Starfield's Main Quest Will Take Around 30-40 Hours To Complete

Bethesda's Todd Howard has been speaking to IGN today in a massive interview about all things Starfield, confirming during the discussion that the main story campaign in the game will take around 30 to 40 hours to complete.

This means, according to Howard, that the main campaign without any side content is around 20% bigger than games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, simply due to having more quests included this time:

"This one’s ending up a little bit longer [than our previous games] and we may tune that some still. It’s more quests, so it might be 20% more than our previous ones."

Howard also mentioned during the interview that Starfield includes more handcrafted content than any other Bethesda game, it has four main cities including the biggest the studio has ever made, and its "unique" space combat is actually inspired by FTL: Faster Than Light and the classic MechWarrior series!
