Dying Light 2 announced at Microsoft's E3 2018 event

Dying Light 2, the sequel to the original 2015 open-world survival horror title, made its debut today at Microsoft's E3 2018 presentation. And while the game makes a return to a decaying city with survivors trying to life work after an apocalyptic event, it brings a new emphasis on your choices and their impact on the world.

"It's been 15 years since the fall. The city is a corpse, and we are the worms; we burrow in it," the announcement trailer starts. Players will be fighting in the streets against not only each other but the undead as well. In terms of choices, players can decide on whether to team up with survivors in a bid for control of resources or make enemies as they progress.

But be careful, because each choice will have a palpable impact on how your story progresses.

Alongside the announcement trailer, Microsoft showed off a look at the gameplay, and how even access to water will be used for or against you.

Dying Light 2 doesn't currently have a release date, but it's up for preorder now for $59.99.

  • Stoked for this, but I'm a little disappointed to see it's a skip ahead 15 years. There's a lot of stuff to answer between DL and DL2 then. What happened with the cure and the outside world? Seems like something they're going to disappointingly blanket over to move on, but I'd totally buy some story DLC to see what happens.
