Techland has just announced that previously unseen gameplay footage of their upcoming first-person zombie game Dying Light 2 will be streamed! Originally the first gameplay footage was only seen privately at E3 this year but will be shown publically at Gamescom and streamed on Techland’s Twitch, Facebook, and Steam pages.
Dying Light 2 takes place 15 years after the events of the first game where the zombie virus went from being an isolated incident to a global pandemic. Players take on the role of an infected survivor named Aiden Caldwell as he must journey through the modern Dark Age world in a city full of death.
Just like the first game, Dying Light 2 is first-person and parkour helps you traverse the unforgiving landscape where surviving humans are either your ally or enemy but in the shadows wait the infected who have evolved to be completely sensitive to UV light and come out at night.
The main mechanic of the game that’s new is the decision making that you will have to make as Aiden. Choices made can affect events in the game may they be big or small; every choice has a consequence and can determine the fate of the city you call home.
The unseen Dying Light 2 gameplay footage will stream August 26th at 11 AM PDT/8 PM CEST
