Dying Light 2
 
Quote:

Dying Light 2 has been announced during Microsoftís Xbox E3 2018 conference, and itís a bold step forward for Techlandís post-apocalyptic, open-world parkour series. First and foremost, legendary game designer and writer Chris Avellone is working on the project, which is a unique vision of the Modern Dark Ages. Following the zombie outbreak, society has broken down and various factions have sprung up to try and control the situation.

I went through like four different sets of pants when they showed those vids!

Still can’t get into Dying Light. Will possibly skip this.

Do a few main quests. You should be hooked after a few hours of play.

Did you enter your first night? It wasnt until i was forced to be outside at night that i started to really enjoy the game. Once i did though, it became one of my all time favourites, AND i found i eventually enjoyed the day and the night equally.

KAC Jun 12, 2018 03:45 AM

I skip the night. My problem is I keep running out of items and crafting and searching is so cumbersome. Plus dying makes me lose experience so I just feel like I take one step forward and two steps back. Doesn’t help that I don’t play it for extended periods and coming back to it becomes a chore.

clerick Jun 12, 2018 04:06 AM

Can't wait, enjoyed the first one.

I's cool man, you dont have to enjoy everything. If you dont like it you dont like it. I would think though that if losing experience (i didnt know this was a thing) for dying i a problem for you, maybe try it on an easier difficulty? I personally really enjoyed the story of both this and the expansion. Maybe give it one more try on the easiest difficulty seeing as you already own the game, and if that doesnt do it for you, just uninstall it. There are plenty of other games for you to enjoy :)

nutcrackr Jun 12, 2018 05:20 AM

Odd that they didn't show the zombies in the trailer apart from at the end.

Thr0tt Jun 12, 2018 09:40 AM

May be worth a shot. Just uninstalled the first one as the expansion was such a chore, did a couple of main quests then it told me to help locals to get noticed which I have no idea what was needed, did a couple of side quests, got bored and uninstalled.

I hope (DL2) is not too open world i.e. you have a start middle and end to the game.

KingRoLo Jun 12, 2018 02:19 PM

Yeah I got bored with the first one as well however this trailer has got me interested again.

fleetnorton Jun 12, 2018 10:29 PM

I really love the first one. Can't wait for this

Xplode Jun 12, 2018 11:16 PM

Favorite game of e3 so far! looks amazing

Megaman Jun 13, 2018 12:50 AM

Should be interesting. I think it may be difficult to top the first one.

Evileh Jun 13, 2018 06:38 AM

Night = no ****ing way are you nuts???!!!???

the_sextein Jun 13, 2018 10:24 AM

I'm very happy to see this. Chris Avellone wrote the greatest story in RPG history and the first dying light is my favorite survival horror game of all time. It also ranks up there pretty high on my list for open world RPG hybrid games.

My interest in gaming has nearly disappeared over the years. It's not that I don't like to game it's that the gaming industry has slowly changed it's games to cater to the masses that don't want real games. It's mostly competitive games that twist all genre's into multiplayer sports games or casual skin deep games that require no skill or intelligence. Even Resident Evil 7 and the last doom bored the heck out of me.

Doom really let me down. It's environments felt like cheaply snapped together multiplayer arena's and the gameplay while fun, got boring and repetitive within a couple hours. I never finished either of them. I admit that my expectations are higher now, after all I enjoyed the original doom very much and it wasn't much different but that was in a time when people had never even seen a 3D video game before. Doom 3 impressed me more than the last one simply because it had an art style that didn't feel uninspired.

I think STALKER was the last game that truly made me happy until Dying light came along. Dying light copied styles from other games like Farcry that are decent enough but blended them in a way that was unique and fun. What really sets it apart is the environment and gameplay balance. It's set up to reward players that immerse themselves deeply and play a long time with deep gameplay and lots of fine details to see. It also requires that you pay attention and use smarts when maneuvering around the city and equipping your character. It's unapologetically hard as well. I've beaten nightmare mode with a fresh level one character two times now because it's a rare challenge that you don't see these days. (Without modding anyway.) The Farcry name continues to be the same old formula kicked out every year and has gotten stale. Dying Light 2 is the only game on my radar this year but it looks like it might be a real winner. It seems like the good games that actually cater toward the PC and next generation graphics are usually from Russia or Germany now. The suits haven't throttled the creative life out of their development teams to satisfy the stock market in those countries. Even GTA is now an online **** fest of quick gratification and stale gameplay. I really hope this delivers.

I'll probably buy the new metro too. Single player on rails shooters are not my thing but it reminds me of stalker glory and it utilizing PC graphic cards for a change. I wish development teams like this could get a decent budget to do a high quality open world game like Dying Light 2. Hitman 2 could be good as well. Team IOI are very talented and have a vision for what THEY want. The last Hitman game was good at it's core but the episodic content spread it out too much and they had to add tons of soulless filler that didn't fit the game in order to keep people engaged until the next episode. They were making tons of optional check list garbage that was set up to satisfy Steam achievement hoarders. It's nice that WB decided to produce for them like they are for Dying light's development team. Square Enix was killing them trying to change the game for the mainstream masses. They nearly sold out the entire staff with Absolution. Reminds me of what EA did to Bioware.

Ok gays. One final shot.

the_sextein Jun 14, 2018 04:10 PM

Looks like they not only hired Chris Avellone but writers from CD project red as well. I have a feeling that this story and it's interactivity with your role playing decisions is going to break into new territory.

https://www.vg247.com/2018/06/14/dyi...ron-witcher-3/

Also they are saying that the map is 4 times larger than Dying light's maps and it's expansion combined.

https://www.pcgamesn.com/dying-light...ight-2-setting

They made a pretty penny off of Dying Light and thanks to the Walking Dead the zombie theme still hasn't died completely from the mainstream. It looks like they have reinvested much of their profits to build the most ambitious game of the year.

That sounds great to me. I never expected much from Dying Light due to the fact that I just didn't think anything really new would be added to the Dead Island formula. I was very happy to be wrong there lol.

Very much looking forward to this. :up:

g-a-m-e Jun 24, 2018 03:33 PM

I want this now, really bad. But, it will be 2019, or even 2020 right ?

Destroy Jun 25, 2018 07:31 AM

Is Dying Light part of the Dead Island series? They certainly look very similar.

I think it's a lot of the same devs. I vaguely remember one of them saying that Dying light was what they originally hoped Dead Island would be, or something to that effect.

KAC Jun 25, 2018 08:26 AM

It’s made by the same company, Techland.

the_sextein Jun 25, 2018 04:25 PM

Dead Island was made by the same guys that did Dying Light but the publisher forced the dev team to include a bunch of silly stuff that the devs didn't want in the game. The original trailer for dead island was more in line with what Techland wanted to do and it didn't match the game they ended up making So they left Deepsilver and joined WB. Dying Light is more representative of what Techland actually wanted to make in the first place and is way more popular. Dead Island 2 is being made by a different developer under the Deepsilver name because Deepsilver owns the rights to the dead island trademark. If you look it up you will see that it's a very silly looking game. Pretty much what Deepsilver wants.

Techland is now producing it's own games and doing what they want. Mature and gritty Dying Light games with a serious undertone.

Techland has not given an official release date for Dying Light 2 but they have confirmed that it will be released in 2019.

Think of it as a spiritual sequel. It's main difference is the night time change and parkour movements, but it's pretty similar in other ways.

Not many though. There are zombies, and there are weapons that you can craft that degrade over use. Thats like it?
