The Xbox App HowLongToBeat update is headed to PC, and with this new application, players will be able to see exactly how much of a time commitment each game may take. More so, there are different separations such as the main story, completionist time frames, as well as side missions.

Xbox has allowed users to take to Reddit, their own Feedback Hub, and even Twitter to give them feedback on what players themselves would like to see added and implemented into their PC application. The latest addition to the app is the HowLongToBeat app, which takes a deep dive into how long it will take you to fully complete a game from start to finish. This update will go live today and will be available to look at within the Game Details page. While it isn't going to be available for all games on Game Pass as of yet, Xbox does state that it will be available for most games as of today.

HowLongToBeat is completely driven and created by the gaming community, and these community members specialize in determining how long each game takes to beat, as well as how long the main storyline may be, or the main storyline with extras such as side missions, secrets, etc. This service makes choosing a game much easier, as you know what you are getting into before even downloading the game and taking up precious disk space. Whether you are looking for a game that has more content than one could handle in a month, or you are looking for a side game to just jump head first into and complete in a day, the HowLongToBeat app gives you all the info you need. There are four categories to choose from when you are looking for your new game; Main Story (Required), Main Story and Additional Quests/Medals/Unlockables, Completionist (100%), and Combined.

The application also allows you to enter in your own times if you'd like by using the "View Details" page, where you can also manage any of the games you have in your library. There is also a neat little forum you can check out that shows exactly what route people took, how they play their games, and what made them get from A to B quicker than others. To read the entire update coming to the Xbox PC app in September, you can head to the Xbox News official site.
