How many chapters are in Bravely Default 2

There are a total of seven different chapters in Bravely Default 2. These chapters will bring you across the land looking for the elemental crystals that this series is so fond of. Generally speaking, this should give you round 60 hours of playtime, or perhaps a little bit more if you want to farm levels and Booster Buns to maximize your party’s power level.

The first five chapters are fairly straightforward, in terms of Bravely Default 2 story lines. After defeating the final encounter of Chapter 5, make sure you leave the area rather than approach the boss again. You’re not going to want to stay in that loop unless you’re looking for something in particular. After scooching by, there are two more chapters; Chapters 6 and 7 are noticeably shorter than the other five chapters.

Bravely Default 2 also seems noticeably shorter than it’s predecessor, Bravely Default. This is not by a significant margin; the game is just a few hours shorter than the original game, with slightly less to do after you’re done with the story. Bravely Default 2 lacks a lot of post-story power, but there’s still probably more than 20-40 hours after you’re done with the main story. Especially if you want to farm the really good endgame weapons!
