A year ago we took to the stage at the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing to announce Dying Light 2, an ambitious sequel to our award winning open world survival horror action game. A lot has happened since then and we decided it’s time to introduce you to the new protagonist, Aiden Caldwell – so we brought a fitting trailer with us to LA.
The trailer gives you a first glimpse of Aiden, an infected survivor, as he navigates the last great human settlement – The City. It’s been 15 years since the virus took over the world. Primal post-apocalyptic reality pushed humanity to the verge of extinction, as morals decayed, trust in authorities eroded and brutal factions fight for power and scant resources, while monstrosities born of the plague lurk in dark buildings ready to reclaim the streets after dusk.
Even in these Modern Dark Ages there is a spark of hope. Aiden’s exceptional parkour skills and brutal combat ability make him a valuable asset in the crumbling metropolis and a force capable of bringing change. Through Aiden, you will make impactful choices that will not only determine the fate of The City, but also uniquely shape the world around you. Tread carefully, as every decision counts.
There’s one more thing that we need to mention on this occasion. The score heard both in the trailer and our E3 demo came from acclaimed video game composer Olivier Deriviere (A Plague Tale: Innocence, Vampyr, Remember Me, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry). We are happy to announce that Deriviere will be continuing to compose for the full game.
Powered by the C-Engine, a new generation of our in-house technology, Dying Light 2 is set to be released on PC, Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, and the PlayStation 4 in Spring 2020. The game will be published by Techland and distributed by Square Enix in the Americas.
