Thanks to an FAQ on the official Outriders site, we know that on average, the Outriders length is "25-30 hours". Sure, some players will blast through that over a long weekend, but for other more patient player and those looking to grind the Outriders campaign for loot, that playtime couldtake a few weeks.

As we mentioned, it all depends on how you play the game; the FAQ clarifies that the 25-30 hour ballpark is only for those who play through the Outriders campaign once, with a single class. However, if you tackle all of the side quests, post-campaign, and additional content, or play alt classes and characters you can easily double that playtime. Triple it if you start replaying missions at higher world tiers to get better loot.

Outriders is designed to be played however you like too, so don't worry if you're not the sort of person to grind out missions for slightly improved gear. You can find a lot of enjoyment by simply playing through the campaign once, whether you're solo or with some pals. And for what it's worth, the narrative is actually pretty strong and more than a good enough reason to pick it up.

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1 2020, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager 2020, clicking on heads in Valorant, or mowing down hordes of enemies in Outriders.
