Assassin’s Creed 4 game length for 100% completion

We have an important heads-up for all those planning to max out Assassin’s Creed 4’s campaign mode with a 100% save file. Ubisoft has just revealed the estimated time duration that it will take to achieve this feat, and we think you’ll be pleasantly satisfied with the outcome.

Some fans have been a bit underwhelmed with previous game durations in the last few Assassin’s Creed games, but it looks as if Ubisoft will be making up for that with Black Flag. We can give you the great news that it is going to take you around 80 hours if you want to complete everything in Assassin’s Creed 4 without missing a single thing.

This 80 hours is going to be divided between 20 hours for the main campaign, and then a further 60 hours to complete everything that is contained in the open-world exploration side of the game. That is very satisfying in our opinion and hopefully should go a long way in justifying that $60 launch purchase.

The confirmation can be heard from Ubisoft’s Jean-Sebastien Decant, a game designer for Black Flag. He has been speaking to OPM recently and also revealed an interesting statistic on the game. The map size in Black Flag is around fifteen to twenty minutes long, if you were to keep sailing purely without stopping anywhere.

Are you happy with an 80 hour SP campaign for AC4?

It goes without saying that 80 hours is more than sufficient for the average user picking up the game. A 20 hour campaign is decent, although perhaps this could have been more along the lines of 30 for such a game with the scope of Assassin’s Creed.

Are you happy with this figure for Black Flag or did you expect more? Don’t forget multiplayer on top of that, so it’s good news all round either way you look at it.

I think that’s great honestly. Sure they say 20 hrs in the campaign but I NEVER finish in the time we’re told it’s supposed to take. If it says 20 I can count on 30+. In my estimation I’ll get well over 100hrs out of this and at $60 that’s far less than a buck an hour so what would I have to complain about?


Bit short or am I being unreasonable!? I mean 20 hours is not much AT ALL nowadays! I know there is all the extra stuff but in a game but I look for the replay value in a game. And Black Flag doesnt really have the replay value of say GTA 5. No way near in fact. Will still get though…..was a HUGE fan of AC 3!
