We are at E3! During our appointments we got the chance to be invited by Techland and Square Enix to the E3 Demo presentation of Dying Light 2. This has been one of the best, if not the best presentation we have seen so far. We are still pending one day of E3, and is yet to be seen if any of our last day appointments match or surpass what we saw at the Dying Light 2 presentation. Here are five reasons why you should be excited about Dying Light 2.
A completely different world
The game takes place 15 years after the first Dying Light. After so much time the infected have evolved along with the unforgiving world of the living. The world changes dramatically by a day and night cycle. Bandits are a menace during day and during the night the infected leave their hideouts and roam free. This changing and gruesome world is incredibly detailed and well-crafted. We totally loved every bit of this mad world.
Decisions do matter
The game is full of meaningful decisions. The decisions Aiden, the protagonist of the game, makes does have massive effects in the story. Characters can die and side missions do have serious implications on how the story and characters progress. Developers confirmed several endings, which add a lot of replay value.
Massive, ever-changing world
There are decisions you can make during your gameplay in Dying Light 2 that will change how the world around looks. With these changes, new challenges and enemies come along. The change that we saw during the demo transformed an area that was covered by water into a swampland. This also triggered a new type of infected enemy that was once submerged in the water.
Graphics and Gameplay
The parkour system of the game has never looked so amazing! What Techland demonstrated in their E3 Demo is that they are taking Dying Light 2 to a new graphical level. The fluidity of combat, parkour and level design are breathtaking. At no point the action stops, unless you desire so, but the games allow a continuous flow of zombie slashing action.
This is one of the most attractive parts of the game. The whole campaign is cooperative. You and up to 3 additional friends can explore each other worlds. Each of your worlds should be different based on your decisions, making the experience really varied and entertaining.
Dying Light 2 will launch on 2020. Let us know in the comments below!
