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 game can be preordered on Amazon 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, but during a recent interview between producer Kornel Jaskula and GamesRadar+, more information came to light.
Dying Light 2 features branching paths, so you'll have to play it a number of times to explore all options. This means that certain areas in the game and story missions will be inaccessible due to specific choices. Jaskula said the following.
It's almost like we are creating several games worth of content right now. We are designing the game with the foundation that some of the players will miss content and we are okay with that. Thanks to the variety of stories, missions, content, and assets, we believe that it will make players want to play the game again and again, or try to play with other players in co-op to see their worlds. That's something that we established as a foundation at the very beginning... it's one of our design goals, and it's something that we still keep in mind.
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's unclear when Dying Light 2 is coming to Xbox One and other platforms, but you can preorder it on Amazon for $60.
