Since it is still in the stars when “Dying Light 2” will finally see the light of day, the developers at Techland keep the players happy with new information.
A few hours ago I mentioned a possible Dying Light 2 subtitle, and now the developers have published the first material, during which the studio representatives will answer questions asked by the community.
This time around, an extensive new video for “Dying Light 2” has been released, answering various questions from players. Among other things, it was about the subject of weapons. As it says here, you shouldn’t expect to come across firearms like pistols or rifles in the world of “Dying Light 2”. Since civilization was destroyed by a world war, there is simply no one left who is able to manufacture professional weapons.
Players can make their own weapons
However, with resources that can be found in the world of “Dying Light 2”, it will be possible to make your own weapons – including shotguns. However, these do not last very long. Another possibility of long-range combat is the use of a bow and arrow. Melee weapons can of course also be made.
Another topic that was discussed in the course of the video is freedom of choice. According to lead game designer Tymon Smektała, the decisions in “Dying Light 2” are made on three different levels. On the one hand, we are dealing with the missions of the main story, in which decisions can affect the further course of the plot. Among other things, this influences which end you see.
Decisions influence the game world
“The second level are decisions that you make within side quests or even main quests, which mostly have consequences within these quests or could influence the world. An example of this is that you can save an opera singer in one of the quests. When you do, she will appear in one of the hubs and start singing. Some people like it, others don’t, ”explained Smektała.
He continues: “The third level is the city alignment system, in which one of the factions takes control of certain areas of the city based on your decisions. When they do that, they install their powers and many different things that belong to this faction. ”
For a good start, Tymon Smektała confirms that Dying Light 2 will be gigantic, because the developers will propose a huge map – the location is almost 7 km2. The developers actually doubled the area with Dying Light, and at the same time expanded it vertically. So we can expect a few high-flying areas with skyscrapers, multi-story buildings, etc.
Then the main production designer mentioned the new infected – Tymon Smektała revealed that it is the players who will cause this beast to appear in the game. It is very possible that it is related to story decisions and the fact that players in Dying Light 2 will be able to influence many elements of the world.
In Dying Light 2 there will also be a clear division into day and night – after dark we will again face powerful creatures. During the day, zombies will hide in buildings, but you can be sure that the appropriate threat will be waiting for us at every step.
Zombies will have their great deal of prominence, but there will be different types and their behavior will also vary depending on the time of day. As expected, the night is young for many of them and you will have to be careful where you go in the wee hours of the morning.
Further details on “Dying Light 2” can be found in the following video.
In the video it is said that they are preparing a great presentation with more information about the game. In case you have missed something of this title, know that Dying Light 2 can be played in full in cooperative mode , it will also have random events and dynamic encounters similar to those of Red Dead Redemption 2 .
