There is less and less so we can enjoy Dying Light 2, the expected sandbox with zombies and parkour for PC and consoles. After a few months of uncertainty and several delays, it seems that the Techland title will see the light this year 2021, and we already have new details.
We have told you that Dying Light 2 can be played in cooperative mode and that the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be up to the task, but now Techland has revealed new details. Is about its open world and how we can interact with it; months ago its creators already commented that they wanted to create a world rich and full of possibilities.
In an interview with Wccftech, designer Lucasz Burka commented that Dying Light 2’s map will be much bigger and richer than its predecessor. Specifically, it will be four times bigger than in the first game, and we can explore every corner with total freedom.
” Estimating that Dying Light 2’s map is four times bigger than the original game it is the most accurate we can provide. Dying Light 2’s map is much more vertical and offers many more exploration opportunities, so the city feels even bigger than it is, ” Techland explains.
Another point of interest highlighted by the creators of Dying Light 2 is how they have designed the city and the different environments, but without neglecting the balance between the narrative and the gameplay. This sequel will be longer than its predecessor, with an estimated duration of 20 hours just for the main mission.
” It also took us some time finalize the design of the city, a game mechanic that allows you to shape the playable elements that appear in the game. In the early stages of the project, the mechanics were really complex, but then we realized that we weren’t doing a strategy game, and what we had to do was to slow down the player’s progress a lot. In the end, the hard part was figuring out how to balance the two. ”
