Lies of P is the latest game to be released in the Soulslike genre, and its popularity will have many fans wondering how long it is. Not only will we cover how long Lies of P is, but also how long it will take if you want to beat every single boss, find every weapon, and every collectable.

The game is dripping with style, wearing its Bloodborne and Sekiro influences on its sleeve in the hope of delivering an authentic experience in an increasingly popular genre.

Below is all you need to know about how long Lies of P takes whether you’re a completionist, or mainlining the story.

How long is the Lies of P's main story?

The Lies of P main story, if you engage with no extra content and just power through the main bosses, will take around 30 hours. However, it is hard to tell with this kind of game exactly because there’s always a chance you will get stuck.
Lies of P sees players power through different areas, fighting hordes of enemies along the way with bosses sprinkled throughout the world. If you get stuck on a section or a boss then there is no saying how long it may take.

If you plan on seeing everything in Lies of P, beating every boss and collecting every record, the game will take upwards of 50 hours and that is without taking the difficulty into account. Realistically if you’re just playing the game and exploring when you see something of interest, we expect Lies of P to take a round of 40 hours for the average player.

That is all you need to know about Lies of P’s length, if you're enjoying the game but struggling to find Moonstones to upgrade your weapons we have you covered, or if you want a look at all the bosses in order we have that too. For everything else, take a look at our Lies of P homepage.
