Just a week after Dying Light 2 developer Techland said the game will take “at least 500 hours” to fully complete, we now know the game will have at least five years of post-launch content with new stories, areas, in-game events, and more.
Techland announced its post-launch plans on Twitter, guaranteeing support for the coming years. We don’t know how much of the update plans will be free content, or how much will come in the form of free DLC.
However, Techland also supported the original Dying Light with a lot of free content and multiple major paid expansions, so we can probably expect to see the same kind of support with the sequel.

Last week, Dying Light 2 made headlines for another tweet from the developers, where they said the game has 500 hours of content. That number was later clarified, with Techland saying that it takes 500 hours to complete absolutely everything the game has to offer, including different story paths, endings, and more.
Players just looking to complete the main story and side quests can expect to spend 70-80 hours, while players following the main story should only need around 20 hours.

After several delays, Dying Light 2 is due out next month on February 4. We got a taste of Dying Light 2 late last year, where we said the game “simultaneously feels like the natural next step for the franchise, while also feeling like something that establishes its own unique identity.” For more information, check out the official gameplay trailer for Dying Light 2.
