With the announcement of a playing time of around 500 hours, developer Techland caused euphoria and sheer horror at the same time. How the scope of Dying Light 2 is composed and how long you can count on it, you can find out here.
Estimated playing time of Dying Light 2
After many of you expressed concerns about the incredible playing time of 500 hours, the developers at Techland backtracked in a later announcement: You can only count on a scope of 500 hours if you unlock all endings in addition to all main and side quests, Explore every inch of the map and find all the collectibles. If you are only looking for fun in between, you can count on this playing time:
- Complete all main quests and end story: about 20 hours
- Complete all main and side quests: about 80 hours
- Complete all main and side quests, made all decisions and seen every ending, fully explored the map, and found all 250 collectibles: approx. 500 hours
In general, the playing time seems to be well balanced. If you just want to experience the story, you’ll get plenty of content with around 20 hours. If the game captivates you, you can easily spend another 500 hours in the world and discover everything.
Update plan through 2027 for even more scope
As Techland officially announced, Dying Light 2 will be provided with content and updates five more years after the release in 2022. That should increase the estimated playing time of 500 hours and keep you tied to the controller or mouse and keyboard for a long time. And anyone who played the predecessor despite being indexed knows that this too has been fed with new content for years.
