LEGO City Undercover is supposedly a huge game, but how many hours does it take to finish it? According to its executive producer, Loz Doyle, it could take players 40-50 hours to complete the game. Granted, if players just wanted to finish the main story, by completing its 15 missions, it’ll take a shorter amount of time, but there are numerous unlockables and collectibles that players need to finish the game 100%, and the in-game world is expansive and could take several hours to explore. LEGO City Undercover launches for Wii U on March 18th in North America, and March 28th in Europe and Australia.
There are so many vehicles, characters and missions. There’s so much content in the game already – you’re talking 40-50 hours to get 100%, it’s difficult to imagine what we could put in. We wouldn’t rule it out, but it’d have to be the right thing to fit with the rest of the game.
…Initially in the San Francisco area at the start of the game you’re really focused on the story, but as you get more abilities you’ll see things that had locked icons before that you couldn’t use, and now you can. That’ll encourage you to explore and use those different game mechanics and abilities.
