Role-playing games are famously massive, and it seems that Bioware's upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition will be no exception. Producer Cameron Lee has told Polygon that beating the main storyline will take up to 40 hours.

"We want to give our players a real world to explore — we want to give them a BioWare story," Lee told the site. "A really vast, epic BioWare story. That's what we do, and it normally takes 20 to 40 hours anyway to tell the story we want to tell."

However, that's not recommended. Doing so would mean ignoring all the side quests, and not exploring the game's vast open world. Finding and completing everything in the game will take you between 150 and 200 hours, he says.

"People could burn through it and just do the main path, but we wanted to have a world that's fully immersive and well-defined for you to explore, discover and get involved in," Lee said. "We want you to see your decisions have an impact and take shape in the world. We're just making more. More and more and more. And it's all entirely up to the player. It's your world, your game."

Dragon Age: Inquisition is out on 21 November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
