Usually, RPG lovers like if the games they play keep them buys for a long time. We have different examples in the past and now it seems like Bioware is going to use the same approach.
Cameron Lee the producer at BioWare has stated that doing everything that has been created for you in the upcoming title will take you between 150 to 200 hours!
That obviously includes everything there is to do in Dragon Age Inquisition; and in contrast, the main story will be somewhere between 20 to 40 hours:
We want to give our players a real world to explore — we want to give them a BioWare story. A really vast, epic BioWare story. That’s what we do, and it normally takes 20 to 40 hours anyway to tell the story we want to tell. People could burn through it and just do the main path, but we wanted to have a world that’s fully immersive and well-defined for you to explore, discover and get involved in.
Taking things in a context, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is boasting of a not-short-at-all game with around 50 hours of main story and 50 hours of side quests. Meaning that CDP has put more into the core story than BioWare but much less in everything else that you can do in the game.
As far as the average ‘completionist’ times of previous installment in the series are concerned, Dragon Age Origins took more or less 80 to 90 hours while Dragon Age II took over 50 hours.
All length approximations were taken from HLTB.
So tell us, how much will the length of Dragon Age Inquisition matter to you?
