Techland has made a name for itself as a studio of the classics. Call Of Juarez was a prime example to support that claim, and so was Dead Island. The two games have won themselves so many dedicated fans that their sequels were sure things. With the success of these titles, Techland has an ample opportunity to develop its ability.

Call Of Juarez and Dead Island are not something everyone will love but no one can deny that if it had not been for these two games, Dying Light would never be released. This title debuted in 2015 and back then, it caught the attention of millions of players. And when Dying Light 2 is about to be released, let’s look back on its predecessor.

Dying Light is excellent in every way

Dying Light was an excellent title in every way. Player’s experience was exhilarating as the movement was extremely smooth. When the characters jump from rooftop to rooftop or from tree to tree, we could feel for ourselves the speed and the momentum. All of these things are put against a backdrop of a soul-stirring city, which, in turn, enhances the overall sensory experience. As a visceral melee combat, its players found enjoyment in slaughtering zombies. The day-night circle helps weave the stories together creating a long-lasting impression. All of this encourages Techland to expand the story even more with Dying Light 2.

This sequel comes as no surprise for the gaming community. The trailer showed at E3 2018 and the information that the game will be on all main platforms in the near future act as only a confirmation for what fans had projected long before.

Dying Light 2 is coming soon

In Dying Light 2, the studio has pinpointed every key feature fans love about the first version and elevate them to a whole new level. The list of improvement includes combat, free-running movement, and co-operative system. However, that is not everything Techland envisions for Dying Light 2. This time, the studio wants each player to create their own storyline by weaving choices and consequences into the game. This is not a new trick for Techland as it has done the same thing for nearly 20 years now.

Techland has high ambition for Dying Light 2. They want to create a world that can pull in players and keep them engaged for even years. And to do that, they created a version of the Dark Ages in modern time. This feature has a lot in common with what happens in Game Of Throne season 8.

The grappling hook will be back

Despite being a well-loved feature, the grappling hook actually interrupts the parkour movement so the studio did not let players have it until they have advanced deep into the game. It was kind of a reward for those who have mastered the freerunning. Dying Light 2 will have this feature fixed so the hook will not break the movement again.
