As scheduled, Techland yesterday publicly unveiled the first gameplay footage of their upcoming sequel to Dying Light in Dying Light 2. In case you missed it, the devs have posted the stream on YouTube, which you can view below.
This is the same footage that was shown behind closed doors at E3 2019 in June, and last week at Gamescom 2019. The video showcases how player’s choices have far-reaching consequences on both the narrative and the world of Dying Light 2.
The story for Dying Light 2 takes place 15 years after the first game. The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world. During the day, bandits, factions, and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps — or someone to take them from. 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.
Dying Light 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in spring 2020, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett releases in the future.
