How Long Does it Take to Beat Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

How long is a piece of string?

If you’re playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, or thinking of jumping into it, you might be wondering how long it’ll take you to complete. There’s no straightforward answer, but we can give you a ballpark. So, how long does it take to beat Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

Like all open world games, there’s a lot to do in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. But unlike many of them, there’s no one clear-cut ‘story’ path to follow. Valhalla has multiple narrative strands to follow, often with several tasks to complete, all as equally important as each other.

There’s also the fact that the game’s world is so vast it’s almost impossible not to get distracted by a side quest or secret.

For players who try their hardest to just complete the ‘main’ quests in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’ll find yourself reaching the game’s conclusion in around 40 hours. That mileage will of course vary from player to player. You might be able to whizz through it somewhat quicker, but this is a game that wants you to take your time.

Rushing through means you’ll miss a lot of what the game has to offer – and in Valhalla more than most games, much of the ‘side’ content is just as important as anything else. Play the game at a steady pace, taking in a mixture of story and side content, and you’ll likely get 60 to 70 hours out of the game, with some content still to go.

Needless to say, it’s a game that provides excellent value for money based on the amount of playtime it can provide. It’s also an excellent game – which means you’ll likely want to spend those 60-70 hours with it.
