On The Radar: Dying Light 2 (opens in new tab) – An exclusive look at one of the most anticipated games of the generation
We previously knew very little about the central plot of Dying Light 2, but this story-focused trailer gives us a good idea of the heroes, villains, and zombies at the heart of the events surrounding your adventures in the game's decaying urban jungle setting known only as The City.
Speaking of, Techland has also revealed that Dying Light 2's main protagonist is a chap by the name of Aiden Caldwell (sorry, Kyle Crane fans), "an infected survivor whose high-flying parkour skills and brutal combat ability make him a valuable asset in this crumbling metropolis."
Previously, the game had been slated for a 2019 release, but Techland has now confirmed a Spring 2020 window, with a more specific date to be locked down at a later time. In any case, Dying Light 2 will be released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year, and it's already looking like one of the best zombie games (opens in new tab) that money can buy.
