Watch Dogs is 35-40 hours

Watch Dogs is the next open-world sandbox game that I’m just itching to get my hands on. I know, it could be overhyped and it has a lot of live up to thanks to the delay, but I’m still excited. So, how long will is the game?

According to the great and powerful twitter, the average (read: non-completionist) player will get 35-40 hours of gameplay – so similar to GTA V:

I’m pretty happy with that. Assassin’s Creed IV gave me hours of gameplay, let alone all the sailing I did. I figure my time with Watch Dogs will be pretty similar – tons of story content, padded even more with side missions, collectibles and the opportunities to just wander around and explore. With a total of 100 hours of content, I don’t think many people will complain about the size of the game, or value for money.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, the new story trailer gives a bit more insight into what’s going on:

For those who don’t watch videos, we basically get to listen to Aiden get Batman voice. No really, he’s doing that raspy thing for no clear reason. That said, the trailer shows him becoming disillusioned with his city, and even shows the scene when he gets the all-powerful smart phone. What follows is a combination of blackouts and explosions to show off his awesome new powers, all being used to save the city, or maybe destroy it. Really, do all stealthy characters do something that make their vocal chords take strain or something? Just talk like a normal person!

    Decent length, I like it a lot!

    (and before any “that’s what she said” jokes come in, yes, THAT IS what she said, seeing as today is humble day and St Paddy’s day!!!)

    Wow I just realised something. Watch Dogs is a game where you spend most of your time playing a game on your phone, so it’s basically a glorified mobile game inside the body of a normal game. Mind… BLOWN!

    It is not always a good thing. I mean, a sandbox game can get pretty boring when the missions are repetitive and story is very uninteresting.

    You can make a 12hour game — 36 hours if you add pointless, repetitive missions etc.

    I think GTA V managed to pull it off pretty good.

      AC 4 pulled it off nicely as well!! I sunk 28 hours into it and for the last 3-4 hours I started fast traveling because I could not stop sinking ships!!! I see a ship I want it destroyed, 3 hours later and countless ships destroyed and I am no nearer to the place where the main story starts….
