Dying Light 2 will take you a lot of time

Waiting to discover the old gen versions (i.e. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), new information arrives on Dying Light 2: Stay Human. The new Techland game has already shown itself in reality enough throughout 2021, with the show Dying 2 Know, which has revealed a lot of information on the gameplay and on the creation of the game itself. Today, however, Techland has revealed to the world the longevity of its new title, which promises to be decidedly interesting, at least for all those who like to call themselves true completists.

As announced by the development team, in fact, Dying Light 2: Stay Human will take you a long time. Techland has revealed how many hours it will take to get 100%. The result? Definitely extraordinary. In fact, to complete the title 100% it will take many hours, more or less than walking from Warsaw to Madrid, at least according to the calculations made by Techland to contrast the incredible duration of the title.

Yes, because for being able to get to 100% (i.e. get all the collectibles and complete each mission) will take about 500 hours. “This number of hours refers to the total completion of the game. Most of the players interested only in the main story and side quests will take less time but it will still be a very solid game experience ", reads Techland's second twitter, which specified the duration of the game in the best possible way. How much, exactly? From 70 to 80 hours of gameplay. A figure definitely within everyone's reach, at least as far as most players are concerned.

Dying Light 2's 500 Hour Completion Time Sparks Debate

Dying Light 2


Yesterday, Dying Light 2, out February 4, sent out a tweet saying that it would take 500 hours to fully complete the game. This launched a whole lot of takes on whether that was great news or too overwhelming to consider taking on, causing the game to clarify how exactly they came up with that number.

In follow-up tweets, Dying Light clarified that 500 hours was “100%-ing” the game, finishing all quests, endings, exploring every part of the world. Meanwhile a “regular” player should be able to do the story and side quests and explore a bit in around 100 hours instead.

Then, they said story + side quests should take you around 70-80 hours if you’re “not in a rush.” This is a bit different from what developer Techland said in April:

“If you rush it, you should be able to finish the story in roughly 20 hours,' lead game designer Tymon Smektała said. 'But to see it all, you’d have to spend 2-3 times more time than that. Our opening area alone can last for over 7-8 hours if you want to explore every nook and cranny, so there’s absolutely a lot to play here.”

So, somehow we’ve gone from 20 hours, to 40-60 hours to “see it all,” to actually 70-80 hours for not rushing. Then to 100 hours for most players. And then to 500 hours for maxing out the game at 100%. What a ride!

I commented on the original 500 hour proclamation saying “No thank u,” which got me accused of hypocrisy, given my well-documented thousands of hours of playtime in Destiny 2. Whether the 500 hours sounds appealing or not probably depends on how much you’re looking forward to Dying Light 2 in general. I wasn’t a big fan of the first game, so these sky-high hour totals are kind of a turnoff. As in, I might be more prone to watching a show I’d heard mixed things about if it was eight, thirty minute episodes, rather than ten seasons of hour long episodes to get the full experience. Meanwhile, my favorite show, I’d be comfortable watching essentially…forever.

Destiny 2


I also think there’s some sort of difference between 1) a live service game, 2) a competitive multiplayer game and 3) a single player RPG. The first two, playing for 500 hours does not seem that hard if it’s something you enjoy, while a single player RPG had better be really fascinating and expansive to justify that time investment. I’m thinking of a game like Skyrim has one of the only RPGs I’d spend that much time in, but hey, maybe that’s Dying Light for some people.

I don’t know, the older I get, the more I appreciate smaller packages of content. Those eight episodes, thirty minute seasons of shows. 90 minute movies. 10 hour games. And yes, even my thousands of hours of Destiny can be broken down into very small pieces of playtime. So if I do play Dying Light 2, I would probably hew closer to that original 20 hour estimate of story completion, rather than the pumped up numbers they’re talking about now.

I won’t fault any game for its length, long or short, because I think it’s dependent on how it’s presented. A game can be too short or too long, while another game may make perfect use of 5 hours or 500 hours. Though the longer you go, the harder I think that is, especially in this genre. We’ll see what Dying Light 2 does with its sprawling world to explore.
