Arkane Studios has indicated that Dishonored will last players in the region of 20+ hours.
Writing on the official Bethesda forum, level designer Dan Todd wrote, “my ghost and no kills playthrough took 22 hours. That’s without exploring every nook and cranny, and knowing the solution to everything beforehand.”
“It should take more thorough/inexperienced players a bit longer than that,” he added.
It’s worth remembering that Dishonored is open to many different play styles, however. Gamers can opt to tackle things head on and go in all guns blazing, or take things more methodically by employing stealth tactics.
DIshonored is due out next week on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360. The game sees players assuming the role of Corvo Attano, a former bodyguard of the Empress of Dunwall. However, Attano is framed for her murder, and as such turns to the life of an assassin to hunt down and seek revenge on those who conspired against him.
