I’ve been pumped for Firewatch ever since I’ve seen the trailer. If you have yet to see the trailer for Firewatch, you can check it out here. Thanks to an interview with WCCFTech, we now know a little bit more about the game, which excites me.
According to Nels Anderson, one of the developers of Firewatch, the game will take about 5 or six hours, depending on how fast you are, to finish the game. However, the completion time can be extended by visiting areas that are not required of you.
“It’s pretty hard to say since there’s actually quite a lot of “off the beaten path” areas in the game that players won’t have to visit. On average, I’d say maybe 5-6 hours … ? When I play it, it feels comparable to the length of a trilogy of movies or a TV mini-series.”
