Dishonored a 20+ hour game says dev
Arkane Studios level designer Dan Todd took to the Bethesda forums to answer queries about Dishonored’s running time.
“My ghost & no kills playthrough took 22 hours. That’s without exploring every nook and cranny, and knowing the solution to everything beforehand. It should take more thorough / inexperienced players a bit longer than that.”
While always a fan of long games, I do feel that some games arbitrarily lengthen their game just for the sake of it. For example I felt that Sleeping Dogs would have been much better without the long campaign as the game-play wasn’t deep enough to warrant it. Longer doesn’t always mean better, just look at Call of Duty 4.
Regardless, Dishonered is shaping up nicely and is set for a 12th October release.
