They will be needed near 500 hours to complete Dying Light 2, the new survival game from Techland.
The developer itself declared in a tweet the unexpected amount of time that will have to be invested in its next title.
Techland clarified that most players will be able to complete the game in story mode and side missions much faster, ensuring a completion rate of approximately 100%.
“To complete Dying Light 2 Stay Human, you will need at least 500 hours, almost as long as it would take you to walk from Warsaw to Madrid!”, explained the study in a tweet.
Didn’t like that Dying Light 2 lasts 500 hours
However, the tweet may not have had the response the company hoped for. After racking up thousands of responses and quoted tweets, many said that the time to finish the game was unpleasant, with one stating:
“I’m 100% canceling my pre-order. 500 hours of complete nonsense is guaranteed. You can’t make such a long game without a ridiculous amount of garbage filler.”
Techland clarified that those 500 hours simply apply to the finalists. Another follow-up tweet said that “regular players” should be able to clear story and side missions in “less than 100 hours.”
“500 hours is related to maximizing the game: finishing all missions, endings and exploring all parts of the world, but a normal player should finish the story and side missions and explore quite a bit in less than 100 hours. So no! you worry! “
Dying Light 2 release date
Dying Light 2 will be released on February 4, 2022. It will be available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S and PS5.
The sequel was announced during the Microsoft E3 conference in 2019 and was given the spring 2020 release date. However, in January of that year the game was indefinitely delayed.
In May 2020, reports surfaced suggesting that Dying Light 2 was in a sorry state, although Techland rejected the claims. Another blow came in February, when a report shed more light on the troubled project.
