Codemasters has confirmed to VG247 that single-player portion of Grid 2 will last over 30 hours. Codemasters Senior Executive Producer Clive Moody told VG247 that during internal testing GRID 2's single-player campaign clocked over 30 hours (for full completion).
Clive Moody said, "It’s massive. Playthroughs at the moment – if you want to 100% the whole game – you’re looking at 30-hours plus for the average gamer to get through that experience.
That’s doing everything we have to offer, all of the side events, promotional events and challenges as well. It’s a large experience that will keep people busy, and once they’ve blitzed that then online multiplayer is there."
Senior games designer Ross Gowing added, “We’ve noticed a trend in recent years with some of the supposedly ‘big’ games that were actually six hours long, and we didn’t feel that was sufficient value for money for our fans at all. We wanted to make sure there was so much more for them to do.”
GRID 2 launches on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 across North American from May 28, and across Europe from May 31.
