In spite of its troubled development and multiple delays, Dying Light 2 developer Techland has been sharing updates and details on the upcoming game much more frequently of late. Recently, they started uploading AMA videos to answer questions from fans, and in another video they’ve released a few more details about the game.

Specifically, when asked about the game’s open world and how it will compare to the first Dying Light, associate producer Julia Szynkaruk said that Dying Light 2’s open world is going to have a lot more to do, not just in terms of events and encounters, but also in terms of areas to explore.

“Yes, there will be a lot more open world events in Dying Light 2,” Szynkaruk said (transcribed by MP1st). “Not only will we have a living world with encounters all over, but also you will be able to explore new locations, such as GRE Quaratines or Dark Places.”

Meanwhile, lead game designer Tymon Smektala also said that though Dying Light 2 is going to be a choice-based games, as far as aligning with the factions in the game goes, you will not have the option to not align with anyone whatsoever.

“You have to understand that our world is extremely brutal, extremely primal, full of threats and conflicts,” he said. “So, if you have no allies, you basically die very quickly — and we don’t want you to die very quickly, and we also want you to make a decision,  we also want you to make a statement. So a lone wolf option is not available, you will have to decide if you want to play with those guys or the other ones.”

Dying Light 2 currently has no firm release date. It’s in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. On next-gen consoles, the game will support 4K, 60 FPS, and ray-tracing across multiple graphics modes. Read more on that through here. Meanwhile, Techland is also working to ensure that the game is properly optimized on PS4 and Xbox One.
