Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider will take you around 15-20 hours to finish on the quick, and around double that if you want to get everything done.
Crystal Dynamics’ Lead Designer Mike Brinker revealed the game’s length in a recent interview, saying that for people who like to “run through the game” without exploring much or completing side-quests, it will take them around 15-20 hours. On the other side, for those who like to explore and collect everything, Rise of the Tomb Raider will offer around 30 -40 hours.
“Expect to spend around 30 -40 hours getting everything done. This is gathering every weapons, ability and completing every side quest. It all comes down to how you want to play through the game. Running through the game will take you around 15 – 20 hours. So expect double the play time collecting everything and exploring every secret tomb. In terms of scale, all our hub spaces, the areas that allow you to explore and choose your own way to play, have been increased by three time the size. So there will be lots more to see and do in each area of the game too. We have more challenge tombs, crypts, caves, and a bunch of extra things to do like the side missions for the Remnant people, and the tomb guardians.”
Rise of the Tomb Raider releases first on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10, then on PC and PS4 in 2016.
