We got to know about about many things about the upcoming Tomb Raider but have no idea whats the length/duration of the game will be. In case if you’re wondering and want an answer. We’re glad today we can provide you with an official answer from Crystal Dynamics.


Pixel Vulture published and interview in which the Rise of the Tomb Raider lead designer talked about the topic. Here it is what he said :

Expect to spend around 30 -40 hours getting everything done. This is gathering every weapons, ability and completing every side quest. It all comes down to how you want to play through the game. Running through the game will take you around 15 – 20 hours. So expect double the play time collecting everything and exploring every secret tomb. In terms of scale, all our hub spaces, the areas that allow you to explore and choose your own way to play, have been increased by three time the size. So there will be lots more to see and do in each area of the game too. We have more challenge tombs, crypts, caves, and a bunch of extra things to do like the side missions for the Remnant people, and the tomb guardians.



So from the statement we are looking at great game that isn’t open world but still offers 15 hours of gameplay which is still amazing. And well yeah if you went on exploring and scavenging and look out for collectibles the game length and go up to 20-30 hours. Plus few days ago we also came to know from some leaks that the size of Rise of the Tomb Raider will be around 20.47GB.
