Here's How Long Star Wars: Squadrons' Main Campaign Is

Star Wars: Squadrons launches on October 2 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. With the last Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order, taking approximately 17 hours to finish its story, players may be curious about how long it will take to complete Squadrons’ campaign. Luckily, it won’t take that long.

The main campaign in developer Motive Studios’ Star Wars aerial dogfighter is roughly eight hours. There are some variables, such as mission length being dependent upon player skill and completing optional side objectives, but the main storyline in Squadrons should take about eight hours to finish.

This is because the main campaign is relatively linear in structure. There aren’t too many opportunities to explore and, outside main expository cutscenes, Squadrons only contains a few optional conversations between missions that pad out its length and develop its characters.

Squadrons’ story is set after the events of Return of the Jedi. Players take control of the Galatic Empire and the New Republic, switching between both sides to get a full picture of the war in space. In our early review impressions, we said that “the campaign of Star Wars: Squadrons is a solid showcase of setpieces that conveys what’s possible with the game’s engaging flight combat mechanics.”

Star Wars: Squadrons is a budget-priced game, retailing for $40 USD instead of the usual $60 or the newer $70 price tag some next-gen games have seen, like NBA 2K21. Publisher Electronic Arts explained the rationale behind Squadrons’ pricing, saying the retail value matches the game’s scale.
