The upcoming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is setting up to be a great addition in the series of Assassin’s Creed. The recently released trailers showed a little back story of the conflict between Athens and Sparta. We have also learned that the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey story will likely take players up to 40 hours to finish, which kind of tells us how much story depth will be in the game.
As confirmed by PowerPyx, a website known for walkthroughs and guides, it took them 41 hours to finish the story of the game, skipping a few dialogues scenes here and there. PowerPyx also added in the post:
It took me 41 hours to finish the story. I ended up at Level 37 of 50. I listened to most dialogues but skipped some (especially in side quests). You have to do a lot of side quests to level up. There are huge level gaps between some story quests and side quests are the only good way to get XP. Besides, they also reveal locations to new Cultists so you have to do them anyway.
The story time doesn’t take into consideration about completing the game 100% where you go find every little collectible and note that is in the game, it only talks about the main story and some side quests of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. However, if you are a speed run freak, you can skip the dialogue sequences, cut scenes, and rush through the story in just over 30 hours to finish the game.
PowerPyx also notes that 41 hours also take into account of the uncovering of the whole map, considering the map in this game is huge, and is vital to exploration to unlock hidden areas to make the gameplay that much helpful.
In the post, PowerPyx gave some insight about the function of leveling up in the game. Apparently, in an hour or so of the playtime, with the completion of 4-5 quests, you level up at least once. Leveling 50 or more could add up your time to a massive 50 hours or more, taking into account if XP boosters are not used.
Based on what PowrPyx had to say about the playtime, it looks like Odyssey is longer than the previous title; Assassin’s Creed Origins, which clocked in at 30 hours for the story. This only confirms how big of a game Odyssey is setting up to be for Assassin’s Creed fans. We should also add that the playtime hours will more than likely increase to 100+ when the DLC start releasing for the game in the months to come.
