Announcement and Gameplay: Dying Light 2 E3 Trailers

The news came from Tymon Smektala, lead designer on Dying Light 2, while speaking on YouTube Gaming's post-show stream.

I'm sure you have a few questions about the studio's tantalising follow-up to that sleeper hit, but don't fret.

Dying Light was a fairly popular game, so it's not surprising that it would get a sequel. For years now, Techland has supported the game through updates, expansions, and new game modes.

Techland has revealed the first official details and screenshots for Dying Light 2, its bold sequel to the best-selling open world title.

Your DOOM guy will also be even more powerful then before, while it also looks like id Software is bringing Hell on Earth. Bethesda revealed Doom: Eternal during its Electronic Entertainment Expo event today in Los Angeles.

Dying Light 2 will be heading to Xbox One at some point in the future.

As for who you'll be playing as, that's unclear, but it sure sounds like noted voice actor Troy Baker in those trailers, so hopefully this new protagonist will be somewhat more charismatic than Dying Light's archetypal snooze-fest Kyle Crane.

In Dying Light 2, the plot is an organic, reactive entity that can weave in multiple directions, depending on how you decide to respond to situations in the zombie apocalypse. As you explore, you'll be "carving out your own world".

Smektala also said that first-person combat would be more tactical than the previous game - pushing you to constantly move, observe your enemies so you can respond to their actions, and look out for parts of the environment that can be interacted with to give you an advantage in combat. Across the story, the melee combat, the parkour movement, and other aspects of the game, we're giving players a completely new level of freedom.
