Dying Light 2 will have over five years of post-launch support

Techland /

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is just days away. The highly anticipated sequel to Techland’s post-apocalyptic, parkour-infused survival action RPG is set to release on February 4, 2022 and deliver hundreds of hours worth of gameplay.

Literally, hundreds of hours. It was confirmed by Techland that it will take at least 500 hours to max out the game and complete all of its main and side quests, experience the different choices and endings, explore every corner of the map and find every collectible. To put that into perspective, that’s almost 21 days worth of content.

For those who aren’t completionists, the main story takes about 20 hours while the addition of completing the side quests will bump it up to about 80 hours. Suffice to say, there’s going to be plenty for you to do in the game at launch.

What’s more, Techland intends to support Dying Light 2 well after launch. The studio shared its post-launch roadmap for the game, revealing plans for five-plus years of support.

Following the game’s launch, Techland will release factions-inspired free DLC. In March, we can look forward to our first set of challenges, followed by a series of events featuring mutated infected in April and a second set of challenges in May.

In June, we’ll get our first story DLC. As a reminder, Story DLC 1 is included in the Deluxe and Collector’s/Ultimate Editions of the game.

In the months and years to follow, Dying Light 2 will receive its second story DLC (included with the Collector’s/Ultimate Editions), new weapons, enemies, stories events and more. There are even plans for additional free and paid DLCs.

It’s certainly an ambitious roadmap but Techland already proved capable in providing lengthy post-launch support. 2015’s Dying Light saw multiple expansions and DLC released throughout its lifecycle. This included the Cuisine & Cargo, The Bozak Horde and The Following expansions. Cuisine & Cargo introduced new quarantine zones, while The Bozak Horde added a challenge map. 2016’s Dying Light: The Following was a full-fledged expansion that included a new map with new story, modifiable vehicles, new weapons and more. Hellraid, a repurposed canceled game from Techland, was released in 2020 and took place in an arcade machine where players would fight off hordes of medieval enemies.

We don’t have specifics as to what Dying Light 2’s future DLC will entail, but you can bet it will be robust. Dying Light 2 Stay Human is set to release on February 4, 2022.
