Techland has opened up about Dying Light 2 to try and keep the hype going. Morale faltered after Microsoft announced a delay during E3 2019 and the developers are trying to ensure they do not lose steam. There are a lot of eyes watching this upcoming open-world-RPG which is now reporting to have over 100 hours of content.

The main story can be completed in 15-20 hours, but if you dedicate yourself to completing every aspect of this game, it will take much longer. An interview done by Prankster 101 asked the lead designer Tymon Smektala how long it would take to beat the game. These numbers come from that interview and only drove to entice the players more with a long term commitment inside the game.

In the interview, they did discuss that it is hard to measure the duration of an open-world game because of the encounters that happen during the quests. Combat, choices, and side quests can all cause a tangent that drives up the amount of time you spend in the world. When asked for clarification, Smektala confirmed that the whole game “is more than 100 hours [long].”

It was revealed earlier this month by Tehcnland’s chief technology officer Pawel Rohleder that the setting is four times bigger than in the previous game. This estimate does include all the DLC that was built for the core game, giving us a good guess at how massive this world really is.

The original pitch during E3 2018 claimed that this game would be a “narrative sandbox.” The world around you will be shaped by your actions and decisions, crafting a unique experience for every player. Many fans were able to try the game for the first time during this year’s E3, and many are saying it is a massive upgrade from the original product.

If you are not familiar with the Dying Light setting, it is a zombie apocalypse world built around battling factions and the never-ending horde of undead. It ran on a day/night system where the difficulty and strategy of the game dramatically changed depending on the time. During the night, more powerful undead was present along with beasts that hunt you down based on noise.

The game remained a unique view on a zombie-infested world and gave players a chance at fast-paced combat. The main selling point of the original game was the parkour option as you jumped from rooftop to rooftop, avoiding the zombie-infested streets.

Dying Light 2 is planned to be launched in the Spring of 2020 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can pre-order the game right now at multiple retailers, but no pre-order bonuses have been announced as of yet.
