Wondering how long it takes to to beat The Last of Us 2? While there are 11 chapters the time it takes to complete them all really depends on how you play and what you want to do with your time. There's a lot of convoluted pacing, perspectives and twists that can also make it hard to tell where you really are in the story as well. SO whether you want a time before you commit, or just want to know how much farther there is to go - here's the full length of The Last of Us Part 2 and how long it'll take to complete.
How long is The Last of Us Part 2?
The Last of Us Part 2's campaign length is about 20 to 30 hours, across 11 distinct chapters. The variance all comes from whether you plan to just follow the story, or take a more completionist approach to all the collectibles and things to see.
For example, I played on medium difficulty and found about 80% of the various The Last of Us 2's collectibles, while carefully stealthing my way through most of the game's combat encounters. My final save came in at the 22 hour mark. By comparison, guides managing editor Leon Hurley saw completion at 32 hours, having explored every nook and cranny of Naughty Dog's levels for 100% completion, including lots of backtracking to make sure he hadn't missed anything.
