In your opinion, how long is too long for a game? Whether it’s simply ending the main story or getting that elusive Platinum trophy, how long are you willing to stay in a game to see a 100% completion percentage? Is 500 hours too long? According to the bulk of the Internet, yes. That is.
This conversation is happening on everyone’s lips thanks to a erroneous tweet from developer Techland the other day. It explains that Dying Light 2 will take ‘at least 500 hours to complete’ if you want to see everything the title has to offer (including different dialogue trees, different endings, all collections, etc).
In response to the backlash caused by this seemingly innocuous tweet, Techland has come up with another explanation. This time, the developer noted that “Dying Light 2: Stay Human is designed for players with different play styles and preferences to explore the world however they see fit” and has reduced the completion time down further. This is how it looks now:
- 20 hours: Time required to complete the main story
- 80 hours: Time required to complete the main story and all side quests
- 500 hours: Time required to maximize the game with all the side quests, endings, choices, checking everything on the map, finding every collectible, experiencing every dialogue option.
These numbers are revised from an earlier tweet by the company that was noted “a casual player should finish the story and side quests and pretty much explore everything in less than 100 hours, so don’t worry!”
