BioWare: SWTOR players average 4-6 hours per session


The average play session for Star Wars: The Old Republic is between four and six hours long, claims BioWare Austin chief Greg Zeschuk.

Speaking in an interview with Kotaku, Zeschuk insisted that once gamers log in they're finding it hard to stop playing.

"When they play, their sessions are absurd," he said, citing concrete telemetry data.

"What it implies is that we've managed to pull off this 'just-one-more-quest, just-one-more-thing' feeling. I find myself doing that all the time. I just get sucked back in. The playing of the game is off the charts."

He added that Sunday is the busiest play day of the week, while on a weekday, "our average peak play time is mid-afternoon, because East Coast is getting off work, Europe is off work and in their peak, and as Europe goes down, North America goes up."

"The other thing that's really funny is you can tell when things are going really well in the game because the amount of forum chatter drops. People don't go to forums. They just play."

lol Makes sense. I have had many times where I only get an hour or 2 and it is just plain maddening when I log off.

Yea, I play for about that long because after the kids go to bed I have about 4 hours till my bed time.

It would be interesting to know how long people play depending on the time of day.

Hahahahaha.

In truth, I absolutely agree with what BW is saying. When I do play it is for at least that amount of time, even if I don't play everyday.
