Dying Light 2: Stay Human takes place 15 years after the zombie outbreak in the crumbling city known only as the City. The natural world has begun encroaching on the ruins, and the City is strangely beautiful.
This time around, players will take on the role of Aiden Caldwell, a member of a group called the Nightrunners. The day/night cycle and parkour movement systems return from the first game, along with a new narrative structure that emphasizes player choice and how that choice impacts the story and the City itself.
Dying Light was one of the better first-person zombie games I’ve played in recent years, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the sequel—or any news of the sequel even—for a long time now. The game has been in development for some time, but Techland has remained pretty much entirely silent for the past year.
Dying Light 2 was originally scheduled for a 2020 release but COVID-19 and other issues led to its indefinite delay. Now it will release on all platforms—PS4/PS5, Xbox One, XSX and PC—on December 7th.
All told, yet another exciting game coming out later in 2021. Today we also got our frist real glimpse at Far Cry 6. You can watch two new trailer for that game and find out more about its characters, release date and more right here.
