Hyrule Warriors serves as a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, depicting events that happened 100 years before the latter. With a diverse cast at their disposal, players take on the role of fighting hordes of monsters, Yiga clansmen, and other baddies with the aim of stopping the rise of Calamity Ganon. With any narrative-focused game, players may be wondering just how long it takes to beat it. After all, you probably have tons of games in your backlog to get to. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you estimate how long you’ll be spending on Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.


How long does it take to beat Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity?



It will take you an average of approximately 21 hours to finish the main story of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. That means beating all seven chapters of the game. However, you can beat it in about 20 hours if you rush it, or even as many as 22 hours if you take your time. You might have loftier goals than just finishing the main campaign; if so, it’ll take considerably longer to finish up the whole game.

If you want to 100% complete Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, you’re looking at about 25 hours of playtime. This means collecting all Korok seeds, completing all side-quests and optional missions, and unlocking all playable characters. You can rush it in about 22 hours, and if you want to take your time, in about 28 hours.

Curious how we came up with those estimates? We actually didn’t: You can thank How Long to Beat for that! They polled hundreds of gamers and asked them how long it took for them to complete Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity based on their individual play styles. Then they averaged up all the times they gave.

Here’s a table that’s (possibly) easier to understand, showing estimated completion times for both finishing the story and 100%-ing the game — plus what you’ll need to do for both.
