Far Cry 4 is looking like it’s going to be pretty explosive. You’ve got unnecessarily violent wildlife, an off-his-rocker villain and a brand new environment to go completely obsessive over. But what about sticking to the marked path? How long will Far Cry 4 actually last?
According to Creative Director Alex Hutchinson, we’re all going to get lost in Kyrat for a very, very long time. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Hutchinson threw out a ball park figure on how long players can expect to be playing Far Cry 4.
@nelslikesdonuts Hard to say. Depends if you aim to complete all the side content. Probably 35 hours on average for everything. It's big

I’m pretty sure that doesn’t just include the main campaign missions, but it also sounds like a little less than I’d expect for full, 100% completion. If you’re like me and like to do a fair share of side stuff while taking the story at a bit of a slower pace, than I think that estimate is pretty much spot on for us. Which makes me vey happy.
Hutchinson also revealed that the game’s competitive multiplayer mode will be revealed soon, along with the locked down specifications for the game on every platform. Here’s to hoping Ubisoft doesn’t try and go the same route that Unity did last week. They can only handle so many PR mistakes at a time.
Far Cry 4 launches next month on basically every home console except the Wii U. Instead, you get Bayonetta 2.
