To help further dissect Anthem’s length, we’ve put together a quick guide on how long it’ll take you to beat the campaign in Anthem.

During our time in Anthem, it took us approximately 10 hours to complete all 21 missions. Note that others have reported completion times that vary between 10 hours to 15 hours in total. There are options to make it through the campaign faster, like skipping through cutscenes, but we don’t recommend this as you end up missing what’s arguably the best part of Anthem, its story.
Once you’ve completed the final mission, Return to the Heart of Rage, you’ll officially reach the Anthem credits screen. After that, you’re free to return to Anthem and enjoy its laundry list of end-game content as much as you like. Anthem is scheduled to release on February 22 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
