Road 96 is quite unlike most other games you’ll play right now. The entire thing is procedurally generated, with the player encountering different characters in different scenarios at random throughout their trip to the border of the politically divided country of Petria. The game boasts that “no one’s road is the same” and as such, some players may be wondering just how long Road 96 takes to beat.
How Long It Takes to Beat Road 96
To reach the credits and ‘beat’ Road 96, you’ll need to take around seven trips to the border with different characters. This should ensure you see most of what each of the game’s six different meetable characters has to offer, unlock all the abilities in the game and see what happens come election day.
It took us about 10 hours to reach the end of Road 96 and see the credits roll. After beating the game once and seeing the ending (determined by the choices you make along the way), you’ll then unlock New Game+, which allows you to carry over all the abilities that you’ve unlocked into a fresh playthrough.
We estimate this will take you another 10 hours or so to beat the game in New Game+, though from our experience, many of the encounters did end up being the same as those we’d played in our first playthrough.
As such, your mileage with Road 96 depends on whether you’re desperate to experience it all again to make different decisions and try and get a different ending.
The game has multiple endings that determine the fate of Petria, and which one you get is decided by the choices you make along the way, what you say to characters and your success rates with crossing the border.
That’s everything you need to know regarding how long Road 96 takes to beat. If you’re looking for more on the game, be sure to read our review here, or see more of our coverage below.
