How long does it take to beat Wolfenstein: Youngblood?

Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the latest entry in the popular World War II series, aims to deliver a modern take on cooperative gameplay. Following the twin daughters of franchise protagonist BJ Blazkowicz, Youngblood creates an experience for a new generation of Nazi-slayers. You can complete the game either solo or with a partner, with each of you taking on the role of one of the sisters.

With its conservative $30 price tag, you may wonder just how much bang you'll get for your buck. One Machine Games exec answered that question, giving fans an official take on how many hours you can expect to spend with the first-person shooter.

According to executive producer Jerk Gustafsson, Wolfenstein: Youngblood features about 25 to 30 hours of playtime if you pursue its full lineup of content. Gustafsson shared this prediction during a recent interview with VentureBeat, calling the spinoff "our biggest game yet" despite its short production time.

"The story is lighter in content as well as tone," revealed Gustafsson. "But the level progression and the non-linear narrative gives us the ability to add a lot of activities and a lot of missions to do, so the total game time is actually longer than our previous titles. I think we're looking at at least 25 to 30 hours if you play through everything."

Based on his choice of words, it sounds like you can finish the game in less than 25 hours by barrelling through the main narrative. This would place the core campaign in the 10 to 15 hour range, reminiscent of other recent Wolfenstein titles. Youngblood places less of an emphasis on story than previous installments, shifting towards a "games as a service" model with a progression system and daily and weekly quests. These features, at least in theory, should increase its replayability. 

Wolfenstein: Youngblood released today, July 26 for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One
