It’s the beginning of Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s release rollout! Here’s what players need to know.
Wrocław, Poland — 4 February 2022 — Dying Light 2 Stay Human will be available starting today on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. After 7 years of production, Techland has released their latest title and most ambitious game to-date focused on parkour and combat mechanics—an expansive game filled with open-world activities, the electrifying colors of the Modern Dark Ages era, resonant choices to be made, and an alternating day-night system.
In Dying Light 2 Stay Human, players will be able to shape the future of The City with their actions and watch how it changes. Determine the balance of power with your choices amid the growing conflict and forge your own experience. In this game, you can be both brutal and creative in your combat. You must rely on your parkour and fighting abilities to survive, supported by over two hundred weapons, more than twenty inventive weapon mods, and dozens of power moves. Those looking for the best equipment should wait until night to venture out into the dark hideouts of the Infected. Sunlight keeps them at bay, but once it’s gone, these monsters leave their lairs, leaving the player free to explore and begin the hunt.
This game is designed to give you a rich, immersive experience in its single-player campaign but also fully supports a 4-person cooperative mode that allows you to play through the story and even finish the game together with your friends. Based on the choices made by the game host, you may find the world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human takes on a whole new shape altogether.
Players should know Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s core gameplay mechanic of parkour was supported by the father of parkour himself, David Belle. He not only models and provides motion capture for one of the main characters in the game, Hakon, but he also helped Techland create parkour moves that look and feel real.
But David Belle is not the only big star here! American movie star Rosario Dawson, also known for her role as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian, has been cast as one of the game’s main characters: the rebellious and independant Lawan. Moreover, the main protagonist, Aiden Caldwell, is voiced by Jonah Scott, an influencer, streamer, and voice actor celebrated for his work in multiple games and anime series.
The English language version of Dying Light 2 Stay Human features, among others…
- Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian, Dopesick, Daredevil, Sin City) as the independent Lawan
- Jonathan Forbes (Vampyr, Black Mirror) as Hakon, Aiden’s mysterious guide
- Jonah Scott, a star of video games and anime like BEASTARS, Sk8 the Infinity, and Attack on Titan, as Aiden Caldwell
