Most players should be able to finish Resident Evil Village in around 10 hours or so, according to IGN. Of course, this is a subjective estimate, as players may find themselves progressing faster or slower through different bits of content.

Resident Evil Village is the fourth-longest main series installment, following RE5 at 12 hours, RE4 at 16 hours, and RE6 at the very top with ~21.5 hours. It is closely followed by RE7: Biohazard, at nine hours total. The original 1996 Resident Evil and RE3 clock in at ~6.5 hours each—leaving RE2 as the shortest game in the lineup at just 6 hours flat.
