Im still a bit confused atm.
One of the first previews said ( I think GI ) said that GTAV will be around the length of RDR ( the mission count, not the "hour" count). Aparently many complained that GTA4 was too long.

Then there was something about an possible translation error related to this info.


So do we have any new Info about the length?

I would actually like the length of IV if it wont get as repetetive as IV again.
Or even the length of San Andreas.
I think the length of RDR was fine for what it was but GTA should have more Missions. Actually even more Missions than IV and SA with the use of 3 Characters

Not to be a douche, but aren't any "hard" numbers on this arbitrary?

Missions can vary in time to complete (both between missions and between players).
There's not necessarily a connection between how long somebody's been playing and number of missions completed, depending on free roam and side missions.

I know developers and reviewers always estimate time anyway, but it doesn't make sense to me. Again, not trying to be a douche; I truly don't understand where these numbers come from.

Part of the reason IV was long was because many missions were preceded with a long drive where the character's talked and then you got to the action.

Now, I loved all the different conversations and all, but the length of the drives sometimes got annoying when you had to restart the whole mission. With mission checkpoints, that problem should be avoided.

I said mission count and not the hour count

K. So if they say there's 100 missions, what does that actually mean? You can't compare it to other games because the missions can be longer or shorter.

thats what this "translation error" was about I think.

Either way, I rather have more Mission than longer ones. I mean a few long ones from time to time is great but at the end I think the Mission Count still could reflect the time like in previous games.


And like I said, as many Missions as RDR would be a bit too less for 3 Characters in such a huge world

And RDR had long riding sequences and missions too.

I'm thinking 10-15 Separate Mission's for Each Protag, along with 20-25 Interwoven Missions that involve the three.. Think we'd be looking at something like 65-70 Missions all up.

Storyline ( about 60) and Stranger Missions together and you have about 80 Missions in RDR.
So I would be realy dissapointed with 65-70

I'm pretty sure R* said the protags would have their own set of missions each obviously with the main missions being for all 3 of them.

And that should actually lead to more missions than RDR. Yet they said it has about the same length RDR. Lets say 20 of 80 Missions are for the main heists which all 3 are involved, you then have 60 missioms divided by 3. So each protag would have at least 20 own missions. As these are own story lines, its a 20 mission story line for each. Theoretical.
That is one of the things that bugged me from start. More protagonists means they cant go in depth like in previous titles

For me more than 100 missions, and approximately 5 alternative missions which depend of the player's choice.

I honestly think well see 20-30 missions per protagonist, plus the heists/prep so my guess is between 78-100 missions in total (including the preparation of heists)

I'd say about 60 missions.

I hate it when people jump to the conclusion that all main missions are related to heists in some way, whether that means it's the heist itself or some preparation for it. I predict 40-50 main story missions, with 15-20 missions for each protagonist aside. Overall, that does equate to over 100, but the character missions will have some variation in length. So will the main story missions. Heists are bound to be 20-25 minutes long. And of course, it depends on your ability or tactics. If you spend a lot of time in cover, missions are going to be longer. If you rush it all, you'll be rushing through it and not enjoying it as much as you could. Story length can also be shorter or longer than RDR depending on how you play it, too.

yes, I think that was when they said that the length is not the same but the mission count.

that was all f*cked up because it was from an italian preview afaik.


60 Missions , imo, would be way too less but could be true after reading that R* thinks that IV was too long for many people.

SA had over 100 and in contrast to IV they werent even repetetive.

60 Missions would leave about 10-12 missions for each protagonist.

Only they're wrong there because it wasn't too long, just too repetetive. With three protagonists there should be plenty to include in the single player campaign. Anybody complaining it was too long to complete is silly. With a gripping story, they won't be saying that. They'll be asking for more. A story that is too long is one that goes on for months. GTA IV's story could be completed in days.

According to Wikipedia RDR only had 57 missions. It did seem a bit short when I played through it. GTA IV had around 80 or more. I'd be gutted if GTA V only has the same number of missions as RDR. I'd like there to have been 100+ even if some of them were a bit repetitive.

Around the 110 mark would be nice, or if there's less than that I hope they make it FEEL like 100+ missions.

If they pull that off it needs to be kept fresh, I pre-ordered GTA IV, but finished it only about a year later.... it dragged way too much in my opinion, still loved the story, but too much "wash-rinse-repeat"....and it was 88 missions I think?

IV had around 98 missions. V probably has the same amount, or less. But there's also a lot of random encounters/stranger activities as well.
