Estimate what your total playing time of Black Flag will be based upon current information

Mine: 120 hours can't wait :D :D :D :D :D :D

...Why so short

That's a pretty decent amount if you ask me. I doubt you'll rack up 120 hours

Depends how long the game itself is and how good it is.

AC3 tier - 1 playthrough for story, that's it.

Good - dunno how many times I'll replay it..

30 hours for the story

70 hours for exploring everything + sidequests and forts

15 hours for modern day stuff

5 hours for minigames and just fooling around

Altogether makes 120 hours

No AC story has been 30 hours long for me.

ACII took me around that, ACIII took me around 20 so it is possibru :P

I have a tendency to binge on a single game, beat the story pretty quick, and then not come back to it for a while. I'll probably spend 20-30 hours on Black Flag after it launches and then come back to it sometime in the future (maybe six or eight months later) to sweep up any extra content I may have missed.

Over 3 playthroughs of AC3 I amassed about 135 hours. I expect about the same for Black Flag but if the random events are good enough maybe I'll play alot more.

08-05-2013, 11:25 AM
I'll probably clock in at least 60+

I'm pretty high in AC3 like that as well. so I know that number will be it easy.

Well, i'll play through the story, doing side stuff along the way, i may then continue for a few days to finish some more side stuff, then i'll play it again in a few months, and thus the cycle continues.

Its all about how many times you slit your goat. A few times too many, then you just have a dead goat.

I guess about 200 hours.

I play Multiplayer too, so.

I reached AC3 to 1842 hours.

SP about 40-50 hours including story and most side content. But I will play ACIV multiple times as I do with all AC titles.

I play MP also, so countless hours in that.

40 hours.
I don't play my games in chunks (except for skyrim)
I play them in wholes, I play side missions and find collectibles as they are made available, I don't wait until the main story is over to do side missions or look for feathers.
I believe the game itself will be jsut as long, but the size of the map will extend the gameplay by at least 10 hours.

RinoTheBouncer
08-05-2013, 11:47 PM
Frankly, I'll finish the story and any side mission related to the main story. I could care less about collecting 500 flag that won't unlock anything nor bother playing chess or whatever...

Before or after multiplayer?

08-05-2013, 11:58 PM
AC1- 40 hours
AC2- 150 hours
ACB- 50 hours
ACR- 40 hours
AC3- 70 hours

For AC4 I'll say around 70-80 hours.

MAYBE before MP..i`m saying maybe because the last time I played MP was in Brotherhood. from what i`v seen so far, I may return to MP here..i`v clocked over a 100 hours in AC III without ever touching MP

Purely for the main path?

Historical main path would take me the full 25 hours that people are sceptical of. I'm obsessed with playing missions COMPLETELY unnoticed. Since Ashraf thankfully said that we can stealth our way through the WHOLE game, I see myself spending a great deal of time playing the campaign alone. Glorious glorious stealth.


The main modern path would take me an extra 10-15 hours like Ashraf said. I'm not that bright when it comes to puzzles.


So that's about 40 hours only for the modern and historical main paths. Taking into consideration the side missions AND the random missions and exploration, I'd say I'll spend at least 10 hours "getting lost in the world" and another 20 actually doing its side missions. That's about 70 hours. Pretty much the most time I'll spend in any AC, so I'm very excited for what the brilliant AC4 devs made for.us.

Verdict: 70-90 hours for me with all the collectibles.

Here's the thing: I won't play MP and if I do, it will be only for an hour or two and that's it. I've never been interested in any game's multiplayer, except for Mass Effect which had an effect on the main game, that's why I played it beside being fun, itself and Resident Evil to unlock outfits and characters and it was a brief time that I played it.

I won't bother liberating forts or Templar dens unless I really need to, like opening slots for recruits maybe or gaining big stuff for the games. I won't do any side missions that have no story value. I will just finish the whole game with all it's DLC and side missions that are RELATED to the story.

I wanted a good ending for my icon, my hero, my idol, Shepard. I thought it was good to give us a reason to play the MP. I played the Last of Us but I didn't even touch the MP section and same for AC:B, AC:R and ACIII.

Ok, lets see....

Took me about a week to do AC 1, probably just under 2 weeks for AC2, ACB and ACR about a week each (roughly), all main story (only did MP in brotherhood, and that i only did 2 or three sessions), and as for AC3, I've given up on it, since I keep loosing the mission where I have to hold that firing line against the British, Sequence 7 I think, and. I. Keep. Losing. My. Troops! So i've just given up on Conor.

As for Black Flag, well, based on past experience, I'd say....maybe 2 weeks? Depending on how long the game is, and how long I spend playing each day/night.

This is mine

1. First playthrough (Main story and side quests i want to do)
2. Second Playthrough (Main Story and any side quests I missed)
3. Thrid Playthrough (hardcore playthrough) (Main Story and all side quests ) (probably going to challenge myself and see if I can beat it in a weekend)
4. AC5 Hype playthrough (This is when I play shortly before AC5 comes out)

Well 2 weeks before, I do what I like to call an AC Campaign where I play through all the main Assassins Creed Games. That takes up a lot, then about 20 on story (1 play through) depending on how good the game is about 10 on side quests and 10 on all the treasures and those things like the Mayan ruins and doing viewpoints and feathers or AC4's equivalent of that. Then Ill go back to messing around with all the AC's like I do usually.

The 125 hour part

What's so weird about that...? I've spent 120 hours on ACIII so far!! :D Then, I'll definitely be extending that at some point!! ^_~

Anyway, I think I can safely say, if there is plenty to do on ACIV I'll probably spend at least 100 hours!! xD Lol, most likely much more though. :)

Ureh
08-06-2013, 03:32 PM
AC1 - 4 times
AC2 - 35 times
ACB - 17 times
ACR - 6 times
AC3 - 3 times (planning a 4th)

So AC4 will probably be around 3 times.

Well, I'll play it as long as it takes me to get 100%. But seeing as I always fool around and investigate everything during my first playthrough, I'm sure it'll take me a while.

After that, I'll just replay it and search for details I missed during my first playthrough. And when that's over, I'll just play it again everytime I feel like it or when I decide to replay all the games.
