Techland has released a trailer for Dying Light 2 Stay Human, and the game will be released on December 7 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S.
[Mis à jour le 28 mai 2021 à 17h23] Open world, zombie, parkour, these three words resonate in a special way in the ears of the 17 million players of the Dying Light franchise. With the second creation briefly seen in 2018, planned for 2020 and disappeared from all radars since then, there was reason to question the development of Dying Light 2. Techland recently published first gameplay images of its future. It refreshes the memory of many veterans of the franchise and sparks the curiosity of many beginners.
So what should we take away from this gameplay demo?
In Dying Light 2 Stay Human, the player fell 15 years after the apocalypse due to a virus that has turned most humans into zombies. We’ll play Ethan Caldwell, an alien searching for his past who finds himself wandering the streets full of the living dead in the city, one of the last inhabited cities on the planet. There he will meet the Nightrunners, a group of veteran survivors with whom he will have to collaborate in order to survive, but not only. Three factions are competing for control of the city, the Survivors, the Peacekeepers, and Forsaken, and the player will have to choose one of the sides in order to advance in the adventure.
Which brings us to a central element in the game: the dynamics of the environment. Player choices can influence the story, but also the world itself. Different factions, zombies and thieves interact differently depending on the day or night, allowing for extremely varied gameplay and intense immersion. As for parkour, a key component of the success of the first Dying Light, it is a comeback, making it possible to fully explore the verticals of the open world and escape hordes of enemies of great diversity. In terms of combat, Techland says Dying Light 2 will offer many possibilities, whether one is a fan of speed, brute force, or ingenuity.
Original concept and innovative features, Dying Light 2 Stay Human appears to be well on its way to its predecessor. It is true that Techland has already demonstrated its capabilities for us on numerous occasions, particularly in the realm of survival and horror games (we’ll think of Dead Island here). So there are good reasons to look forward to Dying Light 2. The game will be released December 7 on PC PS4And PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, allowing fans to immerse themselves in them from the Christmas holidays, alone or with others. It is already available for pre-order.
