Just a week after Dying Light 2 developer Techland said the game will take “at least 500 hours” to fully complete, we’re now learning that the game will get 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 how much of the update plans will be free content, or how much will come in the way 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 likely expect to see the same type of support with the sequel.

Last week, Dying Light 2 was in the news for another tweet from the developers, where they said 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 just looking to complete the main story and side quests can expect to spend about 70-80 hours, while players beelining the main story should only need about 20 hours.
After multiple delays, Dying Light 2 is set to come out next month, on February 4. We got to go hands-on 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.” For more, check out Dying Light 2’s official gameplay trailer.
