Watch Dogs story 'about 35-40 hours long'

Ubisoft's open world action game releasing on May 27

Watch Dogs' campaign will take around 35 to 40 hours to complete on average, according to creative director Jonathan Morin.

Morin recently confirmed that the game will support multiplayer open world free roaming for up to eight players.

In early March, Ubisoft announced a Watch Dogs release date of May 27 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, with the Wii U version set to "release at a later date".

The highly anticipated open-world game was originally scheduled for release in November 2013, but it was delayed due to quality concerns.

On Monday, Ubisoft said that Watch Dogs' delay had enabled its development team to add new content to the title.

"The entire development team has been working hard to polish and fine tune Watch Dogs in order to deliver a truly memorable open world game," the firm said. "In parallel, the extra time also allowed the team to include a bit of additional content."
