Not everyone, however, has an unlimited amount of time on their hands, so some are wondering how long it would take to beat Atomic Heart.

In Atomic Heart's story, players will jump into the boots of an elite soldier called P-3 and explore the mysterious, intriguing, and maddening world controlled by Russian robots. You will be accompanied by an AI-powered glove called CHAR-les to use a wide variety of powers and overcome the challenges of this alt-history setting.

That sounds great, honestly, but how long will it take to beat the game's story if you focus on the main tasks? Well, the game's director, Robert Bagratuni, has revealed the time to complete Atomic Heart's story in an interview with SegmentNext. In the interview, Robert Bagratuni explained:

To complete the main story campaign, players will need to spend approximately 20-25 hours. But since the world of Atomic Heart is quite huge and filled with various activities, the full completion will take much longer.

So 20 to 25 hours to beat Atomic Heart's story, but what about fully completing the game?

While 20 to 25 hours is already a very good length to complete an FPS title's story, you will take much longer to complete Atomic Heart fully.

The developers noted in the interview mentioned in the previous section that Atomic Heart should have a full completion playtime of "about 35-40 hours."

Keep in mind the game allows you to find upgrades for weapons, explore the crazy world filled with detail, find collectibles, and complete various achievements on PC and console. It also depends on a player's skill and the difficulty level chosen, so playtime may vary significantly. The biggest takeaway is that it is not a small game by any stretch of the imagination. Remember, Atomic Heart is also free with an Xbox Game Pass subscription!
