The Story Of Dying Light 2:
The story of Dying Light 2 takes place 15 years after the apocalypse. With the viral outbreak still looming over the world and with no end in sight. With 98% of the population of the world being evaporated and turned into zombie-like creatures. The only thing the other lucky 2% can do in this world is to try and survive as long as they can. Creating a new world on top of the old civilization that used to stand there in its place. In the first game, you played Kyle Crane who is sent out on a mission by the GRE.
This time around you will be playing Aiden Caldwell. He is an outsider who is looking to unravel a mystery from his own past. This is what leads Aiden to the brutal city. You will meet the Night Riders who will help you along the way. The voiceover also hints at something shady going on with the Night Riders as well. Another mystery that Aiden will have to figure out as he goes on.
With factions struggling to take power in the city. You will be able to help specific factions or fight against them to reach your goals. And depending on the faction you choose, the story and terrain will also change. With each faction having interesting characters and backstories, it will be up to you to choose amongst them. Of course, there are some that offer no alliance. With bandits and goons roaming the city who are aiming for nothing more than chaos.
Good Night And Good Luck
While these factions, bandits, and goons are people you have to worry about during the day. The monsters you have to avoid at night are another story altogether. As night comes, the infected pour into the streets, and this time we get to see some interesting mutations of these monsters as well. Which are an even greater threat. As the infected monsters are something you can not escape from by entering buildings. As they have infested most buildings and can come out of hiding from unexpected places.
While the night is dangerous, it is also the time when players will have interesting opportunities as well. Nests that are filled with infested are empty during the night. But you must be careful as you explore them. As they will still have some infested crawling inside protecting the nest. And if you are brave enough to go inside the nest, you will be rewarded with interesting bounties.
Mastering The Art Of Survival In Dying Light 2
Dying Light 2 will give your character extraordinary parkour skills. This will help you travel the interesting world of dying light with ease. As the developers have focused the architecture of the world in such a way that jumping and gliding through the areas is the easiest way to get by.
