On this page of our guide to Death Stranding we provide information on how long it takes to complete the game. We have prepared several different values depending on whether you want to focus only on the main story or whether you also want to get interested in extra activities to get the platinum trophy.
- Death Stranding is a relatively long game. It should take you 40-60 hours to complete the main plot. In our case, it took us 45 hours to complete the game for the first time.
- The estimated time of gameplay is influenced by many additional factors. The most important of these is the in-game world exploration. You can significantly improve your game progress by using vehicles and playing online, in which many useful objects and structures are made available by other players.
- Optional activities have a great influence on the time spent with the game. The most important optional activities include side missions, building your own constructions, expanding the road network, searching for collectibles (memory cards) and delivering additional cargos abandoned by other players.
- Death Stranding offers four basic difficulty levels, which may affect your total gameplay time. There are no extreme survival-like difficulty levels in the game. However, you can try the other way around and choose a low or very low difficulty level. These allow you to deal with BTs and MULES in a much easier way. The same applies to bosses. Also, lowest difficulty levels reduce the risk of death or mission failure.
