Dying Light 2 will take approximately 80 hours to finish and a whopping 500+ hours to 100% complete, developer Techland has recently revealed.
Techland caused some jaws to drop recently when it posted that players would “need at least 500 hours — almost as long as it would take to walk from Warsaw to Madrid” to “fully complete” its upcoming title.
A second tweet later confirmed that “story + side quests, if you’re not in a rush, should take you around 70-80hrs” to complete.
Both tweets seem to have players worried.
“Not even the best games ever made can for a single playthrough, this is worrying as f*ck guys,” wrote one player, who summarised the situation with a simple statement: “Quality > Quantity.”
Another compared the claim to two popular titles that had drastically different strategies when it came to content.
“God of War: 100% in roughly 50 hours with a 20 hour story: Masterpiece,” wrote Theftmas. “AC Valhalla: 100% in 135 hours with a 58 hour main story: A mediocre game at best. Proof of quality over quantity.”
What do you make of Dying Light 2‘s boast?
Update: Techland has reached out to Stevivor, further clarifying that “a focused playthrough of Dying Light 2’s main story can be completed in about 20 hours; more for some, less for others.”
Dying Light 2 Stay Human is expected on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5 from 4 February 2022.
