How long does it take to beat DOOM Eternal on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch? Well, it sounds like it's going to take as long as 2016's DOOM did, maybe a bit longer. According to executive producer on the game, Marty Stratton, the single-player campaign of the demon-slaying action-shooter will be about 18-22 hours long for a "pretty complete playthrough." In other words, a completionist playthrough may be a drop longer, while a bum-rush on the easiest mode may be a bit shorter. Of course, player skill and difficulty level come into play as well. So, it sounds like the average playthrough will take about 20 hours long.
As you may know, 2016's DOOM -- which Eternal is a sequel too -- took about 11-12 hours to beat if you just focused on the main missions. However, if you did some of the extra content on the side, it was more like 16 hours long. Meanwhile, if you went the completionist route, then you were looking at roughly 25 hours of content.
So, as you can see, it's a pretty decent length for a first-person shooter campaign, which tend to not be very long. One of the best things about 2016's DOOM is that it didn't waste your time with filler content though. Hopefully DOOM Eternal replicates this. Don't get me wrong, I love mowing through demon hordes like it's a casual hobby just as much as anybody, but it can only be so impactful and adrenaline-fueled for so long.
