We're finally being treated to the long-awaited release of FromSoftware's Elden Ring on February 25th, and in addition to confirming the game has gone gold, the developer has revealed how long the game will take to complete.

As mentioned during an interview at the Taipei Game Show 2022, Yasuhiro Kitao (Producer on Elden Ring) suggested that we're looking at a minimum of 30 hours, but with potential for more (as transcribed by VGC):

“This will differ significantly by player, but in terms of targets set during development, the idea is that the main route should be able to be completed within around 30 hours."

“The game as a whole is quite massive and contains many dozens more hours’ worth of gameplay, but if we are talking about the main route only, it shouldn’t take much longer than that.”

Kitao went on to point out that due to "branching points near the end", it's impossible to 100% the game during your initial playthrough — and you'll also be able to transfer save data from one playthrough to your next one.

Elden Ring definitely looks like it's shaping up to be something special when it finally arrives for Xbox One, Series X and Series S in February. We've only got a month to wait now — but it's going to feel like forever.
