How Long Does It Take To Beat Godfall?

As one of the first PlayStation 5 exclusives, Godfall has been catching a lot of attention for meeting the launch day release that many AAA titles have missed. Counterplay Games' first high profile title incorporates new features of the PlayStation 5, such as haptic feedback, while introducing a spin on the loot shooter genre — the loot slasher.

In Godfall, players fight monsters and look for high-value weapons with gameplay that takes cues from looters like Diablo and Borderlands and Destiny. Different weapons have different styles of attacks — a Northern and a Southern technique – which encourages experimentation and could create diverse approaches to gameplay.

While reviews so far have been somewhere in the middle, Godfall has received praise as a visually and technically competent experience with something of a depth vacuum. However, for some gamers, the question is, how long will that visually and technically competent experience last? Let's take a look at how long it takes to beat Godfall.

Godfall is shorter than God of War

Shacknews accompanied its review of Godfall with a straightforward estimate of 15-20 hours to complete the game. This estimate considers the 10-12 hour primary campaign while adding in time to explore the main world's secrets. Exploring the Tower of Trials, which players can access to unlock new gear and level characters up, adds to the overall run time.

This report lines up with statements made by a community manager, ThanatosNoa, on the Godfall Reddit page. Answering questions about the inclusion of a campaign in the main game, ThanatosNoa told fans to expect the main story to be shorter than a God of War game. Considering that 2018's God of War took about 20-30 hours to beat, Shacknews' estimate seems to be in the right ballpark.

Another thing to consider is Counterplay Games' commitment to providing a fully realized experience out of the box. That means that there are no random loot boxes to purchase and not much in the way of a DLC roadmap to look forward to. While that will probably be refreshing to gamers tired of being bothered to buy microtransactions, it will put a hard cap on how much there is to do in the game.
