Those with a completionist mentality better clear their calendars from about mid-November on.
During EA's Gamescom press conference, BioWare boss Aaryn Flynn said that in testing, a recent completionist playthrough of the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition came in at 150 hours. That's pretty nuts.
Joystiq got more information from producer Cameron Lee:
"So that's basically, if I did what we call the critical paths, so the major story of the game, and if I went explored all the areas and did the side-content that's in all those areas, [and] did any companion side content, that would take 150 hours."
Lee added that "it's comparable to all other BioWare games" in terms of normal length; in other words, how long it'll take most people to simply finish the campaign. He said he normally clocks "anywhere between 30 and 40 hours" but as he noted, "it's different for everyone." Well, how many hours do you think you'll invest into the new Dragon Age ? And bear in mind that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set for February…
