How long is Starfield?

With Starfield now out in the open, the main quest will take approximately 17 hours to complete. This is much less time than other Bethesda titles.

However, considering the fact that there'll be up to 1,000 planets to explore in the game, in addition to the four Starfield cities that Howard confirmed will be in the game, it'll take even more time to complete every single thing there is to do in the Starfield universe.

If you plan on completing all of the side quests available, players can expect to spend at least 52 hours to finish it fully.

Ultimately, you can take as long as you like to complete Starfield as there's so much to explore.

That's it for our look at Starfield's length! For even more on the game, check out whether the game has multiplayer, as well as how the character creator will work.
