The well of video game news seems to be overflowing as Techland joins the list of reveals this Thursday.
The developers announced on its Twitter page we will be receiving Dying Light 2 news on its Twitch channel at 9 p.m. CEST. That translates to 2 p.m. CST in the U.S. The tweet features a 15 second video with little other information to go off of.
Techland didn’t reveal what we will see on the stream and that has speculation running wild. The stream could likely feature a new trailer, new gameplay footage, or even a new release date/window. No matter what it is, fans cannot wait to see it.
Dying Light 2’s History
The highly anticipated sequel saw a number of delays since its announcement at E3 2018. We finally saw an extended look at gameplay in August 2019. Originally set for a January 2020 release, the game then got pushed to 2021. The team put out a short video in March that featured devs reading angry tweets and revealed a short glimpse of the game. The video asked fans to wait “a little longer” for news surrounding the game.
Dying Light 2 is said to feature a narrative with player decisions impacting how it plays out as well as a map significantly larger than the original game. The prequel released in January 2015 receiving critical reception. As of the last report given in 2018, the title sold more than 13 million copies. It received several updates and re-releasing over the years including an anniversary edition that featured every expansion and DLC released to date.
The sequel faces a high bar from fans and Thursday’s reveal could help or hurt those expectations. It won’t be the only news coming Thursday. Dying Light 2 is currently set to release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. You can find out more info by visiting the game’s official website.
