Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the upcoming adventure set in Ancient Greece, could be a lot longer than its predecessor.
In a recent video interview with Game Informer, game director Scott Phillips answered a ton of rapid-fire questions. While his answers were brief, due to the format, a question about the game’s length led to a straightforward answer.
“Is the game about the same length as [Assassin’s Creed Origins]?” asked Game Informer’s Jeff Cork.
“No, much longer,” Phillips replied.
That means that we could be in for quite a long game when Odyssey comes out. According to How Long to Beat, a site that collects and averages out gamers’ play times in various games, the main story of Origins alone took players around 27 hours, while players who went out of their way to do side quests and extras took 47 hours. A completionist playthrough of the game averages around 78 hours. That’s already a fairly long game. If Odyssey is even longer, we could be looking at a game that will take months for the average player to finish.
We’ve learned a lot more about Odyssey recently, including details of the combat mechanics and mercenary systems, and the fact that (sadly) you can’t get it on with Socrates. The game is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and is set to release on October 5th.
