The Dying Light 2 release time isn't far off, so I hope you've got your sick days booked. And while you might not be feeling as peaky as the mostly-zombified inhabitants of Villedor when the game launches, you'll still need to book over 20 days off to see and do everything in Dying Light 2 right away. I'm not going to be one of those people, but the colossal double kick Chris shows off in his Dying Light 2: Stay Human review is enough to keep me around for at least 50.

Naturally that's not all you'll be doing in a game of this size—which'll be even bigger as it churns through five years of post-launch updates. You'll be getting dragged into the ongoing conflict between the human Peacekeeper and Survivor factions, honing your parkour skills across the city's skyline, and bashing people with all manner of melee weapons, not just your feet.

Whatever you're most looking forward to doing, I hope you've cleared your schedule: here's the Dying Light 2 unlock time, so you'll know when you can start giving the citizens of Villedor a good kicking.

Despite the much-discussed size of the game, the file size isn't too onerous to beam to your machine. Still, you might as well get the 40GB file on PC pre-loaded—that feature is available now on all platforms. That said, if you've not pre-ordered yet, you should probably check out the Dying Light 2 system requirements, just in case.
