Kitao-san revealed that there’s plenty more content tucked away in Elden Ring beyond the main route (presumably meaning just the main campaign with no side quests), and that the 30-hour figure is just a rough estimate and may differ from player to player.
This will differ significantly by player, but in terms of targets set during development, the idea is that the main route should be able to be completed within around 30 hours. The game as a whole is quite massive and contains many dozens more hours’ worth of gameplay, but if we are talking about the main route only, it shouldn’t take much longer than that.
Elden Ring has officially gone gold and is on track to hit its February 25, 2022 release on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
