How Long is Resident Evil 8?

The report comes from a noted industry insider know as AestheticGamer on Twitter. They state that Resident Evil 8 will have the longest game time ever for the series. They also suggest that the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake will have an extended duration, and that this will be the trend for the series going forward.

Resident Evil games typically take around 8-10 hours to complete the campaign. If Resident Evil 8 is the longest entry to the series, this means that the story mode will likely exceed 10 hours. No specific game duration has been provided.

Capcom has stated that Resident Evil 8 will be considered an open-world game. This means that there could be hours of side missions and additional content along with the main story. For completionists, Resident Evil 8 could potentially have 20+ hours of total gameplay.

Resident Evil 8 is set for release on Friday, May 7. When purchasing the game on PS4 or Xbox One, a next-gen upgrade is included for free.
