Techland has released the 26-minute gameplay video of Dyling Light 2 shown behind closed doors at E3 2019 in June and Gamescom 2019 last week.
The video showcases how player’s choices have far-reaching consequences on both the narrative and the world of Dying Light 2. In Dying Light 2, the open world is four times larger than the original Dying Light.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
The fate of The City is in your hands.
It’s been 15 years since humanity lost to the virus.
The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world, plunged into a modern dark age. During the day, bandits, factions, and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps—or someone to take them from, by violence if necessary. At night the infected roam free, evacuating their dark hideouts to prey on the living.
You are Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor. Your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.
- Your Choices, Your World – You must make tough decisions and hard sacrifices as you decide the fate of a society on the brink of collapse. The effect of the choices you make will have a huge impact on entire regions of the city, uncovering new land masses and areas to explore. Play the entire campaign in up to four-player co-op. Host your own games or join other players’ and see how their choices have played out differently to your own.
- Exceptional Agility and Brutal Combat – On your journey from humble beginnings to a person of great power, you have unprecedented freedom of movement across the city, seamlessly integrated with brutal first person combat.
- A Modern Dark Age – In a desperate city, where resources and power are scarce, unstable, and trust in ruling bodies is all but eroded; humankind has reverted to a dark age. Civilization is gone but the relics are still there. This is a violent, primal, and unforgiving world—and so are its inhabitants.
- The Infection Has Evolved – The infection has evolved and become more sensitive to UV light. Society exists in the relative safety of sunlight, while the infected hide in the shadows of buildings. At night the infected roam the streets freely searching for prey, presenting opportunities for you to explore areas of the city inaccessible by day.
Dying Light 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in spring 2020.
