Starhawk Single-Player Campaign To Last 5-8hrs, Says Lightbox

Lightbox, the developer behind PS3-exclusive Starhawk, admits the game will last between 5-8hrs according to studio boss Dylan Jobe.

That’s what he said while speaking to Eurogamer recently, adding that there’s some concern when the media goes off about games being too short, but he’s not wholly focused on such things.

“Shooters these days range between five and eight hours, depending on a play through. We’re going to be in that range,” he said.

“There is some concern sometimes, when a guy in the media will be like, ‘Oh my God, it’s too short for single-player.’ I just don’t see it that way.

For example, if you play most shooters from start to finish, if you play it again you’re going to get pretty much the same experience. You could go play Halo on mercenary mode or whatever. It’s going to be tougher, but it’s still pretty much going to be the same experience.”

Starhawk is Warhawk’s “spiritual successor” according to Lightbox, and it came only with multiplayer. So the mere fact we’re getting some single-player action in the second game is reason enough to be grateful.

Official reveal’s through here, and screens here.

    why so short?
    was so happy this has a campaign, but if its that short why bother?
    kinda smells like a half a$$ed attempt to gain more sales.
    oh well, i guess thats one to strike off the list.
    i dont buy 6 hour games!
    theres a perfect place for those, its called the video store!
