This page of the GTA 5 guide will answer the question how long does it take to complete the game (following your chosen playstyle). Depending on your playstyle, the game may take more or less of your time.
- As a fully-fledged sandbox, Grand Theft Auto 5 offers a very large and open world. GTA 5 is almost impossible to finish in a shorter amount of time, especially that you can free roam, which means traveling across Los Santos without completing storyline or side missions. The main storyline takes up about 30 hours.
- Nevertheless, the story is not all there is, as you can engage in side missions. If we decide to complete all tasks in game, the game will last you about 50 hours.
- Hardcore players can even add additional hours to their playtime, as you can engage in unlocking trophies or visiting various landmarks. In that case, the game will last 80 hours, or more.
- And that's only the single player mode. GTA 5 also offers multiplayer mode GTA Online which can bring a lot of fun, taking additional hours. It is difficult to say how many hours does the multiplayer mode last, but it 180 - 200 hours is a good estimate.
