Final Fantasy XVI is here exclusively on PlayStation 5, and the action-RPG marks a fresh take on a mainline entry for the long-running franchise. Historically, Final Fantasy games have had quite a long runtime because they’re story-driven and usually feature tons of optional content. FFXVI follows suit, but with this one leaning heavily towards action gameplay and a somewhat linear structure, so it may be a shorter effort depending on your approach. Whether you focus on story quests, embark on side quests, or participate in the various forms of optional content, here’s how long it will take FFXVI to complete.
