Developer Techland announced on January 9 that the open-world action RPG “Dying Light 2 Stay Human“It will take at least 500 hours to complete.” On the other hand, various reactions were received from the fans.
“Dying Light 2 Stay Human” is a sequel to “Dying Light” released in 2015. The stage is the world after the collapse of civilization, 15 years after the virus spread. The player becomes Aiden Caldwell, a survivor who has been infected with the virus but remains sane, and fights for his survival in a town called City.
This artwork is an open world action game that uses a first person perspective. Parkour and weapon crafting, which are also hallmarks of the series, are more powerful than the previous job, and each skill tree is prepared for the elements of parkour and combat. There are several factions in the city and there are zombies lurking as well. Player judgment is said to be required in various situations, and story development will change accordingly. In addition, this job also supports cooperative play with up to 4 players.
The developer commented that it would take at least 500 hours to fully compose this job. It takes about the same time to walk from Warsaw, Poland, to Madrid, Spain. By the way, according to user-submitted Clear Weather Accumulation site How Long To Beat, it took 55 hours to complete the full composition of the previous work and 17.5 hours to clear the main story. This is an average value based on posts of around 1,000 players.
It has been revealed that the map of this job is four times the size of the previous job, and it can be seen that the volume is only significantly increased at this point, but 500 hours is an impacting number. This is a level that is rarely seen, even in the How Long To Beat mentioned above. Some fans have expressed their expectations for this number, but many said it was too long.
Since it’s time to finish completely, it’s predicted that it won’t take 500 hours if you’re just living the main story. That said, there are countless “no fun” side quests, as well as ones that make harsh comments, “Do you think this will sell the game? “Due to the amount of time presented. Some people have doubts about the quality of the game itself, for example thinking that it is.
In response to those fans, Techland explained that 500 hours is the volume needed to complete all quests, see all endings, and explore anywhere on the map. It wouldn’t take 100 hours for a play to erase a story and side quest while still enjoying some decent exploration. He also said that even such “cleaning for a short time” would be a complete experience, and he is confident in the quality.
The volume clearing time is one of the indicators when considering and evaluating the purchase of a game. Although it depends on personal likes and dislikes and the environment, in general, people who have a large volume will tend to prefer it. So Techland maybe donated 500 hours to please the fans. However, the numbers were so big that I received an unexpected backlash.
Additionally, in February, when this work is released, there are many notable works such as “Elden Ring” and “Horizon Forbidden West”, and in March, “Gran Turismo 7” and “Triangle Strategy”. Gamers have limited time to devote to the game, and this schedule may not have accommodated too much volume. As a result, this job seems to be satisfactory for many players with less than 100 hours of play.
“Dying Light 2 Stay Human” to be released on February 4, 2022 for PC / PS5 / PS4 / Xbox Series X | S / Xbox One / Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch version will be offered in cloud streaming.
