Uncharted 4 is by all accounts a pretty lengthy game—with some reviewers clocking well over 14 hours in gameplay. In addition to its lengthy single-player campaign, the game offers a wide variety of collectible items for completionists to go after and a multiplayer mode that’s intended to keep gamers hooked for ages after they’ve completed the game, which is exclusive to the PS4.
The game’s co-director Bruce Straley told players who pick it up to play it at a slow pace instead of rushing to complete it. Posting on Twitter, Straley wrote that players should take their time with it, and that it isn’t like the last 3 games.
#Uncharted4 Trick Tip: Take your time. Its not like the last 3. Don't try to gobble it down in one sitting. Settle in. Enjoy the moment.

Straley did not elaborate on why he suggests gamers should take it slow, but we can guess that it’s because the game’s story is much more fleshed out than any previous entry in the series. As Nathan Drake’s last adventure, fans of the character will certainly want to get as much time out of him as they possibly can.
The game’s other co-director Neil Druckmann meanwhile warned gamers of spoilers that will undoubtedly show up online today as some players pick it up a day ahead of everyone else.
2 days left! Lots of spoilers are going to hit the web tomorrow. Stay strong. You're almost there. #Uncharted4
