RESIDENT Evil 4 remake has just been released, and players are excited to dive in.

But with so many amazing games that were released this year already, you might be wondering how long you will need to finish it.

There is plenty of monsters to fight.

Whether you are hoping to speed through the main story, or go for 100% completion, we’ve got all you need to know.

Here’s how long it will take to complete the Resident Evil 4 remake.

Resident Evil 4 remake: How long to beat the main story

How long you need to complete the Resident Evil 4 remake will depend on whether you intend to watch the cutscenes or not.

The gameplay will take you 12-15 hours, but the cutscenes are quite lengthy and should add on a few more hours.

There are 16 chapters in total all with varying lengths and a different number of cutscenes.

The Resident Evil 4 remake also has a lot of collectibles for you to find. The more you hunt for, the longer it will take.

After you finish the main story, you can save your completed file and start all over again in New Game +.

This is far quicker than your initial run through, as you will have better equipment and will know your way around.

If you collected a number of upgrades in your first playthrough, you should be able to complete it in 5 hours.

Professional mode unlocks after your first run, which makes enemies tougher, and forces you to rely on manual saves.

This obviously will take more time, depending on your level of skill.

If you’re hoping to complete all of the side quests, and get all of the collectibles, it will take you around 20-25 hours.

However, there are a number of things that you can only unlock after multiple playthroughs.

To get all of these, you will likely need 60-70 hours.
