Doom Eternal Executive Producer Marty Stratton has revealed how long it takes to beat the game's singleplayer campaign. Stratton said it will take players between 18 and 22 hours to finish it, which is longer than the previous Doom.

Doom Eternal release date is just a couple of months away now and Bethesda and id Software have been revealing a ton of gameplay footage and details in the last few months. A couple of days earlier, we got our first look at a brand new demon and earlier this month, a new gameplay video detailed the Battlemode multiplayer .

Today, we have some news about the singleplayer campaign and how long it will take you to beat the story, find all collectables and more. The Executive Produced on Doom Eternal, Marty Stratton, confirmed that Doom Eternal is definitely bigger and longer than 2016's Doom and that between 18 to 22 hours will be enough for a "pretty complete playthrough."

Stratton explained that this includes filling up your Doom Corruption meter, looking for secrets and upgrades and "taking the whole game in" which sounds like a 100 per cent completion to us.

"I was surprised on DOOM 2016 when I saw some of the playthrough ranges. For somebody who was trying to get through it pretty quickly, it was kind of in the 12-to-13-hour range or all the way up to like, you know, people were taking 30, 32, 35 hours on it. It’s a hard thing to gauge," Stratton explained.

When compared to 2016's Doom, it sounds like Eternal will be a bit longer. Doom's main campaign took around 12 hours to complete if you only focused on the main missions. However, just like Stratton pointed out, if you did some extra content on the side it could take around 16 hours, while for the full, 100 per cent completion, you were looking at roughly 25 hours of Doom.
