Dying Light 2 is an ambitious game, aiming to include far more gameplay systems in a denser world than the first title. This time around, the player's choices affect the city and its inhabitants, while the infection appears to have evolved in mysterious ways, as you can see in the 30 minute gameplay demo Techland released last year.
The first Dying Light has sold well over 13 million copies, so it's understandable why Techland wants to take as long as is needed for the sequel. For more information on Dying Light 2, you can check out this E3 2018 preview from our Senior Xbox Editor Jez Corden. We'll be sure to share more when we learn the new release window for the game.
Good night. Good luck.
Dying Light 2 takes the parkour zombie fighting system of the first game and expands it to a new city that evolves based on your choices throughout the game.
