Usually, asking how long a Minecraft game will be is like asking how long a piece of string is. Wondering how long is Minecraft Legends? With the latest spin-off being a strategy game this time around, it's a very reasonable question. It has a set storyline and progression system, so estimating how long to expect is easy.

Not only that, but the developers themselves, Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive, have been quite open about how long the campaign for this latest Minecraft iteration is. Of course, every playthrough will vary in length based on experience and strategy, but it’s always good to have a general idea of what you’re working with before you get stuck in.

How long does it take to beat Minecraft Legends?

Single-player length

If you’re playing Minecraft Legends in single-player mode and taking the story at your own pace, then expect the main campaign to take around 18-25 hours.

If you want to complete all the side-quests and explore every corner of the map, then expect to add a solid seven or so hours on top of that estimation. That 100% completion rate has to be properly earned!

Cooperative campaign

Of course, this could alter drastically if you play in cooperative mode. Friends can either be a great help or a great hindrance. We all know what it's like playing Minecraft with them. Playing through the story with friends isn't likely to make it any shorter. It's very carefully paced, and the shenanigans might add a couple of extra hours on top.


PvP match time

However, if you’re asking how long a PvP multiplayer session in Minecraft Legends will take, expect to run the clock between 15-60 minutes, depending on what exactly goes down in the match. These PvP matches will see you face off in fights against other online players, so make sure you use the terrain to your advantage and get those wins.
