“How long is Diablo 4?” is a tricky question to answer as your playstyle affects the answer, but getting through all eight Acts and more should take between 25 and 100 hours. If you’re just looking to reach the end of the story, it should take you fewer than 40 hours, but if you want to begin the true endgame at Level 50, or even get through the Paragon system to reach Level 100, you’re going to have to play a lot of Diablo 4 – over 100 hours or you could even say it never truly ends. Below you'll find a rough breakdown of how long is takes to beat Diablo 4 based on your playstyle and definition of “beating” the game.

As I’ve said, the time taken to beat Diablo 4 will vary massively based on what you consider to be completing the game and how much non-essential stuff you want to do:

  • Story only: 25-30 hours
  • Story + exploration and side activities: 40+ hours
  • Endgame level: 100+ hours

If you’re focusing on just the story and are playing on a lower Diablo 4 World Tier to make the game easier, you should be able to see the credits in less than 30 hours. However, if you’re willing to delve into dungeons, fill your Diablo 4 quest log with side quests, and see as much of the Diablo 4 map as possible, before reach the story’s finale, you’ll easily spend over 40 hours doing so.

Finally, if you want to go beyond the story and Level 50 to progress through the Diablo 4 Paragon board to level 100, your total playtime will likely shoot into the hundreds of hours. If you don’t consider completing the story the end of the game, Diablo 4 pretty much has no end as the limitless grinding and live service fixings means there’s always something to chase – and if you get bored, you can start over with a new character class!
