On 4 February 2022, gamers will finally be able to jump into the highly-anticipated Dying Light 2. It has been a long time coming. The game, which was originally announced way back in 2018, is releasing for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. If you’re looking for a long game to sink your teeth, Dying Light 2 might be it. According to Techland, the game offers hundreds of hours of entertainment. So much so that if you’re a completionist, you can expect to spend at least 500 hours exploring the map.
While Techland isn’t exactly clear on how these 500 hours will be spent, the developer did follow up on its original statement saying that the game’s story and side quests will over around 100 hours of game time. So if you’re just interested in the game’s story and doing a few missions here and there, then you can expect to get around 100 hours out of the game.

It seems that the 500-hour mark covers the game world, collectables and seeing everything on offer. Along with doing the side quests and main mission, of course. Techland hasn’t stated yet how big Dying Light 2 is in terms of the map. However, 500 hours is a lot of time needed to explore a game. Some of the biggest games around, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, only eat away around 200 hours of game time to complete every corner. So this is a lot.
500 hours is related to maxing out the game – finishing all the quests, endings, and exploring every part of the world, but a regular player should finish the story + side quests and do quite a lot of exploring in less than 100 hours, so don’t worry! 🥰 https://t.co/4R641zkLpg

Techland also says that it will take players 534 hours to walk from Warsaw to Madrid. Again, we don’t know how this will work. “Walking” could mean literally lilting your controller stick slightly to take a leisurely stroll through the game world.
We will have to wait and see how all these numbers work out in the game. Dying Light releases on 4 February 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
