According to GameSpot, the game’s length varies greatly with your play style and goals. Therefore, the faster players can complete the game in about 30 hours. On the other hand, discovering everything in the game will take you 80 hours.
As usual, your experience will depend on how you play it. Some people prefer to stick to the main story and call it a day. Others like to dissect every bit of content in their games. Naturally, the former will take much less to complete than the latter.

So, how long is FFXVI for those focused on the main plot only? Well, strictly sticking to the main quests will net you around 30 hours. Yes, it’s still pretty long. But, the game has dungeons, bosses, and more. That takes time.
However, some players still like to complete side quests. And, they’re pretty important in the 16th installment. In this case, you might take up to 50 hours to complete it. That’s the most likely experience for many. Moreover, side quests net you the Chocobo mount. Are you foregoing the Chocobo mount?

Finally, we have those who want to squeeze out everything the game has to offer. That includes every bit of the side content. However, what you define as significant content for your completion may vary.
For starters, we have the Hunt Board. Hunting all the targets will take the experience up to 55 hours tops. These only offer extra XP and crafting materials. But, they won’t add a lot if you’re already done with the quests.
The combat challenges are a completely different story, though. These challenges grade your runs on dungeons and battles. To get top scores on all of them, plan for a dozen hours or so. Completing the New Game+ will also add another dozen hours. Overall, full-blown completionists are looking at 80 hours or more.
