Far Cry 4 takes 35 hours to complete, runs at 1080p

Far Cry 4 is so huge it should take around 35 hours to complete, according to the game’s Creative Director.

Speaking out on Twitter, Creative Director Alex Hutchinson has confirmed the game should take around 35 hours to complete, if you tackle all the side content too.

“Hard to say. Depends if you aim to complete all the side content. Probably 35 hours on average for everything. It’s big,” tweeted Hutchinson.

Ubisoft also revealed that, although the resolution hasn’t been set in concrete, Far Cry 4 should be 1080p full HD on all formats.

“We have not locked the resolution as yet, but as Alex Hutchinson notes, we are aiming for 1080p on all formats, including PC,” read the FarCryGame tweet.

The news follows in the wake of the Assassin’s Creed Unity resolution confusion, where Ubisoft originally said it would be locked at 900p 30fps on both Xbox One and PS4.

Ubisoft has subsequently gone back on that claim, saying that the resolution hasn’t been quite finalized.

"30 was our goal, it feels more cinematic," said Alexandre Amancio, Artistic and Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal in a recent TechRadar interview.

"60 is really good for a shooter, action adventure not so much. It actually feels better for people when it's at that 30fps. It also lets us push the limits of everything to the maximum. It's like when people start asking about resolution. Is it the number or the quality of the pixels that you want? If the game looks gorgeous, who cares about the number?"

Ubisoft has set the Far Cry 4 release date as November 21 on the PS4, Xbox One, Xbo 360, PS3 and PC.
