Resident Evil 6 To Be Triple The Game Length Of Its Predecessor
According to game director Eiichiro Sasaki, the length of Resident Evil 6 will be triple that of Resident Evil 5.
Sasaki, speaking to NowGamer, said that it is expected that Resident Evil 6 will be around 30 hours long.
“The three characters each have their own story and you can choose whichever one you want and play that story, experience that character’s story,” he said.
“In terms of length, each character’s story is a little bit less than RE5 but when you combine them together you’re getting something that is much longer.
“While each character’s story stands alone, all of the characters wind up in the same area of the game, in China, so there is a certain level of overlap. They stand on their own but they do overlap in certain areas. You don’t have to play them all, of course.”
Resident Evil 6 will release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 2, 2012. The PC version’s date is still to be announced, but it’s safe to assume that it will probably only arrive in 2013.
