How long is the main quest in Starfield? W don’t know exactly the exact length of the main quest in Starfield. However, we have some theories.
How long is the main quest in Starfield?
That amount of dialogue is more than double compared to Skyrim and well above Fallout 4. While the main bulk of the planets is randomly generated, for that amount of dialogue, questing and interaction, the main hub cities must be beaming with life, choices, and options to complete the story. In the IGN interview, Todd gives an estimate of the length of the main story quest.
So, it (Starfield) might be 20% more than our previous ones…this one might be in the 30h, maybe 40h just for the main quest.Todd Howard, executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios
With 30-40 hours of main story quest, you’ll get a lot more main story than previous Bethesda titles. The games were storytelling, and choices had you wanting to play another campaign to see if you changed your decision or how that would affect your playthrough. This model is core to Bethesda games, and even with a long campaign, the choices will drive players back to the character creation screen again.
Bethesda also has a knack for morally grey storytelling. Their best writing comes when you must choose a faction, a quest, or something where there is no right answer. Sometimes just like in life, you need to use your gut to make a split-second decision and let it play out. Unlike real life, however, you can go back and change the decision and see how it plays out. While 30-40 hours is great, I think the great replayability will be just how the story plays out.
Starfield’s release date is set for September 6, 2023. We’ll continue to add more information here as it becomes available!
