After years of rumours, fundraisers, and fan campaigns, the sci-fi soulslike Dolmen is finally upon us. It's no walk in the park though, with gruelling boss fights, unforgiving checkpoints, and a deep sci-fi story to tell. As such, prospective players will have one thing on the brain: how long is Dolmen? Luckily, we've got the answer you're looking for.

In this guide, we'll break down how long it'll take you to play through Dolmen, based on murmurings from those with early access, as well as our own experience with the game. Disclaimer that we are yet to finish the main story just yet, so it's a combination of how long we expect it to take, as well as the experiences of others.

How Long Is Dolmen?

As per our estimation, completing the story mode in Dolmen will take you anywhere between 10-15 hours.

At least, that's the average time given by someone who claims to have already finished the game. On the official Dolmen subreddit, a user by the name of MaKTaiL claims to have beaten the game in 10 hours. That isn't a total 100% run, but rather defeating the three main stages of the game, each of which are comprised of three separate bosses.

From our experience with the game pre-launch, it'll take you a good few hours to complete the first few bosses, as you get to grips with the game's mechanics and brutal difficulty. Therefore, while experienced soulslike players may only take 10 hours, we expect the 15-20 mark to be more reasonable for newcomers.

If you're going for a 100% run, expect an extra five hours or so on top of that. It'll involve collecting all the possible upgrades and Dolmen crystals, which is no easy feat.

That's it for our look at the Dolmen story mode length! We've also got a Dislyte tier list to browse, if you're looking for the best Esper in the new mobile sensation.
