The Evil Within, the survival horror game developed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks, will take you between 15-20 hours to complete depending on what difficulty setting and play style you choose.

The news comes from publisher Bethesda Softworks European PR Manager Alistar Hatch, who shared the estimate on his Twitter account.

Earlier this week Bethesda announced that The Evil Within will also offer a $20 DLC pass. The pass will give players access to three expansion, the first of which lets you play as The Keeper (above), one of the game's enemies, in a series of "sadistic," mission-based maps. The pass will also give players access to a two-part, story-driven expansion starring Juli Kidman, the mysterious partner of main character Sebastian Castellanos. Bethesda didn't say how much the DLC pieces will cost separately, but said that the pass is the best deal.

The Evil Within launches on October 14 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
