Dishonored Reveals Its Length To World

There’s a Dishonored Q&A on the Bethesda Blog, worth a quick read – a very quick read as it’s only short. Anyway, in it is word that the game will last around 12-14 hours should you blitz your way through it. See:

“Play-style matters a lot. Very direct players will probably get through the game in 12 or 14 hours. Explorers who eavesdrop a lot will take twice as long.”

Note the end part of that statement too, which seems to have fallen by the wayside if online comments are to be believed. Which they never are. Why am I basing this on online comments? They’re less representative of gaming than the Daily Mail’s ‘news’ output.

Anyway – even if you’re rushing through, 12-14 hours is a good length for a game. In fact, if you’re rushing it might be a bit too long. But what is a good length? Single-player seems to be becoming more and more a 4-6 hour distraction, rather than something that takes more than a single, dedicated Saturday to play through.

Do we still want 12-14 hour lengths on ‘quick’ playthroughs? Do we want 24-hour ‘standard’ playthroughs as standard? I have no idea. What I do know is I got bored of Kingdoms Of Amalur 35 hours in. So there’s that.
