Those who are looking to purchase Dying Light 2 on February 4, 2022, and beyond will be happy (or terrified) to know that developer Techland has confirmed it will take "at least 500 hours" to fully complete the game.
Techland shared the news on Dying Light's Twitter, saying that the sequel to its 2015 first-person zombie action survival horror game is "almost as long as it would take to walk from Warsaw to Madrid." For those wondering, that walk would take around 534 hours.
This news took the internet by storm and there were those who felt that 500 hours was a bit of a daunting mission to undertake. Techland quickly put those fears to rest by saying that the enormous amount of time to reach 100% was reached by doing literally everything, and most players will be able to finish the main story and side quests in under 100 hours.
"500 hours is related to maxing out the game – finishing all the quests, endings, and exploring every part of the world, but a regular player should finish the story + side quests and do quite a lot of exploring in less than 100 hours, so don't worry," Techland wrote.
In a follow-up tweet, the developer confirmed that, "if you're not in a rush," Dying Light 2's story and side quests should take roughly 70-80 hours to complete.
For comparison, howlongtobeat.com has Dying Light's main story taking 17.5 hours to complete, main story and extras at 35 hours, and a completionist run taking 55 hours. It's clear the developers are holding nothing back for this new entry.
