It's a constant: Xenoblades are extremely long games and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is right up there with the average seen on XC1 and XC2. Expect to play for hours on a titanic map, full of more or less interesting quests and dozens of shiny points to collect to acquire all kinds of resources necessary to complete the encyclopedia cards. In this article, you will find our estimates on the lifespan of the game according to its degree of completion.
Easy Mode Story Rush
Without worrying about the side quests or even the heroes you may encounter during the adventure, all in easy mode, completing Xenoblade Chronicles 3 should take you roughly 40 to 50 hours .

As usual, we will advise against opting for this way of playing if you want to take advantage of all that XC3 has to offer: its exploration is always well rewarded and your involvement in the life of the colonies is secondary content that could possibly interest you.
Normal game by unlocking all heroes
It will take you about 80 hours to see all of XC3's most interesting content. Heroes unlock classes and are among the best side quest threads in all of Xenoblade Chronicles 3. side quests, this will also allow you to earn large amounts of bonus experience, always good to take when you are a bit tight against certain boss posts.
You will need 120-130 hours of gameplay to see all of the content. And you'll have to hang on: Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has daunting content and a world map made up of huge areas in which you'll have to complete numerous Fedex quests and improve the links between communities, again thanks to the sociogram. There is also the crafting of the different gems which can take a lot of time, but they will be very useful when you go to face the most nasty elite enemies of Aionios. For those who want to go even further, please note that the time of fights against elites is recorded and can be attempted to be improved at any time.
