Expert Verified By

Around 100 Hours of Gameplay For Completionists!

Story Highlights
  • The anticipated Dragon’s Dogma 2 is finally arriving this month.
  • Capcom’s latest marketing beat reveals it will offer around 37 hours of story content.
  • Those interested in completing side quests will find up to 100 hours of content.

This year has already been a treat for RPG enthusiasts, with releases like Persona 3 Reload, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. Capcom is joining this group on March 22, releasing Dragon’s Dogma 2.

The game has recently received new previews, confirming details like the frame rate. Additionally, Capcom states this RPG will take up at least 37 hours of your playtime.

Why it matters: This should be more than enough content to justify the $70 price since this title is Capcom’s first game to cost $70 at launch.

The director of the game, Hideaki Itsuno, revealed the length via an interview with GameInformer. He described that the story length has not changed much from its predecessor, confirming that fans should expect a similar playtime.

The playtime shouldn’t change that dramatically from the first game.

This means that Dragon’s Dogma 2 will require around 37 hours to complete. Like any other RPG, completing the main story will equate to scratching the surface, with even more content awaiting the players.

Director Hideaki Itsuno confirms that the map is littered with interesting NPCs, quests, and areas to explore. Therefore, this playtime can be doubled or even tripled for players looking to experience everything Dragon’s Dogma 2 has to offer.

Overall, completionists might need to spend 100 hours in this world.

It is important to note that these estimates were calculated by the average playtime from Dragon’s Dogma. The director did not point out a specific number of hours, choosing to compare it with the previous game for a better estimate.

According to HowLongToBeat, a 37-hour playthrough is the typical length for the original game’s story, with most people requiring around 50 hours since they explore both side-content and the story.

Nonetheless, the game is already shaping up to be a huge success for Capcom. Barring a few criticisms like the performance, general reactions to recent previews have been nothing short of excellent.

Meanwhile, the RPG recently began shooting up on Steam’s best-seller charts, setting the stage for its success on launch day.
