Summer. A time to unwind… but not in The City. Summer of Horrors will see a collection of updates, additions, events, and crossovers come to Dying Light 2 Stay Human from now until September, and it all starts off with the Good Night, Good Luck update. The newest update promises darker nights and updated parkour movement to make the ultimate zombie game even better! Believe us, you’ll be #dying2survive.
“At Summer Game Fest, we said that this was going to be an events season like our players have never seen before,” states Tymon Smektała, Dying Light Franchise Director. “The Good Night, Good Luck update is just the start of what’s to come, with the improvements we’ve made to the night experience to make it more daunting, dangerous and deadly, as well as giving Pilgrims more control with the addition of Physical Parkour. There’s plenty more on the way with Summer of Horrors, and trust us, you won’t want to miss it!”
We’re always listening to feedback from our community and thinking about what we can do to make our game even more enjoyable for them. According to the feedback and data we’ve attained, it was clear that our players wanted a more advanced form of the parkour that was already in the game and to add more terror with roaming Volatiles, the apex predator of our universe. So, that’s what we’ve done.
The latest update will offer scarier nights (similar to what we had in the original Dying Light) and a greater sense of freedom when freerunning around Villedor. So get ready to never feel safe again as soon as the sun sets, as well as more liberated when running and leaping from rooftop to rooftop!
Fear the Night
Unlike your traditional summer nights, darkness has further enveloped Villedor once the sun sets. Is that a friend or a foe you barely can see in the night? Or maybe it’s an inanimate object and your mind is playing tricks on you? The dangers that lurk in the dark are now more hidden, leading to a greater sense of dread. And to further ramp up the tension, Volatiles will now roam the streets looking for their next prey. We guess you could just sit in a safe zone all night, but where’s the fun in that?
Run or Die!
We want you to feel that rush and the sense of freedom a freerunner has as they run across rooftops or take a leap of faith to a platform down below. To do that, we’ve added Physical Parkour, which will allow you to feel the flow, the control in the air and the speed you’re traveling at even more. If you hear a shriek or footsteps in the night, you’ll be able to use all the moves in your parkour arsenal to escape towards the light. You can choose between Physical Parkour (more realistic and responsive) and Assisted Parkour (easier control of character) in Settings.
Good Night, Good Luck Stream
As with all updates, we like to show off what’s being added to the community and exude our passion for the additions through the screen. So come join us on June 29 at 8PM CEST on the official Dying Light Twitch channel. We’ll break down what you can expect from the upcoming update, as well as maybe details a few tips and tricks that might help you in your quest for survival!
Dying Light 2 Stay Human is available for purchase on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human
It’s been 20 years since the events of the original game. The virus won, and humanity is slowly dying. You play as Aiden Caldwell, a wandering Pilgrim who delivers goods, brings news, and connects the few remaining survivor settlements in barren lands devastated by the zombie virus. However, your true goal is to find your little sister Mia, who you left behind as a kid to escape Dr. Waltz’s torturous experiments. Haunted by the past, you eventually make the decision to confront it when you learn that Mia may still be alive in Villedor — the last city standing on Earth.
You quickly find yourself in a settlement torn by conflict. You’ll need to engage in creative and gory combat, so hone your skills to defeat hordes of zombies and make allies. Roam the city, free run across Villedor’s buildings and rooftops in search of loot in remote areas, and be wary of the night. With every sunset, monsters take control of the streets.
A WORLD AFTER THE APOCALYPSE
Fifteen years ago, humanity was devastated by the Fall — a catastrophic event that would change the world forever. With the Harran virus spreading around the globe, people quickly found out that all hope for tomorrow is lost. By 2036, only a few settlements remain, and humanity is slowly dying, making way for the new species out there — a horde of relentless zombies.
DAY’S FOR THE LIVING, NIGHT’S FOR THE DEAD
Welcome to Villedor, one of the last bastions of humanity. During the day, survivors still try to have a life here and find a false sense of normalcy. Relationships are formed, dreams are dreamed, and life carries on. On the surface, everything seems… fine. Until sunset, that is. With the last ray of light dying out, other, more dreadful, dwellers of The City crawl out of their gloomy interiors, taking over the streets. If you are not vigilant and stay out too long in the dark, you may never return.
YOU HAVE TO MOVE TO SURVIVE
Not all fights can be won. Sometimes it’s best to run and, thankfully, you have the skills for it. Parkour lets you escape when odds are not in your favor. Jump from rooftop to rooftop, swing across the cityscape, ride ziplines, and much more. Whatever you do, experience a unique sense of freedom as you free run across Villedor’s buildings and rooftops in search of loot or while running away from the dangers of the night.
GET BRUTAL AND BE CREATIVE ABOUT IT
In a world as dangerous as this one, only the strongest survive. Whether you prefer to smash, slice or dismember those who stand in your way, you have to be creative about it to make it through. And who says you need weapons? Utilize the entirety of your parkour moveset to get the jump on your enemies. Learn the ways of combat and parkour to feel the crunch of skulls and slices of flesh as you swing weapons or use your moves to fend off any forms of danger. And let’s not forget that Villedor has weapons that put the most advanced post-apocalyptic armories to shame.
FOUR PILGRIMS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
Surviving in Villedor is easier with friends. Team up with up to 3 other players and increase your chances out there. Unravel the story together, take on Pilgrim Outpost challenges, or simply wreak havoc on the city streets.
