E3 2019–Crush some skulls and do some sick parkour in Dying Light 2

57 second read

Announced last year, Microsoft have unveiled a brand new gameplay trailer for the open-world zombie-killing fun show.


The trailer, while also showing off some of the games gloriously gory violence, seems to also be placing a much greater emphasis on the story in Dying Light 2, focusing on Aiden as he waxes philosophical about what it means to be alive when death is knocking on your door. Honestly, as tired and overplayed as zombies are, Dying Light 2 looks like a fantastically fun little title.

With a large open world that seems to change based on the actions you take and the factions you side with, Dying Light 2 looks to be taking some of the best bits from the original game, namely the wonderfully chunky combat system and the fluid parkour movements, and cranking everything up a notch. As long as the writing sees a drastic improvement over the first game, the sequel seems to be shaping up really well.

    I enjoyed the original title, but they seem to be looking at releasing it so close to Cyberpunk, it might not get the same coverage as it deserves.

      I dunno, I liked what that Take 2 or whatever guy said about fortnite not affecting the market, just because people like fortnite, doesnt mean that they wont still buy other games.

      Cyberpunk may win on initial sales and stuff, but Dying light could still make its targets in the long run, if its any good, if they bring in new content at key times and if they can make the world feel alive through updates.

      This “I am infected” thing might put that world on a time limit though, dunno.

      Unless they launch the game with Epic, in which case, dead on arrival.

        Never forget Titanfall 2. A masterpiece overshadowed by hype for two other big hitters.

          Really had fun with the single player, like really really, but the MP fell short for me, killed its sustainability.

          Other games filled the same gap, but did it better and linked the single and multiplayer experiences.

            I guess a lot of players felt that way. I still play the mp on occasion.

    First one was really good.

    Will definitely give this one a go as well.
