It was part of Microsoft’s awesome E3 show, but it was so good that we just had to show you it all over again – yep, Dying Light 2 is a thing and it looks stunning.
The long awaited sequel to Techland’s Dying Light – Dying Light 2 – was shown off to the world via the Microsoft E3 show, and the bold idea found within most definitely requires another look. With a superb post apocalyptic experience promised, fans of the original Dying Light will be more than happy with the improvements and groundbreaking innovations included in Dying Light 2.
“We are very close to our community, and we’ve clearly heard their requests for the new game. I know we kept them waiting, so I’m more than excited to finally announce: Dying Light 2 is coming” — said Pawel Marchewka, Techland CEO. “Dying Light 2 will be a truly bold sequel, combining the much loved Dying Light DNA with completely new ways to play. For the first time in the franchise, players will have the power to decide the fate of a decaying metropolis with their own choices and actions. Across the story, the melee combat, the parkour movement, and other aspects of the game, we’re giving players a completely new level of freedom. ”
Dying Light 2 was announced on-stage by Chris Avellone, who is a narrative designer for the game and co-author of its unique setting of the Modern Dark Ages. The reveal was accompanied by the Announcement Trailer, and you can see both below.
The bold sequel to the open-world phenomenon, Dying Light 2 brings to life a unique post-apocalyptic vision of the Modern Dark Ages – a brutal, bleak and unforgiving reality where you are as likely to perish at the hand of a human as you are by the infected. In this exhausted world, your quick thinking, exceptional parkour abilities and brutal combat skills are the only things that let you dive into darkness and emerge alive. Make morally grey decisions and witness how they impact the world at multiple levels, shape the transformation of the City, and ultimately decide its fate.
Dying Light 2 will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with the power behind it being provided by Techland’s new in-house technology dedicated to open world and action-RPG titles – the C-Engine.
