Allegedly, the apocalyptic parkour title will take players 500 hours to complete in full, which is coincidentally a similar amount of time it would take you to walk from Warsaw to Madrid. Impressive, no?
Taking to Twitter yesterday, the game’s official account relayed the intel, which you can see for yourself below.
It’s worth noting that this figure is for players who want to “fully complete” the game. Presumably, this would entail achieving a 100% completion of everything Dying Light 2 has to offer, from side content to the main campaign to maybe even some multiplayer co-op quests.
For those who want to simply complete Dying Light 2’s main campaign, Techland has confirmed (a little further on in the Twitter thread above) that the title will take a lot less time. Phew!
From a personal perspective, while this all sounds great on paper, I’d find that kind of time investment pretty intimidating. It can also be tricky getting the balance and the pacing right for an experience that long.
Still, I’m looking forward to finding out for myself when Dying Light 2 launches on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC on Feb. 4, 2022.
For more information about Dying Light 2 Become Human, here’s a general overview courtesy of Techland’s official Steam page:
