Resident Evil Village Playtime Is Reportedly Longer Than 7 and 2 Remake

Around 15 hours would be perfect for me. Long enough to get invested into a playthrough but not too long as to make re-playing a chore.

I feel like I read that the estimated leg with is 15-20 hours depending on your skill and exploration.

Probably beat it pretty quick with assisted mode if you really wanted (I did this for my most recent 7 play through. Mostly because as I’ve gotten older I have much less time to replay harder areas of games over and over)

ID: gw6u39t

That would be perfect!

We'll considering neither of those were super long it's not surprising.

ID: gw5upbw

The question is, is it longer than a Leon+Claire RE2 playthrough or just one of them? I loved the demos for RE8 but it gave off a feeling of being short (30 min was enough to do a full clear of each area with thorough exploring).

ID: gw66dtr

Those were definitely no full areas, it was one courtyard in the village and a few rooms on the base floor of the castle+a small bit of dungeon. Both with tons of locked things we couldn't get the key items for.

Reportedly it's 16 hours or so for just the story, definitely long enough for me if that's the case.

ID: gw6178i

This is definitely just counting one of them

The RE4 vibes the game was putting off made me wonder if we’d see a RE4 length this time around too. Looks like we just might.

Every RE game is meant to be played at least twice. One play through for the scares. One play through for the secret items and alternate routes, etc.

I loved the length of 7. Felt tight and exciting, not padded out for the sake of it.

ID: gw799fe

I got so bored of it within an hour and deleted it off my PS5,

Edit: lol, look at these downvoting Capcom bitches

ID: gw7igan

I mean, we're comparing Resident Evil games to one another and you've come into the thread only to state that one of the best paced and most atmospheric entries in the series was so boring you deleted it, with nothing else of substance to add.

What kind of take did you think you were making?

You didn't really further nuanced discussion of the series so much as you just outed yourself as not being able to take part in it.

Hello, I am

, and I am a Capcom bitch.

ID: gw7ijvz

Like any game, it’s not for everyone. I get bored of any competitive shooter within an hour, but others can be entertained playing the same shooter for years. Both are the correct reaction.

Quality > Quantity

I hate the $ per hour metric gamers want these days. I understand why, I just don't like it.

ID: gw73ux4

Absolutely no one is going into RE games with the $ amount metric LOL. They historically are roughly 12 or so hours long, and shorter if you don’t go off searching.

ID: gw74yqj

I mean, people are. Clearly. There is an article about the length of the game and it has over 140 upvotes right now.

ID: gw8dwqy

With how tense RE7 was for me, I don’t think my heart could’ve lasted any longer than it was..

ID: gw8h42u

RE7 in VR...give me more.

ID: gw6yjzf

i think it is because we are older now and don’t have 8-10hrs to grind after class every day. hell, i spend 30-60min on a game and i feel like i time traveled.

ID: gw7pj84

idk man, RE4 length would be perfect

9 : Anonymous2021/04/28 11:02 ID: gw5pxxu

I could have sworn I read somewhere they said it was around 12 hours long.

ID: gw654eu

I think I read somewhere that it was the longest in the RE series—from 15 to 20 hours? Idk I’m not sure

10 : Anonymous2021/04/28 14:01 ID: gw68ad3

Hearing this is not particularly appealing to me. I prefer 'em shorter n' tighter these days.

RE2 Remake was actually a pretty perfect length for me.

11 : Anonymous2021/04/28 10:56 ID: gw5piiq

Wait is that combined or separately?

ID: gw5sqw9

I would assume it means separately, I think being longer than them combined would be too long for a game like this.

12 : Anonymous2021/04/28 17:04 ID: gw6y3i9

7 took me about 10 hours to beat and it dragged for about 2 of those

13 : Anonymous2021/04/28 17:04 ID: gw6y6uo

i always assume my first play through of any RE main installment will be around 8hrs. that’s how it’s been since the beginning.

14 : Anonymous2021/04/28 21:57 ID: gw83o4h

Someone will beat it in an hour with Rock Band drums.

Urgh 7 dragged in the end, hope this doesn’t have that issue.

16 : Anonymous2021/04/28 13:37 ID: gw65atf

hopefully longer than re4 : D

ID: gw6tbsh

That's just too long

17 : Anonymous2021/04/28 11:03 ID: gw5q0ox

I hope not insanely long, I do love replaying over and over again personally

ID: gw5qd4c

Yeah in my opinion I’d rather it be shorter because I love replaying RE games plus I’m so sick of games being like 20+ hours nowadays gets real boring. Short and sweet.

ID: gw5rft3

RE2R had it perfect, long enough if you take it slow to drink in the atmosphere or S+ ranked balls to the wall speedrunning, it handled both very well

18 : Anonymous2021/04/28 12:51 ID: gw5zxl8

I mean, RE games are built to be able to be speed runned. RE2 can be beat in 2 1/2 hours and RE7 can be beat in less than 4 so... Idk how to take this lmao.

ID: gw61ia1

I don’t understand why people keep bringing this up when talking about the length of the game lol. Like most people aren’t going to be speed running this game, especially not on their first play through.

ID: gw6fwg7

Because it’s hard to gauge a game’s “length” when it can be beaten in 3 hours with little to no effort.

ID: gw6fn7m

RE4 enters the chat...

For me, from RE1 to CVX games had perfect length. I like RE4 and finished it several times, but sections with enemy waves are my least favorite part of games and made it drag a bit too long.

19 : Anonymous2021/04/28 14:13 ID: gw69vxp

It’s at least six hours long. And that’s being generous with RE2R.

20 : Anonymous2021/04/28 14:49 ID: gw6eoce

that's good whatever how long it is i don't care.. because it's all about replay ability and speedruns that the main longevity of RE games

21 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:10 ID: gw6hlkj

That would be a delight - I need a "only about 15 hours" game. I just finished Days Gone yesterday, after playing it consistently from start to finish....for a month and a half. I need a more condensed game experience before diving back into a 3rd person game

22 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:32 ID: gw6kp08

I would hope so?

23 : Anonymous2021/04/28 16:26 ID: gw6sm7m

RE2 Remake on a blind hardcore first play through was the perfect length for me. Too much stress from horror games can outlive it’s welcome.

24 : Anonymous2021/04/28 18:32 ID: gw7atno

15 hours on a normal difficulty is good for me, can get it done in a weekend if I'm committed to it

26 : Anonymous2021/04/28 15:33 ID: gw6kv3r

Isn't because Village have CoD:Zombies mode which add more time to playthrough. It's easy 4-6 hours added to main campain.
