Dying Light 2 confirms December release date with new gameplay trailer

By Heidi Nicholas,
The new trailer for Dying Light 2 gives us over seven minutes of gameplay footage and confirms a release date of December 7th.


We see Aiden Caldwell, "an outsider trying to unravel a tangled mystery from his past," which leads him to the city and "the last bastion of mankind in the world." The city is split between a number of factions like the powerful Peacekeepers and the Renegades, as well as the lone bandits and outlaws — not to mention the infected and mutated creatures that come out in force at night. You can make use of the city's verticality, relying on Aiden's parkour skills to stay on the roofs, or choose a more aggressive approach, taking the fight to the enemy. Techland adds that "your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis."

Along with the gameplay trailer, we also got a look at the Collector's Edition of the game, and info on preorder bonuses. No matter which version you preorder, you'll get the Reload pack with an outfit skin, a weapon skin, and a paraglider skin. The Deluxe Edition also comes with the Legendary skin pack, weapon charms, wallpapers, a digital art book, soundtrack, and comic, as well as the first story DLC. The Ultimate Edition brings all that as well as the second story DLC and some crafting items and a night XP boost, while the Collector's Edition also has a UV Flashlight, an artbook, UV stickers, a thank-you letter, a map, a steelbook case, the Collector's Edition box, and a 10" statuette.

Dying Light 2 launches on December 7th.
