Dying Light 2 is without a doubt one of the most anticipated titles this year. Work on the game was very turbulent, there were also scandals, but we are approaching the December release date. So, Team Techland introduced new Dying Light 2 material during Xbox Gamescom’s inaugural nightly live broadcast.
The trailer, which lasts less than three minutes, offers a glimpse into the infected enemies as well as humans in Dying Light 2. According to the developers, this time players will spend more time fighting with humans, since 20 years have passed since the events of the first match. During this time, humanity has grown bolder – but the night is still a domain for monsters – which will have a huge impact on the game’s atmosphere.
The trailer begins with many great panoramic shots and views of Philidor, which show dilapidated buildings, lush greenery, streets littered with rubbish and car wrecks. Later, you can take a look at some of the parkour mechanics approved by Dying Light 2.
Parkour was a distinguishing feature of the first version, which allowed for a breakup from Dead Island, introducing a more vertical gameplay of the game. Parkour will undoubtedly be a very important part of the sequel as well.
The trailer also shows the new characters and factions of Dying Light 2, which were heavily promoted in previous content. According to the developers, the game will focus specifically on player choices, going so far as to block parts of the map depending on our actions. This should increase the restartability of this production and encourage its rebuilding.
Dying Light 2 will be released on December 7, 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
