Dying Light 2 Stay Human Gains Over 160K Players on Steam Day One

Congrats Techland!

Dying Light 2

A new report reveals recently released zombie apocalypse survival video game Dying Light 2 Stay Human on Steam is off to a great start.

According to Benji Sales on Twitter, as of its posting Dying Light 2 on Steam had a huge launch with 160,202 concurrent players and still rising. What surprises everyone is comparison since Resident Evil Village had a big launch as well, but this new game is 50 percent bigger. It even is 3.5 times the all-time peak of the original Dying Light game. A great achievement for Techland right now.

For the exact numbers, here they are via Benji Sales:

Dying Light 2 – 160,202

Resident Evil Village – 106,631

Dying Light – 45,876

Even though not every critic is singing praises for the game, it seems the gaming community speaks for itself. Everyone must have been looking forward to this game despite its recent issues and bugs, which Techland has promised to fix with further updates.

Some were worried that Dying Light 2 was going to be too long to finish since Techland did say in a report that it would take over 500 hours to complete, which they quickly revised. They clarified it would take 20 hours to finish the game via the main story, but add the sidequests and going through all of The City, it would take 500 hours to do.

Sirus Gaming’s resident reviewer says, “Dying Light 2: Stay Human largely improves upon the original in every way, and it will have you enveloped in the dying light of the City again and again as you glide, climb, and jump from roof to roof in search of the next thing to explore.”

It’s about time you go explore The City today.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
