'Dying Light 2 Stay Human' Will Be Showing Off 15 Min. Of Gameplay Next Week - Trailer

Dying Light 2 is a novel vision of the post-apocalyptic experience will bring everything players would expect from a new, radically improved installment in the series.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human brings to life a unique post-apocalyptic vision of  Modern Dark Ages - a brutal, bleak, and unforgiving reality where you are as likely to perish at the hand of a human as you are by the Infected.

In Dying Light 2 Stay Human players are visiting the City—mankind's last stronghold in the fight against the virus.

Developed parkour mechanics enable players to explore the vast open world and use tactical combat. The lost civilization and setting of the modern dark ages requires creative approaches to finding items and crafting gear. Gameplay shifts during a day and night cycle, so players can dare to plunder abandoned lairs of infected at night and discover the dark secrets of those in power by day. Players must choose which side they want to take and write their own story.

Make ambiguous decisions and witness how they impact the world on multiple levels, transform the shape of The City, and ultimately decide its fate.

Techland invites you to watch the 5th episode of Dying 2 Know (D2K), an original web series that delves into the world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human.

BAFTA-nominated French composer Olivier Derivière (A Plague Tale: Innocence, Streets of Rage 4, Remember Me) scores his most ambitious soundtrack yet in Dying Light 2 Stay Human. Renowned for his distinctive and dynamic soundtracks recognized by Billboard, Classic FM, MTV and The New York Times, Derivière commissioned A-list avant-garde musicians and custom-built instrumentation to bring a unique, emotional soundscape to the game’s deep story and visceral world infected by a viral outbreak.

As composer and music designer for Dying Light 2, Derivière sought to portray the game’s realistic themes of devastation, loss and isolation from a viral outbreak, human civilization’s fight for survival, and hope through unity, by way of a dual textured compositional approach. In his pursuit of unorthodox sounds, Derivière commissioned the London Contemporary Orchestra, one of the world’s leading innovative and respected avant-garde music ensembles, and recorded at Abbey Road Studios with three-time GRAMMY® award-winning score engineer John Kurlander. During their collaborative process, Derivière captured the experimental articulations of the orchestra to enhance the emotional narrative, while his rhythmic electronic synth soundtrack is steered by the strings of a bespoke electric psaltery instrument blended into the score and manipulated to evoke the gritty, lonely landscape and cold, corrupted state of the world’s seemingly hopeless future.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is coming to Nintendo Switch (Cloud), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC on February 4, 2022.
