Techland has promised five years of post-launch support for upcoming open world zombie game Dying Light 2: Stay Human.

The developer made the claim on the game’s official Twitter account over the weekend. It said “We guarantee to expand the world of Dying Light 2: Stay Human for at least 5 years post launch with new stories, locations, in-game events and all the fun stuff you love.”

From the sounds of it then, there’ll be even more than the boasted 500 hours of content the studio previously claimed the game will have. It would clarify this claim just a day later, to say this figure included side missions, collectibles and seeing all of the game’s potential decisions and endings. The main story itself should “only” take around 20 hours.

And to its credit, it’s a claim with merit. Previous entry Dying Light launched in 2015, and was still getting updates as recently as last year. This has included expansions such as Hellraid, based on a previously-cancelled Techland game in 2020. There’s also been seasonally-themed mini events such as the one this past holiday season.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human arrives on February 4. That’s on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC and, via the Cloud, Nintendo Switch.
