“Dying Light 2” Will Take Only 500 Hours to Complete, So Don’t Worry
Dying Light 2 will not take you hundreds or hundreds of hours. Techland, the developer, has confirmed that the core story takes the same amount of time as God Of War, Mass Effect, and The Surge.
You might be tempted to believe that we all at GAMINGbible are playing games all day. Surprisingly, this is not the case. We all enjoy a little shut-eye or some sustenance or touch of grass from time to time. The news that Dying light 2 would contain 500 hours of gameplay was not met with enthusiasm by guides writers and reviewers. This is equivalent to playing the game three times a week. We’re not sure Techland has done enough to make Dying Light 2 a worthy successor to its acclaimed predecessor, but that doesn’t appeal personally to me.
stated that 500 hours refers to maxing the game, which means completing all quests and endings and exploring every corner of the globe. This was in response to the discordant reaction to the announcement. But a regular player should complete the story and sidequests and do quite a bit of exploring in under 100 hours. So don’t worry! Although “less than 100 hours,” is a long time to spend on a game, it’s still a lot. And, although I won’t name names, many of us are still working away on our Steam backlogs.
Techland has now stated that the story will only last 20 hours because the game was “designed for players who have different gameplay styles and preferences.” It will take you 80 hours to complete the main story as well as all side quests. Final note: Those who are “dedicated” as defined by the dictionary will spend 500 hours on the sequel to the story. This is to see all the side quests and the consequences, complete all the side stories, collect every collectable, listen to all the dialogue, and visit all locations on the map.
