The ambitious Dying Light 2 is on its way home: After a long period of radio silence, the open-world action game is set to debut December 7th — for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. With the release announcement, the developers broke their silence and have been providing fans with new information and impressions about the game ever since. Techland has now published another gameplay video in which you get to know another side of the open world zombie game: in less than 5 minutes, you can see how protagonist Aiden Caldwell and his companion have to sneak through a pitch-black zombie nest in an abandoned GRE hospital.
Aiden himself is infected with the zombie virus and hopes to find a so-called vital sign in the clinic, a bracelet that will show him the degree of his infection. If Aiden reaches the red zone, he desperately needs to refuel with UV to prevent himself from turning into undead. In the course of the video, not only are four new (and disgusting) types of enemies introduced, but you also finally see how Aiden has to traverse enemy crowds out in the open in a nerve-wracking escape sequence.
The gameplay video was presented as part of Techland’s “Dying 2 Know” information show. If you want to watch the second episode in its entirety, you can find the video here:
