Dying Light 2: Staying Alive feels like the forgotten February release, sandwiched between juggernauts like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West – but the original co-op zombiethon was a huge hit for Polish developer Techland, and we certainly wouldn’t rule out its sequel from repeating that success. Delays have definitely blunted enthusiasm for the follow-up, but it feels like it’s on the home straight now.
Part of that last lap to launch includes drip-feeding little pieces of trivia, like this one: there are over 500 different pieces of unique gear in the final game. That’s a lot of shoes, jackets, gloves, et al – presumably all with different properties and buffs. Building loadouts is a big part of the fun in games of this ilk, so it’s reassuring to learn that there’ll be plenty of variety to play around with. And if the first entry is anything to go by, there’ll be no shortage of post-release support either.
Dying Light 2: Staying Alive? This isn’t the Bee Gees, Sammy. It’s Stay Human! 😂
@LiamCroft hahahah oh wow guess we know what sammy was listening to on the radio today!
🎵More than a zombie, more than a zombie to meeeeeeee🎵
I thought they would have released a PS5 patch for the first game by now. Would have been good to play through it again before the next one
This title is misleading, sounds like there would be extra gear for Playstation that other systems will not get. I know, you always add „PS5, PS4“ for Google, but please make it a bit cleverer. Thank you!
@Max_the_German they get me every time as well, especially when I don't see my xbox sites report on the news.
@LiamCroft maybe it's the special day-one edition.. and the zombies are all wearing bell bottoms and your 'nades make them dance
The Staying Alive blunder is hilarious.
I am so excited for this game; loved the first one and this looks great so far. The main thing I hope is that decisions do genuinely matter and alter the game. Haven’t seen an awful lot on this talked about, just in passing, but hoping it’s significant enough.
I feel so sorry for this game coming out in the same month as Horizon 2 and Elden Ring, its going to be fantastic but its going to be overlooked because of those two.
Finished the first one and it was an okay game (wasn't fun but it's a game, so I'm playing it). I thought it was because I slept through the night (as the game told me once), I'm a wimp so turns out I missed half the game. Didn't find batting zombies around fun, which is kinda wierd because I expected it to be funny (for some reason wierd ragdoll physics make me laugh)
Lost any interest I had. There was more than enough inventory screen time on the first one without changi No thanks to looter shooters!
I am looking forward to this game as much as Horizon and have both on Pre order!
Spent a huge amount of time on the first game and it's dlc and the sequel has been one of my most anticipated games.Can.Not.Wait!
@Max_the_German Why? This is a PS only site.... this same thing happens in the Nintendo site and Xbox site... they don't add the other systems on their headlines even if whatever they are talking is also coming there.
If it was exclusive to the system, they will had added the word exclusive on the title.
I'm looking forward to this more than the likes of horizon and elden ring. Please don't be rubbish.
Because you've all enjoyed it so much, I'm leaving the error in!
@get2sammyb If it’s not called this the next time you write an article about it, you’re the next person to be ‘cancelled’!
@itsfoz Haha, oh it will!
Saw an ad for this on YT recently where the editor seemed to forget there were zombies in the game. It only had human combat lol Looks decent, though.
@get2sammyb Consistency is key.
Dying Light is my favorite zombie game to date so yea DL2 is my current most wanted. I hope it plays well on my old PRO.
With all the gear maybe we will get a nasty flamethrower so we can "Burn Baby Burn, Zombie Inferno."
Hopefully its interesting pieces and not just color changes for some gear.
It’s a first person game, equipment is the last thing i care in this games. Can’t wait to play it though, it looks amazing in presentation.
Definitely getting this at some point but I'm getting horizon first, then once I'm done with that will have a look at the prices for elden ring and this and take it from there. I tend to only play one game at a time I can't jump between games for some reason. So the Feb line up for me is great because otherwise I would probably pick them all up day one if they were not so close to each other, so will save some money lol.
