1 Game Day = 1 Real-Life Hour.


That don't sound right... I thought it was 1 game day = 2 hours...

you have as many as 50 days in the game by constantly extending the days left through battle and quests


Source?


1 hour = 1 day, so I just did the maths

Very wrong. The max you can have is 13 days.

Or one additional day, which makes 14.

They revised the 50 hour playthrough time to 20-ish hours. If I'm not wrong, 1 day is 1 hour, excluding battles, cutscenes and menu.

Meh, I still don't like the whole time limit thing, but the fact that you can extend it, even by a little bit, is good too. Gives me no time to aimlessly wander places though ;-;.

Let's see it from a critical point of view:

Perhaps the open world isn't as expansive as they would like us to believe, and the time limit just masks it.

I'd like to see how much one has to explore were you to spend 10 days in one region.

Well the wild lands video showed a pretty big map, and I don't think that included sub maps like the temple.

I'm worried it's a random assortment of mobs that appear at different days and times of the day scattered around the map, with nothing to do but fight them.

What's a big world with nothing to do but fighting for no reason?

Haven't seen any quests or random dungeons you can pick up in the middle of nowhere, it's like all story activity is centered around that slum, the moogle village and etro's temple

Are you sure about that? I heard it was longer.


It used to be 48-ish minutes for a day, but then Yuji said they made it 1=1.

I thought the limit was 13 days at any given time

No you don't have 7 hours to beat the game, you get "Days" and "Days left", you have a maximum of 13 days you can have left at any time, but you have as many as 50 days in the game by constantly extending the days left through battle and quests, I hope you get what I mean


I think it will take more than 1 quest to give you a whole day
