Dying Light 2 Stay Human represents the latest in Techland's open-world zombie series, featuring a large open world built for combat and fluid parkour. With a zombie outbreak pushing humanity to extinction, players find themselves stuck in a conflict between factions and an ongoing fight for survival.

"Dying Light 2 truly shines with its high-stakes nighttime gameplay, which turns the modern and tired open-world formula on its head," stated our senior editor, Jez Corden, in our Dying Light 2 review. "While some of the writing isn't the best and next-gen console performance is a bit disappointing, Dying Light 2 offers a tight experience that builds on the original."
