Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: New details reveal 100% game completion time

By Alan Ng - Jun 5, 2011

Earlier on this week we brought you some much needed new details on the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game. Now we’re pleased to say that we have found some additional information on the game for you now, in particular the amount of time you’ll have to spend to finish the game 100%.

We previously told you some new information related to new dragon shouts, confirmed factions so far and much more, but now it has been reported that Skyrim will feature a staggering 300 hours of content.

Don’t forget 300 hours is just the standard content time. You can probably add another 100 hours on top of that for those of you who like to take time leveling up, completing tasks, minigames and so on. Oblivion was another epic game with hours and hours of playability thanks to added quests and DLC, and it looks like Skyrim is set to follow accordingly.

The information has surfaced from NeoGaf forums, and a supplementary report over at GamingEverything also contains some more information on the game related to melee attacks, a high levelled dragon shout and new details on doomstones.

What are your thoughts on the potential 300 hours of content offering? – Would you be satisfied with this? At the end of the day, players are definitely going to get their money’s worth with 300 hours of content plus any extra quests and DLC content.

Hopefully Bethesda will confirm this for us at E3. Give us your thoughts if you are planning to pick up the game.

  • Why is all this info spread across sixteen different pages on this website? why not put it all on one page? and btw on one of the other 15 pages it said this game is neverending so 300 hours is false, maybe its true for main quest and side quests but other than that smaller side quests will never stop and also generate new ones

  • Interesting read and Todd H. had/have said this in several E3 interviews in the past three days. However, it’s not about the amount of time it takes to finish the main quest, side quests, but the quality on the contents and improved AI system, and Bethesda Softworks are doing it with style, well done! 🙂

    Their past games were awesome in themselves. With all the new improvements, I expect nothing less than awesomeness!!!

    Well, maybe. I’d definitely go for the game and buy it…

    But, they do have alot of work to do. Combats nice, shouts are nice, all the new stuf is nice, but theres alot of ragdoll and “glitchy” slide across the floor when hit stuff I don’t want either. Just my 2 cents in this shiny new vending machine.

    • right but those glitches were on oblivion which ran on a different engine entirely, skyrim is i think i heard on the havoc engine which has been in games like bioshock soo hopefully these problems are fixed

      • It’s their own engine called the Creation Engine. It’s just a super-reprogrammed version of the engine used for oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas – everything is rendered in new ways, so it’s like a new engine, but a lot of the old stuff is still probably hidden in there somewhere, giving the game the same type of feeling.
