While the remake is much more linear than the original FF7, and you not be able to travel around quite as freely, you do have the option to revisit older chapters after clearing the game, so if you rushed through a certain chapter and missed items, or you want to enjoy a specific section again, clearing the game will allow you to do this.

How Many Hours Does it Take? | How Long to Beat

Clearing Main Story takes 20 hours

If you focus only on clearing the main story of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you can clear the game in roughly 20 hours.

Our walkthrough team cleared it in this time, but also ignored all side quests etc. and focused only on clearing the story, so it will probably take a bit longer if you play normally.

30 Hours+ Including Side Content

If you plan to do all side content, like quests, gathering and upgrading weapons, optional bosses and so on, it will probably take more than 30 hours.

Considering how this Remake covers only cover the story up to escaping from Midgard from the original FF7, it has quite a surprising amount of volume!

The Avalanche members have really been fleshed out and we believe fans of the original will enjoy this game a lot.

    • The gameplay isn't enough to scoff at either, even without talking about the story, I would say that this is one of the best games on the PS4

      If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
