What you need to know

  • Dying Light 2 features a branching narrative.
  • In order to experience it all, you'll have to play it multiple times, making different choices.
  • The new footage focuses on roughly 30 minutes of choices.
  • The game can be preordered on Amazon (opens in new tab) for $60.

Last year, Dying Light 2 was revealed on Microsoft's E3 stage. While the title returns to a decaying city with survivors trying to live after an apocalyptic event, it brings a new emphasis on your choices and their impact on the world. Since the reveal, we haven't heard much about the game. Luckily, Techland just released new footage which gives us roughly 30 minutes of uninterrupted gameplay.

As seen in the video, your actions shape the city. Small decisions have a larger impact on the world. For example, if you play your cards right, the rooftops of dilapidated buildings will be teeming with life. However, if you aren't careful, they maybe a haven for sickness and disease. I would recommend watching the entire clip because not only does it look amazing, but it features some great voice acting.

Hopefully Dying Light 2 will feature a compelling story. The first title excelled when it came to gameplay, but the narrative and voice acting were lacking. It seems like those inadequacies have been addressed this time around. However, this is just a snapshot from the game.

It's unclear when Dying Light 2 is coming to Xbox One and other platforms, but you can preorder it on Amazon for $50. From what we've heard, it features Xbox One X enhancements as well.
