As is the case with most open world games with lots of filler content, Ghost of Tsushima is a long game. If you spend as much time with the breathtaking photo mode as we did, you can expect the hours to start piling up. As a general baseline though, you're looking at 50-60 hours to 100% complete Ghost of Tsushima and earn the platinum trophy. That's how long it took me to complete everything, including finding all artefacts and collectibles.

If you only want to beat the main story however, expect to spend much less time with the game. You're probably looking at 20-25 hours if you only do story missions. Want to mainly focus on the story but also pick up side quests here and there, along with most of the Mongol camps to reveal the map? Around 35-40 hours would be a solid estimation.

Again, your experience may differ depending on what difficulty you play on, how slowly you explore the world, and if you fast travel or saunter everywhere on horseback. One thing's for certain though; don't expect to breeze through Ghost of Tsushima in a weekend.

How many acts are in Ghost of Tsushima?

Ghost of Tsushima has three separate acts, each of them linked to the three regions of Tsushima island; Izuhara, Toyotama, and Kamiagata. When you reach a certain point in the third act, the entire island will open up so you can travel wherever you like, but there will be a short while when you'll only be able to explore Kamiagata. We recommend doing the main story missions as quickly as possible at that point so you can get back to exploring everywhere.

Is there a Ghost of Tsushima New Game Plus mode?

Unfortunately, Ghost of Tsushima does not have New Game Plus. It's something that may well be added post-launch like other games have seen in the past but for the time being, that isn't available. You can earn every single trophy for the platinum in one playthrough though, so don't worry about having to go back and re-play parts of the game to mop up the final trophies.
