The size of the world, three categories of solutions and a homemade shotgun: the developers of Dying Light 2 answered fan questions
As promised, Dying Light 2 from the Polish studio Techland has begun answering fan questions about the ambitious zombie action game. The lead game designer of the game Tymon Smektala reported to the audience.
Smetana recalled that the world of Dying Light 2 is twice the area of all maps of the original Dying Light combined – almost 7 square kilometers. However, this indicator does not reflect all the density and verticality of the sequel’s locations.
According to the developer, the city is divided into two main regions (the old city and the center with skyscrapers). They, in turn, have seven districts, which, at the suggestion of the user, can go to one or another faction.
Helping factions in Dying Light 2 is the first (lowest) decision level in the game. The second is quest dilemmas that affect the outcome of a quest or anything in the open world. Third, the choice in this category determines the course of the plot and the ending.
In addition, the player will be able to influence the appearance of the infected with appendages on the back shown in the March teaser: “If he really scares you, try to make the right decisions. “
There are no traditional firearms in the world of Dying Light 2. Still, users will be allowed to craft a one-handed homemade shotgun – mighty but fragile due to its amateur nature.
The cat hook has undergone noticeable changes in comparison with the first part. The tool will work more realistically and will make you feel no longer Spider-Man, but rather Tarzan (analogy of Smectala).
Smetana also mentioned that it would be possible to control transport only in one mission (other movement methods seem more interesting to the authors). In addition, the team is now preparing a large portion of information about the infected.
Dying Light 2 is announced for PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and S. On new consoles, the game will offer three modes of operation, and on consoles of the past generation, it will function with dignity.
