Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture Lasts “Probably 4 to 6 Hours”
Developer also confirms no physical release until the game “sells a large number of copies”.
The Chinese Room’s long in development PS4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture will be out on August 11th and there’s quite a bit of mystery surrounding it. However, it seems it may not be as long as one probably expected.
Regarding the game’s length, the developer stated on Twitter that it, “Depends a lot on how much you explore. Probably 4-6 hours. Lots of insides to explore.”
This isn’t too shocking considering the overall length of the studio’s first game Dear Esther and even of Amnesia: A Machine of Pigs. Then again, considering its long development cycle, it does come across as odd.
The studio also remarked that the game wouldn’t be receiving a physical release. “Not unless it sells a very large number of copies.” Such a thing is true for many digital releases so it’s not really that strange.
But what about the length of the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
