“The well of ideas is infinite” – Techland on Dying Light 2 DLC expectations and next game hints

Dying Light had a fast but perilous climb to the top – so it’s a good thing it’s excellent at parkour. The first game was a sleeper success, launching in a quiet January in 2015 where more people were inclined to take a chance on its sometimes unrefined – but ultimately compelling – open-world leaping, ragdoll zombie-squishing formula. Dying Light 2 launched well, and has only gotten stronger since. But where the original was spritely and free, skipping right to the forefront gaming’s big franchises while major publishers were looking the other way, Dying Light 2: Stay Human was being…

Don’t expect Dying Light 2 story DLC “to take you to space or something like that”… yet

Dying Light 2 lead designer, Tymon Smektala, hints at where Techland’s undead action game may be heading over the next five years. Techland really has bolted out the gate with Dying Light 2; the follow-up to the hugely popular undead survival-cum-parkour game has already sold five million copies. And that was just in its first month! The series as a whole clearly has appeal, too, surpassing 20 million sales in its lifetime. Dying Light, it’s fair to say, is a franchise that’s here to stay. You know where you are? You’re in the (urban) jungle, baby. You’re gonna die. Part…

Game length does matter, but it’s right to be skeptical about grand boasts

Dying Light 2 has received some flack over its 500 hours to complete claim, but that’s because we’ve become weary of bloat. Over the weekend, the internet was once again up in arms over something video game related. Taking a break from rightfully dunking on (but perhaps inadvertently promoting) NFT nonsense, it was the turn of Dying Light 2 to feel the flames of outrage. The game’s social account put out a statement that the zombie survival parkour open-world sequel would take 500 hours (about 3 weeks) to complete. Boom. That is an outrage. There has now long been a…
