If you want to know how long Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is then I can fully understand, because we're all aware of how much the Final Fantasy series as a whole loves its epic storylines and huge worlds that can take many hours to fully explore. Unsurprisingly, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth continues this tradition with 14 story chapters to work through, along with a wide array of optional Odd Job side quests and challenges that can swallow up your time if you throw yourself into them. While your individual experience may vary to a degree, I've put together this overview of how long to beat Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth so you can get a general idea of the commitment you'll need to give it.

The answer to how long it will take to finish Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth depends significantly on your approach to the game, as the scope of it is huge and there are many side quests along with myriad challenges to beat. If you solely focus on the main story and push through with minimal distractions then you can finish it in around 40 to 50 hours, though one of my colleagues managed to reach the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth ending it in about 35 hours at a push. If you're looking for a fuller experience while reaping the additional benefits from completing side quests and exploring the wider world, then that will significantly increase your playtime to around 70 to 75 hours, and if you're going for full completion of all challenges, from combat simulations to becoming a Queen's Blood master, then you'll need to commit over 100 hours to the cause.

So, how long is Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth in summary:

  • 35-50 hours for just the main story
  • 70-75 hours for the story plus side quests and exploration
  • 100+ hours for full completion
