The 2.1 “A Realm Awoken” patch coming on the 17th to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be a veritable monster, with multiple new dungeons, housing, PvP and much more. But just how much time will it take us to consume all that juicy content? Quite a lot, if we believe what Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida said during an interview on Game Watch.
If you play with the premise of “enjoying all the content,” I think it can take up to 300 hours. If you play more like “pick it up and take a bite here and there,” there’s enough for 80 hours.
Please just think of it like buying one of the new games that come out in the holidays or around the new year. I think the volume is pretty similar.
Yoshida-san also mentioned that the extension to the main story quest will be about 10 hours long. Looks like Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn players are going to be quite busy soon.
