No-one need worry about the amount of content in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 19.
The role-playing sequel from Polish developer CD Projekt Red took the team’s fastest internal tester 25 hours to complete, reports Game Reactor. The tester achieved that time by taking the fastest possible route, skipping any unessential side-quests, and clicking through all in-game dialogues. Mere mortals can expect to spend between 50 and 100 hours on the game, according to CD Projekt Red.
The PlayStation 4 exclusive shooter The Order: 1886 made headlines recently for offering around 6 hours of gameplay. That’s not a lot of playing time for an entry price of $60, no matter how good a game is.
Even longer titles like the action role-playing game Bloodborne offer routes that speedrunners — gamers who specialize in completing games quickly — can have fun with. But while Bloodborne can be completed in 37 minutes, The Witcher 3 looks like it will offer a lengthy challenge for everyone that takes it on.
