We’ve been waiting a long time for the sequel to 2015’s zombie parkour title, Dying Light, but it sounds like it’s all going to have been worth it.
Dying Light 2, which is due to release next year, is promising to be bigger, better and a helluva lot scarier, and it’s emerged that the game is actually going to be perfect for all different types of players.
Developer Techland has stated [via PCGamesN] that it’s planned for the game to be “four times bigger” than Dying Light, and it’ll grow even bigger thanks to its planned DLC.
In an interview with Dying Light 2’s Lead game designer, Tymon Smektala, Prankster 101 asked how long the game would take to complete, with Smektala responding “15 to 20 hours.”
Smektala then elaborated, adding: “It’s very hard to measure in an open-world game…
“Things just happen as you play the game and you have to react to them. But it is 15 to 20 hours for the main story, because the whole content, I would say, is more than 100 hours.”
It might be time to book another week off work…
Dying Light 2 will place some focus on a water crisis following the zombie outbreak, adding a new (and realistic) concern to the much-loved genre.
Of the game, Techland writes: “Follow an entire in-game mission and find out how your tough choices shape the narrative and The City itself.
“It’s been 15 years since humanity lost to the virus. Plunged into Modern Dark Ages, the last human settlement fights for survival in a primal, unforgiving world where you need to fear both the infected and the living. Your remarkable agility, mastery in combat, and quick wits give you the power to bring The City back from the brink of extinction.
“The fate of humanity’s last refuge is in your hands.”
