I was wondering if anyone knew, or had any idea how long the game will be. I would love it to be around 40 hours or so, but games these days are lucky if they make it to 12. I hope this isn't one of those games that turn out to be really short and doesn't have much of a replay value because of this.

According to recent interviews, the beta testers got through it....straight missions, no side quests, no messing around, in a little under 20 hours.

with side quests and all that stuff
a little more than 40h.
Thats not counting the countless hours of fun you can have by just running away from guards http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Jade said to do the bare minimum in this game, it will be 16-18 hours. To do everything, it'll take over 40. That of course doesn't include just running around doing nothing related to the story.

I feel ashamed. Now I will not buy AC. Instead, I will sit in a dark corner and watch YouTube videos of people playing.

Oh hell yes. I've been waiting for a long single-player game. Most stealth games are pretty short.

You've got that wrong..

It was around 18 hours without doing any of the sidequests, played by someone who knew what they were doing.

and around 30 if you do everything for the main story, not including Flags, Killing Templars etc etc

18 hours is somewhat long. That would take an average joe about a week or two and a more serious gamer 2 to 3 days if he just wanted to win.

The current record among the game testers for finishing the game is 8 hours, with bare minimum work to finish the game.

Otherwise, it could be as long as you want it to be. Especially with the side quests.

How long could finding 420 flags take?

I'm going to spend so many hours exploring/sidequesting/screwing around in this game... can't even imaging how long it'll take me to beat it. @_@

Does anyone knows what happens when you finish the last mission?
Do you think you can carry on playing?

There was one guy that we stuck the fat "LIAR" stamp onto who said that the game ends like PoP after you finish the last mission. He said for "specific reasons" to do with the story.

Now I say that that is a LIE. NOT true.
Bad idea from Ubi to kill off the players from playing their game some more... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Plus you have so many collectables which just adds to the reasons to keep this game alive after the last mission.

But still, you never know... you sadly never know... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

You can play after your beat the game, asked Patrice at the Secret Assembly.

Thankyou so much. I have been really bothered about this. I would buy it non the less but games with an open ending are the best for me. Grim good point about the collectables, I am sure there are achievments to get them all so I guess it would be kind of stupid to have to start a new game to get them all.
