Dying Light 2 (opens in new tab), Techland's upcoming open world action game, is about to make a big splash at this year's Gamescom expo in Cologne, Germany, with a fresh, extended look at its unique blend of first-person parkour/zombie-bashing gameplay.
Previously shown behind closed doors at E3 2019 (opens in new tab), the roughly 30 minute demo will be streamed online at 11AM PT/2PM ET/7PM BST on Monday, August 26, and promises to be "the largest piece of Dying Light 2 gameplay released to date."
On The Radar: Dying Light 2 (opens in new tab) – An exclusive look at one of the most anticipated action games of the generation
Our Dying Light 2 E3 2019 preview (opens in new tab) gives you a good idea of what you can expect from the upcoming gameplay reveal, which focuses on the narrative sandbox of Techland's new open world, which reacts organically to the choices you make as Aiden, the sequel's new protagonist.
There'll also be a better look at Dying Light 2's enhanced parkour system, combat mechanics, and story, all of which are set to mark a major improvement over everything seen in 2015's Dying Light (opens in new tab), which thousands of people are still playing to this day (opens in new tab).
In other news, Techland has already confirmed that Dying Light 2 will be a cross-gen title (opens in new tab) for PS5 (opens in new tab) and Xbox Project Scarlett (opens in new tab) in addition to current consoles, and that a small team within the studio are still working on new DLC for the original game (opens in new tab). We'll be sure to keep you informed once the new gameplay drops, too, and stay tuned to GamesRadar+ for more Dying Light 2 coverage in the lead up to its early 2020 release.
