A Plague Tale: Requiem is not an open world game, but a traditional linear adventure. Its duration is appropriate – 15-18 hours.
Lead Level Designer Asobo Studio Kevin Pinson (Kevin Pinson) mentioned this detail in an interview with PLAY magazine. According to the MP1st website, the developer stated that the authors did not try to stretch the passage:
The main thing is pace. There is no filler, there is no attempt to make it [игру] longer simply because we had to. Our publisher Focus Interactive, trusted us to choose the length we want for our story. So we don’t focus on a specific number of hours. We did not take this into account when we did the initial design of the game. We are a small team of 70 people and therefore we must make a choice very decisively.
According to HowLongToBeat, the original A Plague Tale You can complete it in 12.5 hours if you follow the story slowly, or in 16 hours if you set a goal to get all the achievements.
Requiem will be available on October 18th. Platforms – PC (Steam, GOG, EGS), PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch (cloud version). The novelty will immediately replenish the Game Pass catalog.
