'Dying Light 2 Stay Human' Reveals Partial Post-Launch Roadmap, First Story DLC This Summer - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 26, 2022 @ 9:58 a.m. PST

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 presented the Dying Light 2 Stay Human post-launch support roadmap for the next few months.

The first story DLC is planned for this summer, and many updates are planned for at least five years beyond launch, including stories, events, challenges, cosmetics, weapons, and much more.

Today, a new Dying 2 Know More episode was released full of artistic inspiration and details about Techland’s artists' daily work.

Tomorrow, Techland will release a time zone map for the launch, showing fans when they'll be able to start playing by region.

More information will be revealed throughout this week such as details about a new in-game event, Spike, for Dying Light, more character introductions and much more.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is powered by the C-Engine, a new generation of Techland’s in-house technology dedicated to open-world action-adventure and action-RPG games.

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.

The Techland Merch Store is available in US, UK, and EU regions. And if anything catches your eye over the next couple days, you can nab yourself the perfect Nightrunner outfit with a -20% discount (sales will last until January 21, 2022).
