How Long Is the Campaign in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

In an interview with Game Informer earlier this month, director Hideaki Itsuno revealed that the campaign for Dragon’s Dogma 2 is about as long as that of its predecessor. While some lucky players have had the chance to dive into the game ahead of its launch next week, none can say exactly how long it might take to beat the main story.

That said, we can turn to HowLongToBeat for a rough estimate. The site polls avid gamers to measure average play times, so it’s a reliable tool in determining playthrough length. Looking at the average main story runs for Dragon’s Dogma, we can assume it will take roughly 37 hours to beat the second entry’s campaign.

How Long to Reach Completionist

In the same vein, we can’t say just yet how long it will take to reach completionist. However, Itsuno’s comments can lend us some insight on the matter. Using HowLongToBeat as a reference tool here, it’s safe to assume that completing side quests and picking up all collectibles will take upwards of 113 hours. You can tack on more or less depending on the individual player’s speed, though.

We’ll have more reliable estimates on file once the game launches in fill next week. For more on the upcoming title, check out these guides from our team:
