  • Dying Light 2 announced at Microsoft's E3 2018 event

Chris Avellone, a seasoned role-playing game writer, showed the game off at Microsoft's Xbox event ahead of E3.

The centerpiece of the debut was choices with genuine consequences.

Set 15 years after the initial zombie outbreak, Dying Light 2's post-apocalyptic setting is borderline fantastical, a big departure from the vaguely Middle-Eastern setting of the first game. In this exhausted world, your quick thinking, exceptional parkour abilities and brutal combat skills are the only things that let you dive into darkness and emerge alive. You'll still parkour around the city in first person, fighting humans and zombies alike with all manner of hand-crafted weaponry.


No firm release date was given for Dying Light 2, but hopefully a 2019 launch window isn't out of the picture for this much anticipated sequel, and you can expect a release for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

You can insert all your *It's happening!* gif right here, folks, because Dying Light 2 is real, and it looks absolutely fantastic. For the first time in the franchise, players will have the power to decide the fate of a decaying metropolis with their own choices and actions. They will affect the events that happen in the game, the environment, and other aspects of the game.
