowest standard of single player lengths, mainly Call of Duty and its 5 hour campaign, you've got to give them credit. Especially for a hack and slash.
Nice. I do not think game-time makes a game better or worst, but it is always great to have something awesome that lasts.
eh i will believe it when i play it.
Play the first darksiders. You'll understand the length and scale.
That's what she said.
Can't wait for this game. First one was good and I imagine part 2 is even better
Yep you said it best, first one for me easily qualified as a "good" game at the very least. I think the devs were still getting their footing during the first one and the second will only be better.
I liked the first game but never finished it. I got as far as the black throne how far am I to the end? Did they fix the problem of the console resettling when you quit the game? I got the game free with Playstation Plus if I play that will I encounter the same problem?
I hope there is a longer game than the last game.
If this is true, then i wonder how much worlds their will be and how long they are cause that right there is already long enough for a full game.
There are 4 areas, each with a different look. I think they needed to create a bigger world as there are now side quests and towns to visit where you can sell loot that is dropped. Basically it has really become an RPG which is great.
I never finished the first one because of a glitch, which didn't allow me to go past. I may have to pick up the first game again, just so I know the story fully for the sequel.
What glitch? I'm about to give the first one a try on PS3, how do I avoid said game breaking glitch?
I can't remember where it is, but it's not too far into the game, but you're in a train station full of water, you empty the area, and you need to put the trains on the correct tracks to progress, and if you don't move them over enough, or move them over too far, then you can't progress. That's what happened to me, and when I did it, autosave kicked in, and overwritten my save data.
Thanks for the heads up! I just snagged Revelations at Bestbuy online for $9.99 this last weekend and to my delight when I picked it up, it was the one with the first game on disc. SCORE!!!
When a game developer says his game is 10 hours long,you should always knock about 3 hours off that time.I know he's only talking about the first world,btw.
With the way this game is shaping up it has every chance of being GoTY.
this game might just save thq..
in terms of area = walking, walking endless walking... but where are quests?
So freaking excited for this one! Loved the first, got it for $5 on steam, think I may have to support the devs on this and buy it at launch, THQ makes some awesome games and we gotta show them some love!
