How long will it take to beat the full Outriders story?

Outriders is a story-driven RPG but how long will it take players to get through it all?
How long will it take to beat the full Outriders story?

From the developers’ mouths, Outriders is a game driven by its story, looting and PvE combat and gameplay mechanics. 

Contrary to some misconceptions, the game will not feature PvP, which does take a possible element to longevity. However, with different World Tiers, loot possibilities and four separate Paths to take, players should enjoy their stay in Enoch long after the game launches on 1st April. 

Though, some players want to know exactly how long they’ll stay for a casual playthrough of the game and some are dying to learn how long the game could take if every piece of content is explored. Luckily, the developers have answered that question in the days leading up to Outriders’ launch.

While there’s no definitive answer to the question of how long it takes to beat the game, developers at Square Enix have stated that players who just play the Campaign will experience around 25-30 hours of gameplay. This is for one single Path and assuming that the player doesn’t choose to partake in any side quests or replay missions in order to earn better loot. 

On the other hand, for players looking to soak up every bit of content available, the game could take “around 2-3x longer” to beat. This assumes all of the side quests, mysteries and Paths are explored. There is also some post-Campaign content that players could choose to play, which only adds to the amount of time spent in Enoch. 

All in all, it seems that if you want the best gear, items and to complete every bit of content, it will take well over 100 hours to beat Outriders. If you double down on this and decide to complete the game with each Path then this time could be doubled or even tripled.

However, if you want a simple stroll through the Campaign on a low World Tier, then expect around 30 hours of gameplay ahead of you. The developers have stated there’s no wrong way to play, so experience the game in whatever way suits you the best.
