The amount of time needed to beat Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth might be even bigger than you expect when looking at its chapters list. 

Being much larger than Remake in both story and scope, FF7 Rebirth looks like you’ll need quite a few hours to beat the game

Spoiler warning: The chapter list will include mild story spoilers for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.

How long to beat FF7 Rebirth story

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will take 35-40 hours to beat at minimum, but that’s only if you take part in as little side content as possible throughout the entire game. 

Completing a fair amount of side missions which included all of the Queen’s Blood card game content for his FF7 Rebirth review, my colleague Harry Boulton beat the game in 51 hours. 

Of course, if you also decide to play on the harder difficulty settings for Rebirth, including the challenging Dynamic mode, you may end up adding a few extra hours to your playtime as well - accounting for slightly more intense battles which may need several attempts.

How long to 100% complete

Completing everything Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has to offer will take you anywhere from 80-100 hours

That’s to complete all of the side quests, but it can take you more likely to the higher end of that estimate if you want to finish all of the optional World Intel activities as well.
