Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Main Scenario Story length

If you’re looking to only play through through the Main Scenario Story of FF7 Rebirth, expect it to take about 35ish hours. This includes the Prologue Chapter and all 14 Chapters of the story. Also, it seems as though each chapter gets progressively longer, with the last two chapters of the game taking quite a few hours each to complete.

According to HowLongToBeat, the current average time to beat the story at the time of this post is 35.5 hours. The fastest time is about 30 hours, and the longest story-only time is about 40 hours.

Of course, this time can vary based on whether you actually stop to do ANY side-content in FF7 Rebirth, or even if you take some time to grind and level up Characters, Weapons, or Materia.

How long to do all the optional content in FF7 Rebirth

For those looking to do everything Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has to offer including the optional content, side quests, mini-games, and more, expect to be 100+ hours. In fact, depending on skill level, it can take even longer.

I personally had about 80 hours in the game when I completed it, which included doing all optional content in the first three open-world regions, but none in the final three. If I wanted to truly do everything including the other three regions and everything Gold Saucer had to offer, it would have probably been another 30 or more.

So, once again, mileage may vary depending on what exactly you are looking to do. In the event you want to platinum the FF7 Rebirth, you can probably add another 30 hours or so on top as a trophy requires you to beat the game on Expert Difficulty which is only unlocked after beating the game once. Therefore, it will require two playthroughs to get the platinum trophy.

In the end, how long FF7 Rebirth is will truly depend on what content you want to complete. For those just trying to blitz through the story, you might be able to finish in a few dozen hours. For completionists, you might reach well over 100.
