Fans have been waiting for Dying light 2 ever since Techland announced that the game would be released in 2020. But we all know that the game is far from being released. Last month, the company had announced that will postpone the target release date. This has only agitated the fans more. But there’s still good news: a gameplay has been revealed!
Dying Light 2 was expected to be a sequel. But, that’s not exactly the case this time. It’s more like something in-between. It is a survival story but also has a horror angle to it. But that’s not all, since there’s is the mystery aspect, too, with respect to the lead character. Let us not waste any more time and check out why Dying Light 2 is still one of the most intriguing games of the year.

This may be one of the most beautiful things that have happened to the game’s development. Chris Avellone has been a veteran writer in the video game industry, even when he was in his teenage years. He has also authored multiple comic books. So, who better than him to come up with the story for Dying Light 2. Avellone has himself went on to say that the game strictly follows the action-reaction theme. Meaning there is no preset simulation that takes you regardless of what you do. Your choice determines where you are going to land. This makes the game very special as there are plenty of other simulations that you may have entered if not for the right set of decisions that you are supposed to make. We all know how the Witcher 3 turned out in which Chris was the lead writer and story architect.
The “Dark Ages” appears a lot in the gaming world. It is also synonymous with inferno or apocalypse. But the Dark ages in this game is quite different. The themes include infidelity, betrayal, etc. Also, the Zombies are one of the main presets of the game. Part one also included zombies. But the makers have made sure to reduce the dependence. The zombies are just a minor part of the narrative. They just are present through scenarios. But they are the real deal. Zombies only help with the progression of the narrative. The team has also taken several pages from the “Walking Dead” and “Game of Thrones” to design a setting that makes the human characters intimidating as the other horror characters.
Aiden Caldwell is the protagonist of the game. The open-world game has a storyline that is environment-themed. Aiden is in search of the truth related to his past. That is why he comes to the city. The city might be the last foothold of human beings. Rest all being succumbed to the apocalypse. To help the character, there are night runners. They are those people who will help when you are about to encounter an innumerable number of zombies whom you won’t be able to take them out on your own. As before, the game is set in 2030 under the assumption that the world fell 15 years ago. There’s a need for a new civilization. Resources are limited, and people will have to fight to gain peace.
The obstacles are plenty. A player character must find ways of making his city a better place to live. To get the civilization going. There are a lot of bad people around—Renegades and ex-prisoners who want to control the city. You are under the threat of these people who are ready to take any chance that comes their way. The player-character must ensure that the city should not fall under the clutches of the ex-convicts. Also, the factions are not that entirely bad. You can find characters that may be good and can help you. So, be clever to choose the right fight.
The Night In Dying Light 2
The night will test your courage when playing the game. Everyone, including the central character, sidekicks, and the renegades, are afraid of the dark.

The roofs and verticality of the city will give you an edge. But do not just cringe away from the night. The night also has a lot of things to offer.
The makers of this game have finally come up with a date. Yes, it was announced two days ago that the game would be released on December 15, 2021. That’s good news, right? Another thing that you must pay more attention to is the name. Even though people have gone about calling it DL 2, or the sequel, it is more important to understand the non-humanistic aspect.
