How long does it take to beat the Guardians of the Galaxy game? The new Marvel title from Square Enix launches today, so you'll need to know how many hours to put aside for it.
Unlike the Marvel's Avengers game that Square Enix worked on previously, there's no online mode for the Guardians of the Galaxy game. It's one big story campaign, so it's a lot easier to predict how long you'll spend with it.

So if you want to know how long it'll take to beat the Guardians of the Galaxy game, we've got the game length details below!
How many chapters are in the Guardians of the Galaxy game?
The Guardians of the Galaxy game is divided into 16 chapters. Each of these chapters represents a significant chunk of the story, but it's interesting to note that some chapters are longer than others - some of them task you with exploring a whole new world, while other chapters might just be one big boss battle.
After you've finished a chapter, you will be able to replay it from the main menu by using the Chapter Select option. This will allow you to pop back in later and pick up any collectables that you missed and have another crack at any bits you want to take another stab at.

How long to beat the Guardians of the Galaxy game?
We would estimate that the Guardians of the Galaxy game will take most players around 16 hours to beat. Some of the chapters are a little longer than an hour, while some of the others are a bit shorter, so 16 hours seems like a reasonable average.
Of course, if you play on the higher difficulty settings or retain a fervent commitment to picking up every single collectable on each planet, you could add an extra couple of hours to that total.
The aggregator website How Long To Beat states that the main story is roughly 12 hours long, while a 'main + extras' approach will take you 18 hours. So our estimate wasn't far off!
What happens after the credits in the Guardians of the Galaxy game?
Does the Guardians of the Galaxy game have a post-credits scene? Yes, it does! We won't spoil it here, but please don't turn off your console or computer as soon as you see the credits starting to roll - there are still a few things that the game will ask you to do, so just be patient and wait to see what's in store.
When you've finally finished everything that's lurking in the credits, you'll see an option on the screen to fast-forward or skip the rest of the credits. But do take a moment to appreciate the hard work of all those developers!
Does the Guardians of the Galaxy game have New Game Plus?
Yes, the Guardians of the Galaxy Game does have a New Game Plus mode. Once you've completed your first run-through of the game, you'll see New Game Plus available as an option on the main menu. Select this option and you'll restart the game, retaining all of the swag from your first run - all your outfits, upgrades and skills will still be usable, so you should have a lot of extra fun on that second play-through!
