A guide on the playtime for Resident Evil Village. Read on to find out about the main story's length, how long it will take to finish fighting Optional Bosses, finding Treasures, doing Side Activities, and how much time completing all achievements will add to your playthrough!
List of Contents
At a leisurely pace on "Standard" difficulty while doing side activities such as destroying Goats of Warding or finding Treasures will have players spend around 8 to 10 hours of playtime.
Playing on "Casual" difficulty will also take less time, with more time spent for the harder difficulties.

There are several side activities for you to do in Resident Evil Village, these include destroying Goats of Warding, finding Treasures, solving Labyrinth Puzzles, and reading Files. These can add up to 2 hours to your first time playthrough, depending on how dedicated you are to finding each collectible.

On subsequent playthroughs where you know where Key Items are and how to do certain puzzles, it can take 3 hours or less to beat the game. In fact, there is an Achievement for doing so: the Dashing Dad Trophy is unlocked once the story is completed within this short time frame, although it is quite difficult to do on a fresh game rather than on New Game+.
Players who have completed the game will be pleased to know that there are several things that become available to them after finishing the main story. These include Figures and Concept Art they can view, Weapons they can use for a second or third playthrough of the game, and even the long awaited Mercenaries mode.
