'Dying Light' will be lasting around 30-40 hours for one playthrough

Just about any open-world game tends to provide players with tens of hours of entertainment and it's now been confirmed that Dying Light will not be any exception to that whatsoever.

Recently, Dying Light producer Tymon Smektala discussed the length involved with the open-world title as well as the size relative to previous projects Techland has completed.

"It’s so big that it easily supports 30-40 hours of gameplay, it is the biggest and most ambitious game world we’ve ever created. To put that in perspective – it’s at least 3 times as big as our previous open world project, and it’s way more dense because in Dying Light you can go nearly anywhere – with the Natural Movement system there aren’t many obstacles that you can’t overcome.

"We do hope that players will be exploring that world not only because they follow the main storyline, but also because of the curiosity and just plain fun of playing the game. There will be lots of side missions, randomly generated dynamic events, challenges, and meaningful collectables.

"And because our game is build for emergent gameplay, it’s just good to boot it up and have a blast playing it for a couple of hours with friends – exploring the game world will just happen by the way," Smektala said.

The time that it looks like players will take to complete this game is about par for the course for an open-world title, not taking away anything from Dying Light. The dynamic events will be an interesting feature to keep on eye our for while playing.

Dynamic events, weather and other instances seem to be a trend that is surfacing for a lot of next-generation games. The Division will be implement a dynamic weather system for players to get through.

We know Dying Light will be launching this coming year, but we do not have a time frame set out yet. For all of our latest exclusives, previews, reviews and features, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. Game On.
