Techland announced the sequel to their best-selling open-world zombie game live on-stage at the Xbox E3 2018 briefing.
Dying Light 2 features new gameplay where player decisions have a lasting impact on the world around them.
Acclaimed game writer Chris Avellone who is the narrative designer for the game and the co-author of its unique setting revealed the game on-stage accompanied by the announcement trailer and a gameplay trailer.
“We are very close to our community, and we’ve clearly heard their requests for the new game. I know we kept them waiting, so I’m more than excited to finally announce: Dying Light 2 is coming” — said Pawel Marchewka, Techland CEO. “Dying Light 2 will be a truly bold sequel, combining the much loved Dying Light DNA with completely new ways to play. For the first time in the franchise, players will have the power to decide the fate of a decaying metropolis with their own choices and actions. Across the story, the melee combat, the parkour movement, and other aspects of the game, we’re giving players a completely new level of freedom.”
Dying Light 2 is set to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
