God of War III to be Longer Then 10 Hours
Santa Monica Studios’ John Hight, has been making the Internet rounds, talking to various sites about the companies anticipated upcoming third installment of God of War. While speaking with MTV about how long the game will be in terms of length, he promised God of War III will be “considerably longer” than the previous entries. He even joked a ten-hour game wouldn’t be that long, when compared to the other two.
John Hight: “We’ve done a lot of play testing on it. We know, for a really hardcore player, it’ll take them longer than it took them to play either of the previous “God of War” games.”
MTV: “Longer than seven hours?”
Hight: “Oh yeah.”
MTV: “Considerably longer than seven hours?”
Hight: “I think so.”
MTV: “Is ten…um…longer? [This is me trying to be sneaky]”
Hight: “Ten is longer, but ten might not be considerably longer! [laughs] It’s more than 10 hours.”
While I would love to take his word for it, I’ve been burned so many times by developers promising a certain game would be “x-amount” of time to play through it; and later, only to find out it wasn’t anywhere near the estimation. However, I do have to admit, it’s exciting to read what he feels the length will be, but I’m trying so hard not to get my hopes up.
