Dying Light 2 gets new trailer with stunning parkour gameplay.

Gamescom 2021 kicked off with the Xbox presentation at the event, which brought a new trailer for Dying Light 2 Stay Human focused on showcasing parkour gameplay and the ways the player will have to cross the city.

According to the Techland studio, parkour is a fundamental part of the game. It promises that players will be able to traverse the City with a dynamism never seen before, thanks to the development of an advanced parkour system, as well as a mixture of movement and combat.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is out December 7 for PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam and Epic Games Store).

Crossing the street is no small feat in the Modern Dark Ages. A crazy looter here, an enraged Infected there… Nobody just goes out shopping anymore. Usually the best way to overcome danger is to be even greater danger yourself. Fortunately, Dying Light 2: Stay Human offers two connected mechanics to keep you in control: Parkour and creative combat.

The Modern Dark Ages are what they sound like: An age of decadence. A degenerate world where there is no law or advanced technology. A world where everyone fends for themselves (or just a close circle of allies). In this world, if the guy across the street is approaching you, he sure as hell isn’t looking for a friendly conversation. That’s why parkour is so important: it lets you go to a supply depot or leave a battle you shouldn’t have chosen. You’ll have plenty of chances to appreciate your ability to move around with ease, especially as the city now has more vertical layers, giving you more opportunities to dodge your enemies. A lot more.

Techland’s designers paid a lot of attention to parkour animations. There are thousands of them, making navigation incredibly fluid. We wanted to make it as close to the real world as possible while keeping all the moves fun and easy to perform. But what takes exploration to the next level is your new set of skills – and equipment! Oh yes, you don’t have to rely on your body alone. From the new paraglider to the ever-useful grappling hook, you’ll be able to make your runs more epic – and often, they’ll take place hundreds of meters above street level. There are also ropes to swing from, rope bridges, trampolines, elevators – you name it. Of course, you’ll need some practice before you can fully master navigation.

However, to ensure your survival in the game, it is not necessary just to move. Parkour is like the yin to the yang of creative combat. Combine the two and you really have the chance to see one more sunrise! In Dying Light 2: Stay Human, how you approach enemies can – and should – be different after you consider a few factors. First, the faction you’re allied with may impose (or favor) a certain playstyle. Some like to get close to the enemy, others prefer to be more subtle. But at the end of the day, you choose how you play, so another thing to look at is who you’re up against. Between the infected and the various surviving factions in the city, everyone will try to take you down differently. Some enemies will act alone, others will work in a group. It’s good to be aware of different behavior patterns and identify what kind of weapons your enemies are carrying.

Weapons, both melee and ranged, are a big part of Dying Light 2: Stay Human. You’ll instantly be able to identify what kind of weapon your enemy is using. It could be something rudimentary and improvised, made from car parts, or some antique stolen from a museum. The lucky ones can carry military-grade gear, like a rifle found in an abandoned vehicle. Each weapon can also be modified, not just to increase its durability or overall damage, but to help you apply a certain playstyle or react to specific situations. Adding special effects like fire, electricity or bleeding can greatly influence your tactics.

It’s all about creativity. The rich weapon modification system, combined with parkour skills, allows you to invent new ways to approach enemies. But beware: your enemies aren’t stupid…Well, not all of them, anyway! Some will use group tactics against you, so pick your battles wisely and know when to regroup.
