The scope of the upcoming action-adventure “Hogwarts Legacy” is a hotly debated topic. We spoke to two people responsible for the game about the expected playing time of the title.
Last week caused a „Hogwarts Legacy“-Leak caused a stir, who is said to have revealed details of the magical adventure’s playing time, among other things. As part of a preview event, we recently had the chance to conduct a small interview with two creators of the action-adventure and also asked them about the game’s expected playing time.
More than 100 hours of playing time should be offered
The said leak spoke of around 35 hours that players should need to complete the story. However, it should take around 70 hours to complete all of the included missions. However, when asked how long it should take players to complete the title, our interviewees, Narrative Director Moira Squier and Lead Designer Kelly Murphy, gave us slightly different numbers.
“The main story is probably between 40 hours and more if you just play through the main story,” Kelly told us. He then added that with the entire game you could invest “a good 120 hours” in “Hogwarts Legacy”.
Moira echoed this, adding that there is just a lot of content in the game. According to Kelly, there are a whopping 150 missions in total, “depending on how you look at it.” Some are rather smaller, while others are significantly larger and correspondingly more extensive. About 100, if not more, are side missions, according to Kelly Murphy.
Finally, he told us a little anecdote that we don’t want to withhold from you at this point: “You know, I’ve been working on this game for six years and have played through the game several times, but I haven’t seen everything at Hogwarts yet. “
Accordingly, we can probably prepare ourselves for a really extensive magical adventure in “Hogwarts Legacy”. What else Moira and Kelly told us about the action-adventure you can soon read in our complete interview.
