‘Dying Light 2: Stay Human’: Release date, pre-order deals and how to save £5
Dying Light 2: Stay Human is the follow-up to Techland’s 2015 release of the same name, and from what we’ve seen from trailers and gameplay, it seems to be following in the footsteps of its predecessor and expanding its world.
While the first game was set in the fictional Middle Eastern city of Harran, Dying Light 2 will take place inside the walls of Villedor, a central European settlement, 15 years after a viral outbreak that has turned the world’s population into zombies .
We’ve had our fill of zombie-related games sure, but what sets Dying Light 2 apart is its parkour-like traversal system. In a focus on fight-or-flight, moving through the destroyed city of Villedor with wall runs, paragliding and rail vaults is just as valuable as standing your ground to fight off the infected.
In a recent tweet , the official social media account for Dying Light 2 claimed that to complete the game 100 per cent, it would require 500 hours of gameplay, so expect plenty of content.
