'Dying Light 2' Story DLC Delayed Until September

by Rainier on May 12, 2022 @ 9:40 a.m. PDT

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.

In the interest of polish and making sure the Dying Light community receives the finest experiences, Techland will delay the release of Dying Light 2 Stay Human's first major story DLC. The DLC, once planned for release in early summer, now targets September.

Dear Pilgrims,

Your feedback has always been our top priority. That’s why, at Techland, we strive to be as open and as honest with you as possible.

Over the last few months, we have focused on adding some of your most requested features, such as New Game + mode, FOV slider for consoles, and many co-op improvements. On top of that, in June, we will introduce the first game Chapter entitled “In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner,” filled with content and events, as well as the highly anticipated photo mode.

That being said, we need a bit more time to develop the first story DLC, which is now planned to be released in September.

We apologize for the delay, but we firmly believe that our community, fans, and gamers deserve to receive some truly unforgettable experiences.

We want the first major story DLC to meet your expectations by giving it the absolute highest level of polish.

Thank you for your trust and support,

#PeopleOfTechland

Stay Human,

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.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC, followed by Nintendo Switch (Cloud) later in 2022.
