Dying Light 2 will get at least five years of post-launch content

Just a week after Dying Light 2 developer Techland said the game would take “at least 500 hours” to fully complete, we now learn that the game will receive 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 years to come. We don’t know what proportion of the upgrade plans will be free content, or how much free downloadable content will be.

However, Techland also supported the original Dying Light with lots of free content and several 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 had 500 hours of content. This number was later clarified, with Techland claiming 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 around 70-80 hours, while players in the main story should only need around 20 hours.

Dying Light 2: first hands-on preview screenshots

After multiple delays, Dying Light 2 is set to release next month on February 4. We were able to get our hands dirty with 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.
