Dying Light 2 is the much anticipated sequel to Dying Light, a game that took the zombie apocalypse genre and turned it on its head. Developed by Techland and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Dying Light 2 is set to release in 2020 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. In Dying Light 2, you play as Aiden Caldwell, an agent of the GRE (Global Relief Effort). Your goal is to help rebuild civilization after the outbreak of a virus that has turned most of humanity into zombies.
The original Dying Light was praised for its innovative gameplay, which combined parkour-style traversal with first-person action and combat. Dying Light also had a unique day/night cycle, in which the zombies were more active and dangerous at night. Dying Light’s success led to the development of a spin-off game, Dying Light: Bad Blood, which is a battle royale-style game set in the Dying Light universe.
Dying Light was one of my favorite games of all time, so I had high hopes for Dying Light II. And I’m happy to say that Dying Light II lives up to the hype. The game is absolutely massive, with a huge open world to explore. The day/night cycle is back, and it’s more important than ever. During the day, you’ll scavenge for supplies and build up your base. At night, the zombies come out in force, and you’ll need to use all your skills to survive.
The combat in Dying Light II is just as good as the first game. You have a variety of weapons at your disposal, from knives and bats to guns and explosives. The game also introduces a new enemy type: the Volatiles. These are zombies that have been infected with the virus for so long that they’ve gone mad. They’re incredibly fast and strong, and they’ll hunt you down until they kill you.
Dying Light II is an absolutely amazing game, and it’s easily one of the best zombie apocalypse games ever made. If you’re a fan of Dying Light or the genre in general, you need to check out Dying Light II when it comes out next year. I can’t wait to play it again.
