Playing and completing the astral chain video game can either be done in as little as just 15 hours or can take you as long as 25 or maybe even 30 to 35 hours. Although the average time to complete the astral chain video game takes about 20 to 25 hours, the time duration to complete the game can depend on many factors.

The factors could be how the person is playing the astral chain, how experienced the player is at playing video games, and on what gaming device the person is playing the game. All the factors can determine the time to complete the astral chain video game.

Moreover, the time of completing the astral chain game also depends on the experience and the level of playing video games for the player. It is quite obvious that any person who is experienced at playing video games would finish the astral chain game in less time as compared to someone who is playing that video game for the first time.

On average, an experienced video game player, or what we call a veteran player, is likely to finish the game in 10 to 15 hours if they play the astral chain video game without completing extras in the game. However, if the player fully plays the astral chain game, then another 4 to 5 hours can be added to the count.

If an intermediate experienced player is playing the astral chain then the time can range from a minimum of 15 hours to a maximum of 20 hours to finish the game without working on extras.

Lastly, if the person playing the astral chain video game is a beginner, or what is commonly said, a rookie, then it can take anywhere from 20 to 30 hours to finish the game.

Why Is The Astral Chain That Long?

The reason why it takes the shortest duration of time for a veteran player to finish the astral chain video game is that a veteran player is used to playing video games more efficiently. Whereas, a player who is not used to playing and is a rookie to playing video games, is less likely to finish the astral chain in a short span of time. 

Moreover, a person who is a beginner at playing games would take the longest time. The reason behind that is that a beginner has no experience of playing video games, no knowledge of controls or how one should play a video game, and no habit of playing games for a longer duration as well. These are some of the factors which increase the time duration of completing the astral chain.

If the person playing the astral chain follows the storyline of the video game bluntly and just focuses on finishing the game, then it would take around 10 to 15 hours only to get done with this game.


The astral chain video game is much more than just following the storyline and finishing it. The players are supposed to collect all side rewards by completing the assigned tasks, completing side quests, trophies to earn, achievements to unlock, and much more.

Moreover, there are multiple weapons, costumes, and other such materials which the players can buy after redeeming points collected while playing the astral chain. If any player wishes to play the astral chain fully and complete all the side quests, then one can add another 7 to 10 hours to the time it would take to finish the astral chain.
