If you're not playing Dying Light 2 for 500 hours, you will instead be reading 350,000 words and listening to 40,000 lines of dialogue. That's right: Techland has found a few other very big numbers it can boast about on social media, this time relating to the upcoming game's script. For comparison's sake, Skyrim has 60,000 lines of dialogue while Fallout 4 has 111,000.
Techland then compares the Dying Light 2 script to the famous 1878 novel Anna Karenina, which is famed for being one of the greatest pieces of literature of all time. Of course, the studio is only pointing out its game has roughly the same amount of words as the standout novel, but it's quite the comparison to make especially when the story of the original title was so throwaway.
Social media boasting aside, Dying Light 2 is still shaping up very nicely. It releases for PlayStation 5 and PS4 on 4th February 2022. Will you survive the night and digest all 350,000 words of its script? Pack your reading glasses in the comments below.
