Like many survival-action games, The Last of Us Part 2 is broken down into multiple chapters. In total, it will probably take most players around 25-30 hours to complete the campaign for the first time. This, of course, can increase or decrease based on how much time you spend exploring the various environments and areas that you come across during the main story.

The Last of Us Part 2 is absolutely teeming with collectible items and notes and all kinds of little touches that will help add more lore to the world as you explore it. Altogether, those looking to 100% the game will probably want to set aside around 30-40 hours to track down all the hidden items.
