Estimated Completion Times Improvements

By Rich Stone, 2 years ago
Last week we brought you a new estimated completion times feature, and being the awesome community that you are, you have uploaded over 50,000 time estimates in the last week alone!

There were also several good ideas posted on how we can make this feature better, and we've taken on board some of those ideas to bring you version 2 of this feature today.

To help you gauge how long your games/DLC took you, we've added the start and completion dates, the difference in time before your first and last achievement (if you completed the game in one sitting this will really help you estimate the time), and Xbox One titles will also include the Time Played stat from the game.

Estimates added to game and DLC pages and games list

We've taken the most popular estimated time from your entries, and added them to the game and DLC information panels:

and also to the Full Games List:

New Time Completion Estimates page

Clicking on these times takes you through to a new page where you can see the full breakdown of the game time estimates, along with those your friends have given on a separate graph:

PM on completion

Finally, we've added an auto-PM to remind you to fill in your completion times when you complete a bit of content.

We've also tried to make it clearer that completion times on games with DLC packs are only for the base game.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for the feedback on the feature!
