Is Techland either exaggerating with a statement, or thinking that we need to find every possible side mission, resource, item to 100% complete the studio’s next Dying Light 2: Stay Human?
On Twitter, the Polish company wrote that to “max out” Dying Light 2: Stay Human, at least 500 hours of gameplay will be needed. Techland added that this period is almost as long as walking from Warsaw to Madrid. Most gamers who are only after the story and side missions will get to the end of the zombie parkour game faster than that, but it’s still going to be a solid experience for them. That’s perhaps as bold and hair-raising a statement as Peter Molyneux (who himself got in on the NFT craze, as we’ve written about in the past) made about Fable.
We have no idea what Techland meant. Could it be that you have to collect many items to get everything? Or is the studio (which will self-publish the game, by the way!) so insane that we get an achievement or trophy (depending on the platform) for putting in five hundred hours of gameplay into the second part of Dying Light? We don’t even dare to think about what it is possible to spend so much time on a single-player game (well, let’s take Gran Turismo 4 on PlayStation 2: it would take that much time to complete it 100% with all the gold licenses, maybe even more, not to mention the B-Spec mode…).
Whatever happens, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out, as Dying Light 2: Stay Human won’t be delayed once again (and there have been several instances of it, as it was previously scheduled to launch in December 2021…). The game will be released on February 4 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also, from that date, it’ll be on the Nintendo Switch, although it will be a cloud version (so Techland’s product won’t be running directly on the hardware…).
