    The main story of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is approximately 40 hours long. Traversing through six massive regions, you’ll visit well over a dozen settlements and towns to explore. If you choose to just focus on the story and opt not to do any side content, you can clear the game in just under 40 hours.

    However, there are over 60 hours worth of side content available in the game. For that reason, the story can take over 100 hours to complete if you fulfill all side content requirements. Additionally, the difficulty setting chosen for your playthrough can alter your playtime. Easy, Normal, and Dynamic are all available at launch, so pick whichever you believe is best for you. It really depends on how you choose to play the game! We recommend taking your time and playing at your leisure, as this is an incredible title you don’t want to rush through.
