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.
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.
