Dying Light 2 is probably one of the most awaited games in 2021. With the success of the first title, players can't wait to enjoy another zombie parkour game from Techland. Dying Light 2 was first introduced in E3 2018 with a trailer but there has been barely any Dying Light 2 news in 2019. The game was delayed to 2020 but then the COVID-19 pandemic strike, pushing everything back even further.

1. Dying Light 2 Expected Release Date

In a recent Dying Light 2 update video from the devs, it revealed that the game is set to be released this year, 2021, since... the number 2021 appears at the end of the video. It is obvious that even they don't know exactly when they can release the game. Otherwise, their message is pretty loud and clear, the game is still under development and we will just have to wait for the Dying Light 2 release date in the future.

The studio said that they need to delay the game in order to developer the story further to make the game worth the expectation from fans.

"Delaying the game opened opportunities to nail down the story part of the game, choices our players can make, as well as up the level of open world opportunities that player will face,"

2. Dying Light 2 Trailer and Gameplay

The Dying Light 2 trailer was released in E3 2018, giving us a glimpse of what is going to be in this sequel.

In E3 2019, a demo of Dying Light 2 was released, giving fans a good look at the game with the new impressive parkour system, combat, and choice-driven story. We also get to see different gadgets such as swinging hook, glider,... You can use parkour as means of evasion, traversal, and offense. We can see the player jump up, grab onto a pipe hanging from the ceiling to kick the smuggler off the building.

In the demo video of Dying Light 2, we get to see tons of cool parkour moves such as wall-running, vaulting through the tops of doorways, sliding under tables,... You will traverse through a big modern European city that is four times bigger than the original map. Around the city are banners of factions, broken clock towers, and windmills.

The world in Dying Light will be bigger and of course, with more depth to it to keep players engaged wherever they go around the city. However, this also means that game might suffer from bugs and glitches just like CyberPunk 2077, which can totally ruin the playing experience.

The city is ruled by many different factions. Some will help you, some with cooperate with you, while some will find all the ways to kill you. Once you ally with a faction, the city will be transformed (both physically and tonally). The two factions we know so far are the Peacekeepers and the Scavengers.

The Peacekeepers will try to rule the place whenever they can with an iron fist while the Scavengers are more like free runners.

The main story of Dying Light 2 will take about 20 hours to finish. To experience all the content in the game will take about 100 hours or more. It is an open-world game after all, so it really depends on what you do in the game.
