Techland have turned a focus on the environmental storytelling in the latest episode of the ongoing “Dying 2 Know More” series for the upcoming Dying Light 2. In the episode, world director Thomas Gerbaud shares how the developers have packed in worldbuilding and story development, bringing to life the world of Dying Light 2 “through a hoard of immersive detail”.
From hidden tapes detailing stories of the fall of civilization to graffiti, settlement laws, and even an analogue version of a “dating app” created by one inhabitant, survivors have cobbled together a new society in the 15 years following its dissolution. Every location within The City is filled with minute details that “make the world feel more textured and complex”.
Dying Light 2 arrives February 4th, 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
