As Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s launch draws near, Techland is finally answering some of the community’s most-asked-about questions.
The studio showed off co-op gameplay during a Thursday presentation. Up to four players can tear through the zombie apocalypse together as, like the original Dying Light, the entire campaign is available in co-op. This time, the twist is that everyone can vote for which story option they want when there are narrative options. Strangely, the host of a game session decides with whom to play.
You can see a snippet of co-op gameplay below; just jump to the 4: 12 mark if playing the video doesn’t take you there automatically.
In addition to the extra gameplay systems coming in Dying Light 2 Stay Human, you’ll also keep any progress made in someone else’s sessions. This includes experience points and items.
Finally, Techland chose to cap off the show with an official launch trailer, so check it out for yourself below.
It certainly looks like Dying Light 2 Stay Human will attempt to deliver a solid narrative. Thankfully you don’t need to have gone through the first game to understand what’s happening in this one — it won’t take 500 hours either.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human comes out Feb. 4 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
