Were you thrilled by the ‘white-walkers’ in Game of Thrones or fascinated by the ‘undead walkers’ in The Walking dead and have you heard about Dying Light 2? Or maybe you often wonder what you will do in a zombie apocalyptic situation? If these questions caught your attention then you are at the right place. We are going to talk about all the things you should know or want to know about this survival horror game, Dying Light 2.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human is an upcoming thrilling video game which is developed and published by Techland. It is the sequel version of the game Dying Light which came out in 2015. The long wait is believed to be worth it because the sequel version will jump back into the market with much more breathtaking and goosebumping qualities for the experience for the players.
Things You Need to Know About The Game
As the name and Dying Light 2 trailer suggests, the game is about Staying Human. Unraveling the experience of a zombie apocalyptic world. The main protagonist is Aiden Caldwell, a newly developed character, who has been loaded with amazing parkour skills. Unlike the protagonist of the first game, Crane, Aiden is more energetic, fast and dexterous.
It is known from various sources that around 3000 parkour animations are there in the game to give the player a smooth experience such as wall-running, mid-air dashes, using rails, zip-lines etc.The gamers have the liberty to explore the City the game is set in. A four times larger map will be provided to the players. The new version has to offer better gadgets and technologies for the players’s aid. New and interesting features also include the paragliders and grappling hooks.
The paragliders will make reaching from one roof to another more handy, since the entire civilization has taken to the rooftops because of the zombie apocalypse. While the grappling hooks have been upgraded to a more physics-based functionality. New Zombies have also been introduced who, unlike the previous version, become more antagonistic and horrifying at night. Although, the feature of the first game where the zombies are slow under the sun is kept the same.
Dying Light 2, like the predecessor, is a four- player game, you can either host your own game or join others. The players can join any of the three factions offered by the game. It offers more decision making on the part of players. Although the players must keep in mind that their actions and decisions will have far-reaching consequences which can either make or break a situation i.e., your actions can either bring peace or even destruction. Their action can let them explore new openings or can seal them off completely.
Techland confirmed that it takes almost 500 hours for the game to complete. However, they also added later and I quote “ a regular player should finish the story and side quests and do quite a lot of exploring in less than 100 hours, so don’t worry”.
Dying Light 2’s release date has been decided on 4th of February 2022. Which gives you enough time to sit back and prepare yourself for this grand gaming experience.
Dying Light 2 Trailer
Did you watch the trailers of this much anticipated game yet? The whopping number of views on the trailers says all about the eagerness and enthusiasm among the players. Techland released 2 different trailers 3 days ago, namely, Dying Light 2 Stay Human- The Reason, Dying Light 2 Stay Human- Dying 2 Know Episode 6. They have previously released a Cinematic trailer and two different gameplay trailers.
The Dying Light 2 trailer gives you a vivid feel of the graphic experience of the game. It builds up another level of excitement for the gamers. It shows a glimpse of the new features and add ons in the game such as the parkour skills of the protagonist Aiden, the use of paragliders, grappling hooks etc.
We also see the various new types of Zombies that have been added into the game. The trailer very well shows that the sunlight keeps the infected at bay but their hunt begins at night. The trailer mostly focuses on the background story of the game. The story revolves around some haunting memories of the protagonist for which he seeks answers, answers that are hard to get.
The politics between the factions in the game is also obvious in the trailer which further builds up the gamers’ interest. “Sometimes you have to become a monster to stay human”, this line from the trailer sets a savage level of the game.
