How long is Resident Evil 4 Remake?

Resident Evil 4 Remake is a game that will demand quite a bit of your time, but it’s not unbearably long. According to most people who got their hands on the game early, it should take you somewhere between 12-15 hours to run through the main story campaign on your first run. Of course, this time can vary depending on your skill and familiarity, but that was the general consensus. If you are going for a completionist run, the time spent seems to be closer to the 25-30 hours mark.

Comparing RE4’s Remake to the original game, the two seem to be similar in how long the story lasts. According to, the original game took most people about 15.5 hours on a normal run and up to 31 hours for completionists. The new version isn’t supposed to change the experience radically, so this news is not shocking.

If you are just looking to get the story and say you experience Resident Evil 4, you can probably get through what you need in about a dozen hours. If you find yourself engrossed enough in the game that you want to complete a bunch of side content, it seems you can easily double that time. Regardless, the RE4 Remake should make you happy if you are a horror fan.
