How Long Monster Hunter World Is and How Many Chapters There Are
Monster Hunter World has finally arrived and sees the series making its way to Microsoft and Sony’s current home consoles for the first time. With four-player co-op and some of the largest maps the series has seen to-date, many fans will be eager to sink their teeth into this meaty action-RPG adventure. With the series being known for offering a decent-sized story with plenty of distractions to keep you playing long after you’ve reached the final quest, many are wondering if Monster Hunter World continues this trend.
Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter World is by no means a short game. Speaking with German online magazine Mein-MMO, Monster Hunter World’s producer Ryozo Tsujimoto said that the game will take about 40 to 50 hours to beat for the average player. He added, however, that players will likely spend more playtime continuing to craft and upgrade their gear after finishing the story. Having beaten the game ourselves, we can confirm that it took us about 45 hours to hit the credits. We focused mainly on the story, but took on some side quests and other distractions along the way. If you want to see absolutely everything the game has to offer, you’re looking more at 70-80 hours.
On top of that, it’s worth noting that the game will also benefit from free updates and weekly event quests to help keep players coming back to the experience.
The 40-50 hour story of Monster Hunter World is split over 25 quests. The amount of time you spend in each will likely vary depending on how you find the challenge and whether or not you want to see everything each world has to offer. In that sense, there’s a good chance you could spend upwards of 70 hours in the game depending on how much of a completionist you are.
