Tetris Effect: Connected is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and Windows 10 PC. It’s also available through Xbox Game Pass. With so many gamers getting the opportunity to experience the magic that is Tetris Effect: Connected, there are questions in regards to the length of certain aspects of the game. Namely, how long it’ll take to complete the campaign in Tetris Effect: Connected, aka Journey Mode.

How Long To Beat Journey Mode in Tetris Effect: Connected? 

The quick answer to the question of how long it’ll take you to beat Journey Mode in Tetris Effect: Connected is anywhere between 1 and 3 hours. Completion time primarily depends on the difficulty level you’re playing on and how fast you are at clearing lines in Tetris.

In total, there are 27 individual stages to play in Journey Mode with each of these stages being broken off into different sections. For example, the first section features three stages. In each stage, you’re required to clear a set amount of lines in order to advance to the next stage.

As you do this, you’ll earn points which will relate to your final score at the end of the game. Tetris Effect: Connected has leaderboards so if getting a solid spot on a leaderboard is important to you, you’ll want to make sure you’re earning as many points as possible during each stage by doing things like T-Spins, Tetris Line Clears, and utilizing the Zone mechanic.

As noted in our previous guide, the highest number of lines you can clear when Zone is active is 20 for an Ultimatris. Obviously if you’re able to do this, you’ll earn a substantial amount of points. 

Note that the number of lines you’ll need to complete in each stage varies depending on the difficulty level you’ve selected. For example, the number of lines you’ll need to complete on the first stage when playing on Expert is 48. That number is lower when playing on Beginner (30 lines) or Normal (36 lines). 

Difficulty also relates to the speed at which Tetriminos will fall with the speed naturally being the highest when playing on Expert and the lowest when playing on Beginner.

If you’re new to Tetris, it’s recommended that you play on Beginner or Normal first in order to get a feel for how Journey Mode works. You can always go back and replay Journey Mode whenever you feel like it on any difficulty level you like.

Given how short Journey Mode is, we imagine you’ll find it easy to replay the campaign a number of times in order to beat your previous best score and completion time for each difficulty setting.

Again, Journey Mode will take you roughly 1 to 3 hours to complete based on the difficulty you’re playing on (Beginner, Normal, Expert) and how fast you are at clearing lines in Tetris.
