Many players will want to know the answer to how long is Elden Ring, as it's FromSoftware's biggest game yet, and the first to take the soulsbourne genre into the open world. Elden Ring is already a behemoth success beyond the initial expectations of publisher Bandai Namco, but playing it has the potential to take up a lot of your time. So, if you're interested in finding out the general Elden Ring length, broken down by playstyle, read on.

How Long Is Elden Ring: Main Story

If you just do the main story of Elden Ring, it will take you between roughly 30 to 50 hours, depending on how much you rush.

This is quite a lot of content even though it's the potentially shortest playthrough for most players, which owes to the open-world format of the title and the size of the legacy dungeons where players must venture during the main story. You'll just encounter the main areas and demigod bosses taking this route through the game.

How Long Is Elden Ring: Main Story And Some Side Content

If you decide to engage with some side content throughout the game, it should extend your playthrough significantly. Most players seem to be hitting well over 50 hours with this style of play, with the ceiling of play dependent on how much of the extra content you take part in.

For players that want to explore everything that Elden Ring has to offer, including each major area, side location, side quest, and boss, it will likely take you well over 100 hours. Elden Ring has reams more content than any of the previous soulsbourne games, and some of them can still take around 100 hours to fully complete. 

An important thing to note is that it's possible to lock yourself out of some content in a playthrough, and 100% completion of the game may hinge on starting multiple playthroughs - though you can still gain every achievement in a single run.

In total, at the very least you will be putting the better part of 40 hours into the game, so make sure you have a clear schedule to put in the needed time.

That's our explainer on the Elden Ring length by different playstyles, and now you should have an idea of how much time the game will take you to complete.
