Those excited to dive into a revamped horror experience may have one big question: how long is the Dead Space remake? Horror games are generally known for being lean and concise, and the original Dead Space from 2008 is no exception to this rule. Though it is a faithful adaption, there are some new things this time around.


In this guide, we'll break down how long we expect the Dead Space remake to be. Now that we have finished the game for ourselves, we are basing this number on our playtime and community feedback.

How long is the Dead Space remake?

From our playtime with the game, the Dead Space remake will take somewhere between 10-12 hours to complete. Each of the 12 story chapters take an hour or just under, so it clocks in at around 12 hours if you take your time and progress through the game at a good pace.


This equally seems in line with how long the 2008 Dead Space game was. According to, that game clocks in at 11 hours, as per community voting. Considering there are some new side missions in this remake, an extra hour of playtime seems likely.

Of course, if you're going for 100% completion - think all audio logs, collectibles, and upgrades - that number will go up significantly. There's even a hidden ending to uncover, so strap in for a lengthy experience if you want to see all of what Dead Space has to offer.

That's it for our look at how long you'll need to beat the Dead Space remake! For more on the game, check out whether it has a New Game Plus mode, as well as how to change suits.
