Techland has released a new video for Dying Light 2 It goes beyond why Aiden comes to the city and his motives.
The video also introduces some of the characters you meet and includes some of the story. You can also watch some new gameplay footage.
Dying Light 2 is set 20 years after the first game and will be starring a new protagonist named Aiden. Parkour skills make it easy to climb shelves, slide, and cross walls while navigating the city. With over 3,000 parkour animations, Aiden’s movements should prove interesting and diverse. In addition to parkour, you can use a variety of tools such as grappling hooks and paragliders to help you along the way.
Combat featuring a first-person perspective is mostly based on melee attacks, which degrades the weapon when used. Long-range weapons such as crossbows, shotguns, and spears are also available. Weapons can be upgraded with blueprints and other items that you get when you disassemble other weapons.
The city where everything is done is in Europe, and you are free to explore a map that is four times as large as the original game. There are different factions in the game and you will interact. Your decisions will affect how the world and NPCs perceive you. Some decisions can also open and close the area of the city to you.
In the sequel, new zombies will be added, making it late during the day and more aggressive at night, similar to the first game. At night, zombies hide and come out, giving you the opportunity to explore the hideout.
As with the first game, you can play with others in the co-op play of 2-4 players that was shown in the last Dying 2 Know episode yesterday. In co-op, one player acts as a host and keeps the progress of the game in co-op, while players playing together can keep progress and the items earned. When confronting game choices, all players have a say in how they do things, but in the end, the host enters the choices.
Revealed at E3 2018 during an Xbox press conference for the early 2020 release, Techland announced in January that the game will miss the 2020 window. Last May, the release date for December 7, 2021 was announced. However, the game was later postponed to the official release date of February 4th.
Dying Light 2 will be released for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and Nintendo Switch (cloud version).
