How Long Does It Take to Beat & Complete Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise?

The investigative adventure of Francis “York” Morgan in Deadly Premonition 2 is now available on PC. Here’s how long it takes to see it through.

When Hidetaka Suehiro, also known as Swery, started working on Deadly Premonition fourteen years ago, little did he know that his masterpiece would set a Guinness World Record for the most critically polarizing survival horror title. The community welcomed a second installment a decade later, though Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise was a Nintendo Switch exclusive at first. Almost two years after its initial release, the game was officially ported to Windows, leaving many PC gamers wondering how long it takes to beat and complete Francis York Morgan’s trip down memory lane.

Serving both as a prequel and a sequel, Deadly Premonition 2 takes players to the fictional town of Le Carré, resting on Louisiana’s banks of the Mississippi River. As FBI Special Agent Morgan regales two younger colleagues with a tale of a gruesome homicide that turned his vacation into a full-blown investigation, fans get to relive his deep south adventure one episode at a time. Armed to the teeth with movie references, otherworldly wits and Zach’s silent support, York’s unusual story lets gamers in on the sinister origins of a deadly drug that ran rampant in 2005.

Deadly Premonition 2 comprises four episodes. Segments that take place in the past allow players to freely roam and explore the streets of Le Carré, though some missions and events take place at certain in-game times. Fortunately, fast-forwarding the clock is as easy as smoking a cigarette or sleeping the hours away at the hotel. Those who find York’s sheltered lifestyle unbecoming can also have him camp out in the open with the help of a sleeping bag.

Since the passage of time does not usually get in the way of beating the main campaign, players can complete York’s self-appointed investigation in some odd 20 hours. Utilizing fast travel and skipping dialogue sequences and cutscenes will have the credits roll in approximately 16 hours, whereas a leisurely approach should take no longer than 23 hours and 6 minutes.

Because the town of Le Carré has little to offer in terms of entertainment, players will find it hard not to check in with the supporting cast when they randomly cross paths with them, often leading to unlocking side activities. While partially tending to extras ought to conclude the main story in 30 hours or more, an evenly-paced playthrough should not go past the 30-hour mark. On the other hand, opting to breeze through side activities will lower the overall playtime to 22 hours and 8 minutes.

Deadly Premonition 2 features seeming open-world vastness, and nerve-racking missions will put completionists’ patience to the test during the first playthrough. As several quests can only be completed at a specific time or before reaching a certain point in York’s story, revisits to particular chapters might be necessary. Thanks to the wonky controls and in-game physics, fans eager to complete the game will find that claiming all rewards from the minigames, discovering 100 Fleur de Lis and pursuing 400 Stamps is surprisingly cumbersome and time-consuming.

While some speedy and experienced completionists can see the whole story through in as little as 29 hours, most will likely take at least 33 hours on average to reach the 100% threshold. On the other hand, a leisurely game completion will require players to invest upwards of 40 hours to see the end credits after exploring every nook and cranny in Le Carré. Regardless of the preferred playstyle, fans should embrace the idea of going off the beaten path if they wish to wholly enjoy the unique narrative and gameplay aspects of Deadly Premonition 2.

Constantine Morgus is a Game and Narrative Designer by trade. He has also worked as a Content Writer and Ghostwriter in the past. Since Constantine is multilingual, he spouts (lyrical) nonsense more often than he would like to admit. Strangely enough, none of it is reflected in his Games Features… or so he would like to believe!
