Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag developer Ubisoft has suggested that the entire game, core and exploration, can take up to 80 hours to complete.
Lead Game Designer, Jean-Sebastien Decant, stated,
“…20 hours to finish the main story, 50 or 60 hours open world stuff.”
Decant added when it come to the Black Flag’s scale,
“I wouldn’t be able to give you any numbers, but what I can tell you is we have three big cities, compared to the other games, there’s three huge cities and then fifteen unique locations – like continents – throughout the world, and then lots of [islands where] you can find buildings, stuff like that. The size of the map is like fifteen, twenty minutes, if you were just to sail without stopping, so that’s huge.
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.”
In case you missed it earlier, you can now listen to the Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag soundtrack on Music Unlimited.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is scheduled for release an Oct. 24 for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, followed by PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
