In the final Dying 2 Know livestream before the release of Dying Light 2, Techland has showcased co-op gameplay and a brief console comparison.
After first being announced at E3 in 2018, Dying Light 2 has had a long and sordid history with development reportedly being “a total mess.” Finally, there’s light at the end of the tunnel for Techland, as the release is finally only a few short weeks away.
To celebrate this imminent release of what used to be Steam’s most wishlisted game, Techland has shown off a sneak peek at the four-player co-op that you’ll be able to enjoy in the game from start to finish with your gaggle of zombie-slaying friends.
Unfortunately, it’s a very brief sneak peek for now, with only thirty seconds of gameplay to admire, but Techland did at least let us know that you and your co-op cohort will be able to vote on story moments throughout the campaign and keep their items and progression when they leave the session.
During the final Dying 2 Know livestream, Techland also showcased another brief look at Dying Light 2 running on a variety of consoles, showing how it will look on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series X.
While each edition of Dying Light 2 manages to look generally pretty good for a zombie apocalypse, it’s hard to tell just how much the current-gen editions of the game suffer in detail thanks to Techland sneakily using a shrunken window for the gameplay.
Dying Light 2 is currently planned to launch on February 4th 2022 for Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
