Dragon Age Inquisition takes about 80 hours to complete on a regular playthrough

I keep hearing that Dragon Age Inquisition will be a massive game that offers countless hours of enjoyment. However, I feel that the word “countless” is used way too often in the gaming industry and developers should really just stick with solid figures. As fate would have it, some of them actually do. Bioware writer Patrick Weekes revealed on Twitter that Dragon Age Inquisition will eat up about 80 hours of your life before you can claim that you finished the game start to finish. He also mentions that this just for a regular old-fashioned playthrough, with many side-quests completed, but not all of them, not even close.

A completionist will definitely have a field day with this title as it seems to be able to keep you glued to your screen for weeks on end if you plan to experience every single bit of content. And you know what? I’m definitely okay with that. As a completionist myself, I’m more than happy to throw money at Bioware if they can provide “countless” hours of epic RPG goodness. But for those of you who actually have a social life, worry not. Weekes says that 80 hours is not the minimum so a speedrunner is likely to finish the game in far less than that. “Will note: people who prefer shorter games could do less than I did. NOT 80 hrs minimum. Still, LOT of game to play if you want,” he says.

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to take advantage of Bioware’s offer and play Dragon Age Inquisition to death. Also, the game features a multiplayer mode, which can potentially add plenty more hours of enjoyment. Look at it this way, by the time you finish the game maybe Mass Effect 4 will actually be ready, or at least given a real name. Dragon Age Inquisition launches on November 18th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and the PC.
