A Plague Tale: Innocence from Asobo Studio is heartwarming — if at times harrowing — tale of siblings on the run from the Inquisition and a very deadly plague of rats. Keeping yourself and your brother Hugo alive is no easy feat, but is it a time-consuming one? Many potential buyers are no doubt keen to learn how long it takes to beat A Plague Tale: Innocence, either to learn if the length is worth their wallets, or if they can complete in their limited time.

The main story of A Plague Tale: Innocence will likely take most players between 10-12 hours with a little bit of exploration, crafting and collectible hunting. A Plague Tale is a linear game largely focused on sneaking past enemies and solving puzzles to progress through environments. To that end, players who struggle with the stealthy style may see that time rise notably. Likewise, puzzles can be subjective in difficulty so some players may find themselves stumped for a bit, though we rarely found the tasks presented all too challenging.

If you’re looking to finish up a completionist run, you could easily see that count rise to 15-20 hours, depending on whether or not you’re following a guide. A Plague Tale: Innocence’s collectibles include gifts, flowers and curiosities that are enjoyable to hunt down, and while many aren’t far from the main path, some of them will require a bit of clever exploration to find. If you’re wanting to hasten their collection, read our guides to all Gift locations and all Hugo’s Herbarium locations in A Plague Tale: Innocence.

Those adroit at slingshotting and stealth who have little interest in picking up collectibles will definitely be able to cut their completion time down significantly. Much of A Plague Tale’s excellence is in its characters and gorgeous environments, but if you’re planning to race through the game then we could easily see it finished in 8 hours or less.

To summarise:

  • Average: 10-12 hours
  • Completionist: 15-20 hours
  • Speedy: 8 hours
