How Long Does It Take To Complete Rage 2?

Rage 2 is out for all gamers to delve in the realm of intense combat and gore open world interactions. Still, many players and fans are speculating as to how much time is required to complete the entire game.

As many gamers are on the hook of deciding to purchase the title and desire to know how much time could they engage with the Rage 2 to absolutely accomplish every in-game challenge and quest.

Many gamers pre-ordered the Rage 2 title and have access to the title after launch. Such players have indicated that the Rage 2 complete walkthrough is relatively short.

Still, as the Rage 2 title is entirely new, players will require some additional time to explore each and every location in the open world environment. Moreover, various side missions would also keep the players busy for some additional time resulting in the extension of the total length of Rage 2 title.

Although many players and experts have hinted the walkthrough for Rage 2 requires 5 to 7 hours to complete; still, many players who have purchased the title are suggesting the length of the Rage 2 title fall somewhere in between 11 to 15 hours which includes all the side missions and challenges.   

In addition, if any player desires even further to extend the length of the Rage 2 gameplay can explore each and every aspect of new open world environment introduced in Rage 2 which would require players approximately a total of 30 hours.

Many would not consider the 30 hours to be quite ample time frame to enjoy an open world environment title, still considering the fact that 30 hours of gameplay is indeed far greater than the actual Rage 2 story length.

Surely the Rage 2 title is slightly short in gameplay length in comparison to various other open world titles available and many regular open world gamers would find it quite odd to undergo with such short story duration for such genre.

Still, if the gameplay of the new Rage 2 title manages to excite players, then it would automatically compensate for the length of the in-game story. As per the initial reviews and gameplay, players are suggesting the Rage 2 title to be quite indulging and player-centric which enables the gamer to decide the outcomes of the game.

But with the positive feedback, many reviewers do point out the lack of storyline and plot which disables players to have any great deals for the game and rather gamers should not have vague high hopes from the title. Let’s see how the Rage 2 performs amongst the plethora of other open world environment style games already available for players to choose from.
