Soulslikes are known for being fairly long games, and the Lies of P length seems to follow that pattern. For those who like to 100% and fully complete games before moving on to the next, you’ll have plenty to do when exploring Krat. That’s because completing side content and finding all of the collectibles could even double the runtime of the game.
Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a game that can keep you busy, Lies of P is. Like Elden Ring, which can be found on our lists of the best PS5 games and best Xbox Series games, you’ll be expected to endure the horrors of Lies of P for quite some time. It may be worth preparing yourself for the journey ahead.
Lies of P length
Lies of P’s length is around 25-35 hours for an average playthrough, based on our time with the game for our Lies of P review. Depending on how long it takes you to overcome the various enemies and complete side quests you will spend longer in the game, up to 40 hours total.
This takes the game up to the length director Choi Ji-Won said in an interview with ‘Prankster101’. Choi Ji-Won based this on the average player, so those with experience in the Soulslike genre may finish Lies of P quicker as we mentioned. However, if you want to see all three Lies of P endings that the game has to offer. In that case, you’re looking at roughly 60 hours or more, depending upon how long it takes you to find all of the collectibles, such as the records, Trinity Key doors, outfits, and see those individual endings.
Fortunately, if you’re cautious about trying the new game, you may be happy to find that you’ll be able to experience Lies of P on Game Pass arrives. That means you can experience the full game so long as you have an active Game Pass subscription.
How long is Lies of P compared to other Soulslikes?
In comparison to the likes of Elden Ring, Lies of P is considerably shorter to complete, whether or not you’re a perfectionist. However, if we take a look at the first Dark Souls, Lies of P is roughly three times as long in a single playthrough, given there’s more to see and do.
Lies of P falls somewhere in the middle when it comes to the lengths of Soulslikes in recent years, as it’s not one that’s likely to near the 80-hour plus mark unless you aim to do everything in each playthrough for each ending, yet it offers more in the way of side quests, secret routes, and NPC quests than earlier Soulslikes do from the previous decade and console generation.
