One aspect of modern titles that gamers are increasingly concerned with is how many hourst it takes to complete any give game. Consumers are interested in knowing how long specific titles will keep them occupied as a direct correlation between their monetary worth versus their engagement level. Providing the numbers that these gamers want to know, Gameranx reported on July 25 that Ubisoft has revealed the estimated game length for Assassin’s Creed Unity.

The developer of the Assassin’s Creed franchise has announced that the upcoming next installment of the series that is only coming to new generation platforms will take approximately 15-20 hours to complete the main campaign storyline. However, Ubisoft also confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Unity will provide players with loads of additional side content. In fact, according to the developer, the total game length will clock in at over 100 hours once bonus missions are accounted for.

When it comes to non-essential content, Assassin’s Creed Unity is supposed to have so many side quests that Ubisoft was worried that players might miss the bonus missions’ start locations. The fear that fans might be able to pass by extra missions too fast was one of the reasons that the developer recently gave as to why Unity won’t feature horses.

Assassin’s Creed Unity launches later this year only on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. The game is set in Paris during the French Revolution. Taking advantage of new-gen hardware, the cutscenes will be rendered inside the game engine to allow seamless transitions between gameplay and cinematics. Assassin’s Creed Unity will have an emphasis on stealth and new co-op enabled missions that are being introduced to the series for the first time. In place of the competitive multiplayer that was found in recent installments of the franchise, Unity will instead include four-player cooperative gameplay.
