Length-obsessed gamers will be cheered by the news that Rocksteady's next Batman game, Arkham City, will offer forty hours of content, with the main story taking twenty-five hours to beat and sidequests requiring an extra fifteen. 

"It takes over 25 hours to complete the main stories in Batman: Arkham City. To keep players engaged for this length of time, not only do the characters and the story need to progress, but the core mechanics of the game they are playing need to change and adapt as well", said game director Sefton Hill.

"The side missions in Batman: Arkham City are a good example. We have around 15 hours of story that's off the main path."

By all accounts, the game looks like it's going to be a thing of beauty, and the fact that there's plenty of it to go around can only be good news. I'm pretty stoked. What about you lot?
