Motive Studio's Dead Space remake launched on Jan. 27, 2023, and players might be wondering just how long it takes to complete.

A remake of EA's 2008 survival horror game of the same name, Dead Space launched just last week and fans have been eager to get stuck in. The remake retains the same plot as the original, but has been developed on EA's Frostbite engine, previously used to develop Star Wars: Squadrons and the single-player campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II. 

The game features new and redesigned assets, character models and environments, all to take advantage of modern console systems.

Throughout its runtime, the original Dead Space packed in plenty of horrific scenes and high-tension moments. So does the remake run for a similar amount of time?

How Long Does Dead Space Remake Take to Complete?

Dead Space remake takes roughly 12 hours to complete if you're taking the a direct route through the main story. The game features 12 chapters, each one taking roughly an hour to move through. The remake runs roughly as long as the original game.

Dead Space's additional side missions don't deviate too much from the game's main path, either. Players can expect these missions to take an additional hour or two.
