How Long is Fallout 4?

Bethesda Game Studios are known for its large and immersive open worlds. As the name suggests, Fallout 4 is the fourth main entry in the Fallout universe after the enormous success of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, which were developed by Obsidian Entertainment. Fallout 4 is a massive open-world game with branching storylines.

You can spend countless hours just exploring every nook and crannies of wasteland instead of completing the main campaign. As the game allows you to play however you want without any restrictions, you are free to explore all the areas without even interacting with any NPCs.

Fallout 4’s main campaign can be finished in just under 27 hours, but if you want to complete all aspects of the game, from completing all side quests to finding all the collectibles, it will take you more than 150 hours to do so. There are also 3 DLCs with their own main campaigns and side quests.

  1. Automatron

How Long It Takes To Beat Fallout 4?

Just like previous Bethesda games, you can have one of four possible endings by joining one of four major factions of Fallout 4: The Minutemen, The Institute, The Railroad, and Brotherhood of Steel. 

Finishing The Main Campaign

Unlike previous games, the Fallout 4 ending cutscene does not change based on how the Sole Survivor has finished most side quests or interacted with NPCs. You can complete almost all quests for all four factions until a certain point where you will have to side with one of four factions and decide the fate of wasteland.

If you side with The Institute you will have to complete the Nuclear Family questline. All other factions give the player the same The Nuclear Option quest separately but depending upon which faction you side with, the outcome of every single quest will be different.
