How Long It Takes to Beat Mass Effect 1

Like for almost every other game, the answer to this question depends on your playing style. Some players may just want to run through the main story, while others may want to spend some more time with everything Mass Effect 1 has to offer.

The consensus is that Mass Effect 1 main story takes 17 or 18 hours on average to complete. This may feel short compared to some 25 to 30 hours of the main story that the biggest titles offer nowadays, but remember that Mass Effect 1 hails back from different times.

Still, those who wish to explore every nook and cranny and stay with the game as long as possible can end up with more than 40 hours of playtime.

If the base game is not enough to quench your Mass Effect thirst, you can get two pieces of DLC content—Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station—that take some 2 hours each for 100% completion.

While Bring Down the Sky is included in the Legendary Edition, Pinnacle Station is available to PC and Xbox 360 players only.
