The second episode of Dying Light 2’s Dying To Know series will be broadcast on July 1 at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET on developer Techland’s Twitch channel. Next week’s topic hints at a deep dive into the various infected people that you’ll encounter in the game, with an emphasis on the volatile humans who emerge at night.
“Night is coming, and with it, the nightmares, who hide in their nests during the day, awaken,” Techland said in a press release. “It’s a chance for us to get supplies to restore the remnants of hope in the hearts of the few loved ones we have and grow our lives on the rooftops. But before you hit the streets, you need to know what’s hiding in the darkness. The reward is high, but the price you will pay if you stay in the dark for too long will be even higher.”
In the first Dying Light, daytime expeditions usually involved avoiding the hordes of infected people who roamed the streets. With strength in numbers, it was easy to pick off an infected person on their own and challenging to take on an entire horde.
Once the sun went down though, Volatile, Bolter, and Hunter variants would roam the streets. These infected were faster and more dangerous, but braving the streets while they were active would result in more valuable loot being found. Just don’t refer to them as zombies.
Techland also hosted its first Dying Light 2 AMA, which touched on topics such as handmade weapons and the ramifications of choices made in the game. The long-in-development sequel is coming out on December 7 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC.
