Dying Light 2 hasn’t enjoyed the best PR in recent months, with multiple delays and insider reports that the game’s development has been directionless and a “total mess”, but it seems Techland’s team has managed to get the game together. While the crucial information leaked early just minutes ago during their “Dying 2 Learn More” livestream, Techland confirmed that Dying Light 2: Stay Human (yes, there’s a new subtitle) is coming our way in December.
They also released an impressive new trailer, featuring a fresh take on the game’s world, factions, characters, combat and parkour, and some pretty gruesome mutated zombies. The trailer weighs over 7 minutes, so there’s a lot to consider! Check it out for yourself below.
Looks quite promising! Compared to the demo we saw in 2019, it looks like Dying Light 2 may have undergone a bit of a visual downgrade, and we don’t currently have any information about special features for PC or next-gen consoles. That said, the game still looks complex and fun, so if the focus is on playability rather than visual spice, so be it.
