According to developer Techland, its upcoming Dying Light sequel, Dying Light 2, requires “at least” 500 hours to max out.

Some days ago, the official Dying Light Twitter account tweeted that players will need 500 hours to “fully complete” the game, which is almost as long as it would take to walk from Warsaw to Madrid in real life.

“It's about 100% completion rate, most of the players who are in for story and side quests will be able to complete the game quicker, it will still be a solid experience though”, Techland later clarified.

Following this tweet, numerous fans started asking questions about the sequel’s length as this is considerably longer than the time it took to beat the original Dying Light.

In a new tweet, Techland has now further explained its initial tweet, stating that the 500 hours mark refers to fully maxing out the game - finishing all of the game’s quests, endings, and exploring every part of the world.

In addition, the developer clarified that “regular players” can actually complete the sequel’s main story and side quests in less than 100 hours.

Quite the difference for sure. We can’t wait to get our hands on this long-overdue sequel to 2015’s Dying Light.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human launches globally for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5 next month on February 4.

Over twenty years ago in Harran, we fought the virus—and lost. Now, we’re losing again. The City, one of the last large human settlements, is torn by conflict. Civilization has fallen back into the Dark Ages. And yet, we still have hope.

You are a wanderer with the power to change the fate of The City. But your exceptional abilities come at a price.
