Dying Light 2 Confirms 2021 Release Date, Special Edition Details and New Trailer Revealed


Dying Light 2 hasn’t been enjoying the best PR in recent months, suffering multiple delays and insider reports that the game’s development was directionless and a “total mess,” but it seems the team at Techland have been able to pull the game together. While the crucial info leaked early, minutes ago during their “Dying 2 Learn More” livestream, Techland confirmed Dying Light 2: Stay Human (yes, there’s a new subtitle) will be coming our way in December.

They also dropped an impressive new trailer, which includes a fresh look at the game’s world, factions, characters, combat and parkour, and some pretty gruesome mutated zombies. The trailer weighs in at over 7 minutes, so there’s a lot to take in! Check it out for yourself, below.

Dying Light 2 Has Nearly 200 Weapons, Which Will Break on You at the Worst Times

Looking fairly promising! Compared to the demo we saw back in 2019, it does seem like Dying Light 2 has perhaps suffered a bit of a visual downgrade, and we don’t currently have any info about any special features for PC or next-gen consoles. That said, the game still looks complex and fun, so if the focus is on playability instead of visual pizazz, so be it.

Dying Light 2 pre-orders are open now, with Techland offering the usual array of special editions, including a swanky Collector’s bundle. Here’s what to expect from each…
