    I've been waiting for dying light 2 since I first heard it was coming. Saw a gameplay trailer and instantly fell in love with the new parkour. I'm glad they aren't rushing it. Don't want another cyberpunk 2077 (Which I bought on release day)

    Played it in 2021...don't think it's really that great...my opinion tho... missions are dumb.. story is meh...super repetitive..only good thing is the Parkour

    great game, severely marred by lack of controller options.

    My only complaint with Dying light was the guns. Like yes I know guns have to have some semblance of balance so that NPCs don't one tap you but how the heck does does a knife do more damage than a assault rifle?!

    Hey I was a master with this game, I left the fallowing only bc I heard of the second dying light forevermore ago. The game us the reason I got ps4, nothing can beat it in the zombie aspect an is in the top 500 games of all time. Dying light two should be in the tip top 100

    I have put a lot of time into the game simply because there is no other like it. The amount of work the team (Techland) has continued to put into the game for their fans is mind blowing and one reason why I will always support Techland and Dying Light. They never gave up or stopped to make sure they continue to let their fans know they love them. To all the impatient, spoiled bastards out there that gave them hate comments, emails and messages ya'll don't even deserve to play Dying Light 2 when the game releases.

    The grappling hook is definitely needed for dying light 2 cool parkour and combat moves cool advanced Melee weapons and guns also cool stealth takedown

    Guns are waay to overpowered! I've only played in normal but as soon as i could get a gun and was able to buy ammo i could mow down about 40 zombies with an ar in a short amount of time.

    Yeah I like how guns are one of the rarest and most double edged things in a game, zombies come flying off of roofs towards you, literally in the first outbreak zone

    I just finished the game and The Following expansion. Holy shit it's really good! Only gripe I have is the Rais "boss fight" and The Following's downer endings. Other than that it's a really good time. I'm looking forward to the sequel now.

    Dont forget the multiplayer, an invasion-style pvp system where a player controlled mutant enters your world and hunts you down. so many crazy moments like taking out the mutant by throwing my machete at it in mid air, or driving the buggy through the field and hearing it flying after you while you try to avoid the zombies in front of you. Great times

    The whole generation was full of open world sandbox titles. Dying light just had such a great movement system, and felt way ahead of its time. The main quest was eh but everything else was perfect.

    Can you all believe this, I got a email from you know who, saying the 2015 base game was big it needed internet to update files, and they never put the DLC the following on a disc, also tryd to get a voucher from them because I bought a new copy of dying light anniversary edition, and had no voucher in it for the anniversary bundle / hell raid, but the Xbox version has all DLC on the disk, omg I don't see tech land doing anygood with dying light 2

    DL is up there for one of my favourite all time games, the amount of fun and great memories I had with my mates playing the multilayer campaign was so good. The feeling of having nto get back before dark was intense, the night is so scary lol

  • MC Chubbems

    Honestly I’ve played through DL a lot of times now lost count by this point I’ve done every quest over and over gotten all the secrets and weapons multiple times and I’ve loved every second now though my interest has dwindled because ya know I also play other games to but I still hop in a co op game and help out some newer players. That’s always a good feeling when ya help a new player through a hard ass quest and then you just get them used to the game Tbh never had a dull moment in the game always had fun. I’d say the only downsides are sometimes the parkour is glitchy mostly at the com towers god I hate climbing those things but no matter still a fantastic game and I can’t wait for DL2

    my personal opinion you guys are underselling it. The reason i loved dying light so much is that you could do anything you think of. You will need some skills but there were millions and millions of stuff to do and almost all the things you can come up with were possible. What looks to be with Dying light 2 even more
