Fifteen years after the events of the original game, Dying Light 2 remains human and takes place in an open-world urban environment. The long screening, which was shown behind closed doors at E3 2019, was an impressive showcase for the ambitious and expanded games parkour system, battle, and election-driven history. Nevertheless, the motivating promise of discovering the secrets of your past and finding those you have lost in the history of this game sounds fascinating.
Dying Light 2 E3 2019 trailer showed some gameplay and gave an insight into the history of the game. The latest trailer for Dying Light 2 which was shown at E3 2021, detailed the story after the events of the first game Dying Light in detail. Otherwise, the game’s first trailer was a gameplay demo that gave us a proper look at gameplay and a taste of how our choices affect the decaying metropolis.
Similar to its predecessor, Dying Light 2 focuses on parkour traversal, where players can sprint, jump and climb through the city. Like its predecessor, it seems parkour-heavy, with new protagonist Aiden traversing the world in this style. The highlights are the chains of parkour moves and melee, not to mention the sheer number of uninfected people that populate this city.
During your exploration of the city that is four times larger than the original game world, you can take on side missions, explore abandoned buildings and make fundamental decisions that affect the flow of your story. Their decisions in the city will have an impact on the state of the city. The sequel is set twenty years later, where the modern world is a thing of the past. Depending on which faction controls a district of the city, you will see a change in the environment that reflects their ideology. It seems that even small decisions can change the shattered world around you.
On the way, you will meet a group of survival veterans, the so-called Night Runners, who are used to helping people from different factions. With the news of an official release date, Techland has unveiled a new title for the upcoming survival horror. The studio has revealed a fresh look at the gameplay in the latest trailer titled Dying Light 2: Stay Human as well as details of the action we can expect in a recent PlayStation Blog post.
