Starfield is a one of a kind game that comes with tons of content that makes it stand out among other RPGs. The entire galaxy is your playground and that is something which we are going to witness for the first time.
Games like these usually have a long enough playtime for you to keep at it for months. And we all know how detailed the Bethesda RPGs typically are.
So if you are wondering how long is the story or the main campaign, you have come to the right place.
How Long is the Starfield Main Story
If you are not new to RPGs, you would know that the side content is the one that matters the most. They potentially give you better rewards and XP. The main missions just help you progress through the story and unlock more side missions.
Therefore talking about how long an RPG is could be pretty debatable considering how much you are willing to grind. Some just beat the main story and stop playing, while some would just keep grinding for hours without even realizing it.
Starfield is a game that gives you so much depth that I am pretty sure users won’t just go away after completing the main story. There are thousands of locations to be discovered and each of these places holds some sort of significance to the game.
So, according to sources, the main campaign of Starfield is estimated to have a playtime of around 35 to 40 hours. This is without adding up the side content and the time required for grinding.
This is also more than the previous Bethesda RPGs like Skyrim and Fallout 4. If you add up the side content I could see users grinding for hundreds of hours.
Along with the main story, there will also be an expansion that would increase the overall playtime of the campaign. However, that would be a DLC, and not everyone would have access to that. We are yet to know how long the DLC content will be. We will update this guide as we receive news.
That is all you need to know about how long the main campaign of Starfield is going to be.
