While I would normally speculate and give you my best-educated guess, I have something better this time. Thanks to a copy provided by Sony and Shift Up Studios, I recently completed my first playthrough of the game. As such, I have a good idea about how long it will take to complete the game. Furthermore, the game’s director has also shared his thoughts about the playtime of Stellar Blade. According to Kim Hyung-Tae:

“Play time is expected to be about 25 hours for the main story and 30 to 50 hours if you include all the collectibles completion.”

He was right on that. After spending north of 20 hours, I was able to beat Stellar Blade’s main story and a few side missions. After checking my total playthrough and calculating a bit, I realized it would take around 20–25 hours to complete Stellar Blade’s main story.

However, if you want to do side missions, it would take around 30–40 hours to beat the game entirely. Finally, for players looking forward to hunting the platinum trophy for Stellar Blade, a completionist run would take around 30–50 hours. Check out all the times taken to beat Stellar Blade below:
