“Fallout 4” is a post-apocalyptic video game that is the fourth installment in The Fallout Series.

 With a total of 83 trophies, one can expect Fallout 4 to take around 25 to 30 hours to complete all major missions on a normal difficulty level. However, this means there are other routes – such as going back and finishing quests or toughing it out on higher difficulty levels – for players who want more of the game.

The main story of Fallout 4 includes 144 quests, primary quests and many objectives, which translates to a length of about 25 hours. Plus, the ruins make great adventuring locations, especially for players looking for a challenge.

In addition, experts recommend more needed matches per hour to survive in the post-apocalyptic wasteland setting without dying too often. Finally, if that wasn’t enough death-defying excitement, they recommend 50 more matches per hour for even greater risk/reward scenarios.

On October 23, 2077, the main narrative begins inside the Sole Survivor’s pre-War house in Sanctuary Hills, just minutes before the worldwide thermonuclear conflict.

Fallout 4 is largely about gathering resources and exterminating foes, although it’s also about accumulating items. From a defeated raider’s wardrobe to an abandoned supermarket manager’s office, there are plenty of goods for the taking.

One notable feature of the upcoming title is its emphasis on player choice. Unlike other games in the series, players will be able to make decisions that impact their own story and how regions develop over time.

Why Would Fallout 4 Be So Long?

Fallout 4 is so long because the game would have to account for too many variables otherwise, including factors like several potential companions, the variety of postures for humans, how much blood appears on enemies, any terrain or height impacts on bullet trajectories or anything else.

Developers want to make sure that players can find what they’re looking for without feeling frustrated if they don’t happen across it right away. 

Given all this variance in possibility with Fallout 4’s numerous mechanics and details, each time one plays through a quest line or explores different areas, it should feel different enough to not get boring. Admittedly that may be an issue when there are too few open spaces to roam freely.

The game is modeled after the long-running RPG series, with the decisions one makes changing how the game proceeds and different enemies knowing one’s location in advance.

It implements permanent death where companions who die can never be used or seen again. This means that one must strategically choose when to use them to not get killed needlessly.

Quests are not single battles but dynamic events requiring good reflexes and good preparation before combat. It has a lot of little things that add up, which just results in more game play time than most modern games, which boil down to an uninteresting linear shooter experience followed by predictable boss battles at the end of each level without any sense of accomplishment due to instant saves.


Fallout 4 is a post-apocalyptic open-world RPG video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios, set in Boston. The long campaign is one of the reasons why people love playing these games over and over again so much. 

They do offer an emotional attachment that other video games don’t. Completing Fallout 4 at 100% may range from 140-160 hours for seasoned players who want to do all missions and earn all trophies. This is a tough and time-consuming job, but allot some spare time if one wants to obtain a platinum award for completing everything.
