So I decided to make a thread for the actual campaign and side missions for the game. I just found this article and I didn't know where to place it. Sorry if this thread is unneeded but apparently the main campaign will take 15 - 20 hours to complete whilst everything including side quests will take around 100 hours. Now that is a long game!

cut that length by a third and now you have an accurate gauge of what the length really will be

Sounds like a fair amount. Would prefer 30-40 hours of main campaign but you can only see so much of Paris I suppose.

I am happy. The one thing that really appealed to me about AC 4 was the incredibly large amount of activities you could do when you werent playing the story

I suppose gameplay hours aren't that big of a deal since most of the time you're basically just running to the next stab target, lol.

@m4r-k7, seems like we gonna get a lot of activities in this one too. They keep bringing up 'A Thousand Stories of Paris'. Collecting Animus fragments =/= stories, right?

I've always wanted a longer AC game. I'm the kind of person that, whenever I buy a game, the only thing I do for days (other than going to college, of course) is playing the game, so I always end the main story thinking "that's it?". Of course, there's still lots of stuff to do and it takes ages to complete it, but perhaps having it a bit more balanced with a few more storyline hours and a bit less side content (just a bit, because that's what really makes you explore the setting in-depth, after all) could make it better.

m4r-k7
07-25-2014, 07:34 PM
What I tend to do with AC games is take my time with the story as I don't want to finish it too quickly. I normally only do like 1 or 2 main missions each time I play. Apart from that I just free roam and do other stuff

I suppose that's actually the way it should be done and the reason they made side quests almost necessary in order to progress on ACIV, but I'm always too hooked by the story to pay any attention to other stuff. This time around they'll have the "many ways to beat a mission according to how much you have explored the area" backup to that. I'll try to do it that way this time around.

Xstantin
07-25-2014, 07:49 PM
@Daso, see I'm exactly the opposite. I can easily clock sixty hrs on a game like Revelations simply by looking around :nonchalance:

rickprog
07-25-2014, 08:04 PM
I'll try to do it your way with ACU. At least there will surely be customization rewards and alternate paths to help out on missions, so free roaming will actually have a reason to be done.

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:07 PM
I look around sometimes but I like to complete the main story ASAP (without doing Optional Objectives at first) so I can avoid spoilers online and know exactly what I'm getting from the narrative.

Because I love AC's Narrative and universe more than its gameplay and visual appeal.

07-25-2014, 08:10 PM
100 hours? That's an awful lot of side content. I hope this doesn't mean the game will be padded with frivolous filler material. Will there be enough meaningful content in all of those interiors or will they cut corners and cram them with a load of collectibles cleverly dressed as something else? Hoping it's the former.

Xstantin
07-25-2014, 08:11 PM
Have you guys tried playing without hud? It gets even better imo. Black Flag ship's detection messes it sometimes though.

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:12 PM
@Kiro

Ubi should just only provide gameplay DLC if the additional gameplay is at least as long as Blood Dragon, Freedom Cry or TTKW IMO

I agree with that, I love just walking down the streets doing various activities, something I praise in GTA V but sadly it doesn't have many interiors to use, which limits the experience of roleplaying.

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:17 PM
Oh god I hadn't even thought of roleplaying.

Roleplaying co-op in ACU with seamless interiors is going to be fuuuun :rolleyes:

Xstantin
07-25-2014, 08:19 PM
I played every game without hud pretty much, it gets a bit confusing at first, but there's always some landmark to get your bearings. Maybe that's why I get crazy hours playing AC though :o

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:20 PM
I never played AC without the hud. I practically play the games while always staring at the map in the corner of the screen, lol. The only way I know where to go. At least in the first two or three playthroughs.

SpiritOfNevaeh
07-25-2014, 08:22 PM
Hmm, 100 hours of side content, eh? Well, as long as it's good. Nothing pains me more than having tons of boring content. :p

Chests are awesome. Even when I was rich in AC 4 my OCD kicked in and I had to get every one.

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:29 PM
I never felt rich enough. Leaderboards discourage me in that regard.

m4r-k7
07-25-2014, 08:31 PM
Money has always been awfully done in past AC games. I want money to be hard to get, not easy so when I buy something new, I feel like I have achieved something. Also at the end of the game there should be some ultimate items that cost like tons and tons of money as when you finish the game your money stacks up and all you spend it on is ammo (which you can pick up anyway)

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:33 PM
I usually never spend any money in an AC game unless it's required.

Never got the crossbow in brotherhood.

If i can kill just as easy with my default weapons, then there's a problem.

There needs to be more incentive to spend money other than slightly better weapons (which arent even necessary since default ones do the job) and restoring places.

ACIV did it best where money investment upgraded your ship which affected gameplay.

m4r-k7
07-25-2014, 08:38 PM
I just buy stuff for their appearance. I never bought armour in AC 2 as I didn't want Ezio's robes covered with metal like some sort of warrior or knight and in AC 4 I stuck with crap swords just for their look (although bad swords are just as good as the best swords with the combat in AC 3 and AC 4)

I will probs be the same in Unity. Its all about the look!

Yeah AC 4 and ship customization was good. You needed to upgrade or you were screwed.

Xstantin
07-25-2014, 08:44 PM
It's always about the look :D speaking about money I kinda wish thieves/stalkers would make a comeback in Unity. I'd let them steal from Arno if he gets too rich.

JustPlainQuirky
07-25-2014, 08:44 PM
Oh wait i forgot I do spend money sometimes.

On outfits.

I'm a very fashionable assassin.

The one incentive to spend money and it doesn't affect gameplay whatsover. Which is kind of a good thing since an outfit I like wouldn't have the stats I don't want. Can't say we won't have that problem for Unity though.

I should make a thread about that....

Kirokill
07-25-2014, 08:45 PM
As said appearance, completed AC2 stories with no armor on chest or shoulder pads.
What I dislike is the ship being almost fully metal looking with fully upgraded, not to mention how badly organized the board is, seems like they're reckless fixers.

rickprog
07-25-2014, 08:48 PM
Oh but I think customization will have a more significant effect this time around, with the gear having different stats and so on. That's a double-edged sword, because there's stuff that could have an appearance one finds appealing, but the effect doesn't go along with your gameplay style at all, or vice versa. My choice will be having the look I like and adapting my gameplay to it. That could add some bit of a challenge to it as well.

15-20 hours? Just like their exclusive dlc's are 1 hour?
I am actually pretty concerned about the main story its length. Someone on the forums once counted all the main story missions of all the ac games. And every game after ac2 has had less and less missions. So I hype the don't exagerate here and that the story is indeed 15 hours long.

Maybe they can pull off a good story in that time but I'm super greedy and want tons of story so....hmm good point

Played it on ps3. The game itself was ok, story was kinda boring and messy, but its length was the most dissapointing for me. The graphics were great though.

Zelda games like Skyward Sword took me usually like 40 hours to beat and 60 hours to 100%

So I'm used to long stories.

The 20 hours are based on what was said in previous interviews, not on my personal playthroughs. I have absolutely no idea how long it took me to complete all the story missions. I like to complete all the side missions and collect collectibles while i'm playing the story missions.

LOL!!!! That would be some kind of record. I highly doubt it's possible to complete the whole game in 10 hours. The intro alone was a couple of hours at least.

Those are an estimate of what I remember from last summer. AC:B was a lot shorter than 10 hours. And AC:2 wasn't longer than AC:3.

Length of these games, when including everything else, are

AC:1 - 20 hours
AC:2 - 30 hours

What's the point of trying to complete the game as fast as possible without playing any of the side content or collecting al the collectibles? It seems pointless to me.

I always like getting distracted and playing the game for hours without completing a single mission. Just exploring.

As far as I know, there wasn't any way to check how long I've played unlike the sequels. I mostly just looked at the clock from when I started and from when I stopped. IIRC, I was above 20 hours, but I'm estimating the hours. AC:2 was really around 34 hours, and AC:B was 38 hours.

These are also the time it takes to unlock the achievements as well.

15-20h is the perfect length for an open world campaign imo. 100h sidecontent sounds a bit too much to me though. Worried about padding/copy-pasting. Whatever it's obv a very crude estimate, so it's hard to draw any conclusions really.

It does seem a bit much. I believe in the black flag interviews they said that the whole game + side content was 50-60 hours. If unity has 100 hours of side content alone, it's going to take a long time to complete 100%!!

This is the typical AC length marketing announcement.

I want heaps of side content, if Ubi say 100 hours then it's most likely about 50. Story will probably be 10-15 hours, however I have no problem with story length as long as the story is good. There are even some games were the story went for too long (Alan Wake, GTA IV). As long as everything that needs to be told, is told then I don't care how long it is really.

That crazy thats exsactly what i do it has made the series longer also more enjoyable and very balenced when i first started the series i played the same way jstory missions in a day or whatever but the next time around i had to savor it and thare is way more things and diffrent situations then i ever thought

Ubi said 60-80 hrs w/ sidecontent in Black Flag and it actually was around that.

Plus Unity has co-op missions and such.

I'd believe 80-100 hors.

I'm at 94% in AC4 and I've played for 40 hours.

Ubi always lie when it comes to this, AC3 was supposed to be 20% longer then AC2 when it was actually 20% shorter. An AC game has never been factual with this info.

Hopefully it has a lot of replay value, even if the main story might seem to be lacking in hours.

AC4 was pretty decent but I thought it had the least replay value out of all the games. Only spent a little over 300 hrs across two save files (not including the mp).

roostersrule2
07-26-2014, 02:33 AM
Only 300? That's heaps man.

What is the most hours you've ever spent on an AC game? This could beat M's record.

I'd say AC4 had a lot of replay value though, lots of side content. The game with the least replay value would have to be ACR.

Yea AC4 does have a lot of decent side stuff but I replay the games for the main missions. :) :p

Yea I only ever replay the story, I usually just keep a main game where I do the side content and then have other games where I just play the story.

Towards the end he says the story's about 15/20 hours, adding in all side content it's about 100 hours!!

In terms of story-length, AC2 hit the nail on the head perfectly and side missions were the best in ACB, especially the ones where you kill the templars from the MP. Ashraf said Black Flag was around 10-20 hours, which was about right. AC3 was a bit shorter and Revelations is the shortest by far.

Well, AC4 was pretty long too. I think It's a good amount of things to do. I just hope that they will be worth doing and playing.

@rice don't feel bad haha I'm at around 60 hours for AC3 myself. WE ARE THE TRUE CHAMPIONS.



I'm at 94% in AC4 and I've played for 40 hours.

Ubi always lie when it comes to this, AC3 was supposed to be 20% longer then AC2 when it was actually 20% shorter. An AC game has never been factual with this info.

actually isn't this all just all subjective though and actually depends on the player?

It would be cool if there are still random events that show up (like in Freedom Cry) once you finish the game.

christ.

and here I am with my 60 hours on AC3 like the lowly peasant I am

(tho to be fair that doesnt include the hours i spent on the wii u version)

Steam seems to think I spent 64 hours in Dishonored, which would be two plays of the game and one of the DLC, and the same for Sleeping Dogs (twice also). I'm most surprised to see 107 hours logged for DA:Origins, since I only played that once!

Thankfully Uplay doesn't seem to store statistics, so I won't ever know how long I've sunk into most Ubisoft games.

Uplay does store statistics for me though?

I think even the game itself stores the amount played when you go to statistics screen.

But thats not the accumulated hours over all your save files.

Just checked BF (I have two saves) one tells me 13 hrs, another gives me 56, so they're separate.

I spent over 100 hours in AC3, and I still prefer to play it most over all. What I hate is the walking animations. Even Arno now has a weird walk, only Edward was normal in my eyes.

Perhaps people who racked up more hours free roamed a lot, that's not really content though so it doesn't count.

Thats why open world games are the best for length. You are always able to free roam. I think the main story, side missions and free roaming opportunities are great.

I agree. I always love to get distracted for hours and hours.

I haven't done a main story mission in Assassin's Creed 4 for the last 5 times I've played it.

Me neither. Mainly because I beat it already, though.

Lol, I don't know if that counts. I finally did a mission today and it was the one when you go to the observatory ( really cool architecture and jungle) and Roberts betrays you. And then you go to prison and just wow! Lots of cool stuff in one mission. :D

I'm almost hitting that 300 hours on AC:IV. Tonnes of replayability with that game.

AC 4 was a fantastic game for many reasons - replayability is definitely one of those reasons!
