As is the case with any game, it's impossible to say the Cyberpunk 2077 length is exactly a specific amount of time, because everyone's experience will be different. We've completely beaten the game though, so can give some estimates for how long you'll spend playing as V and exploring Night City.

If you only want to play the main missions and absolutely nothing else, you can breeze through the story in about 15-20 hours. You'll miss out on most of the game this way and a lot of important aspects that tie in to the main story – which means you won't get the best ending – but you can beat the game this way.

If your intention is to play through the main story, plus most of the important side stuff, you'll be looking at slightly over double that time – likely 45-50 hours. This way, you're not 100%ing the game and clearing every single icon off the map, but you will have explored all the major narrative arcs and your decisions will determine the ending you get.

Finally, if you want to find everything, complete all gigs and side missions, buy all the vehicles and upgrades, and fully max out your character level, you can expect to spend maybe 80-100 hours in Cyberpunk 2077. Of course, this is determined by your skill level and the difficulty you play on, but we reckon that's about right for the average player. If you do play this way, you'll be set for the DLC and expansions that are bound to come out soon, but it is a huge undertaking. Good luck!

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, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
