So far, Techland’s unveiling of their highly anticipated sequel to Dying Light has revealed a more RPG and sandbox approach to their open-world survival adventure. Fans of the original will be pleased to know they’ll be playing in an equally bleak and decaying metropolis infested with zombies, but this time it’ll be four times the size. Fast-paced parkour and up-close melee combat will be featured just as heavily as in the original, and with a few new surprises for co-op players. Best of all, the developers have listened to their fans and this time around are offering players more freedom in their fight to survive the zombie hordes. Dying Light 2’s apocalyptic world will offer more choice-based mechanics to deliver a unique gaming experience for every player. Keep an eye out for an official release date because Dying Light 2 definitely looks to be a game worth counting down to.
