The Last of Us Part 2 Chapters List: How Long Does it Take to Beat?

The Last of Us Part 2 is significantly longer than its predecessor, given its unique story structure. Here's a full list of the chapters and how long it will take you to beat.

The Last of Us Part 2 will take you to multiple locations across the US, as Ellie embarks on a mission fuelled by revenge and grief. It's a pretty long game, especially when compared to its predecessor, and it's very difficult to know how far along you are while playing.

We'll also share how long it took us to beat The Last of Us Part 2, as well as an average estimate based on which difficulty you're playing on.

How Long is The Last of Us Part 2?

The Last of Us Part 2 takes around 25-30 hours to complete. As with most games there's a suite of difficulty options, and whether or not you're going after safes (full safe locations can be found here) and collectibles will factor into play time as well. For us, it took 30 hours to beat The Last of Us Part 2. We played on Moderate difficulty, but as we were writing guides for it we spent a lot of time exploring everything the world has to offer.
