Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s immense pirating world looks big enough to explore for weeks – but, surprisingly enough, that isn’t the only one that Ubisoft will include in its blockbuster game.
In a new blog post, the company explained that you’ll also be able to visit Abstergo Industries in the modern day – as yourself. The general game content will spend approximately 20-25 minutes in the offices, though, if you’re curious enough, you can explore and find about three to five hours’ worth of content.
“In total, if you were to do everything in the present day – find everything, hack every computer, access every room – it’s a solid three to five hours,” states the post. “For the main path – the stuff you’re required to do – it’s somewhere between 20 and 25 minutes. You leave the Animus five times during the game’s main path and each time you’re there for about three to four minutes.
“We pretty much tried to boil it down to its most core essence because we know there are people out there who really don’t like the present day, and that’s okay. You don’t have to like it, but it’s part of the brand. For the people who like the present day and are big fans, we put in a lot of fan service and a lot of fun optional content. You get to choose if you want it or not.”
You can explore Abstergo and the rest of Assassin’s Creed’s world when Black Flag releases on October 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC; November 15th on PlayStation 4; and November 22nd on Xbox One.
