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

Last week Dying Light 2 was in the news for another tweet from the developers saying the game has 500 hours of content. That number was later clarified, with Techland saying it takes 500 hours to complete absolutely everything the game has to offer, including different story paths, endings, and more.
Players who just want to complete the main story and side quests can expect around 70 to 80 hours, while players who follow the main story should only need around 20 hours.

After several delays, Dying Light 2 is set to come out next month, on February 4th. We had to pick up 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.” Check out the Dying Light 2 official gameplay trailer for more details.
