During a special livestream event developer Techland Games revealed new details around the hotly anticipated Dying Light 2 Stay Human. The last gameplay demo we saw was during E3 2019, then the game went quiet with COVID-related delays. At the time, the demo showed players how in-game decisions changed the story and environment. Fast forward to 2021 and player decisions still have a big impact on the story and settings in this survival horror action experience.

The modern dark ages
As Aiden Caldwell, an infected human survivor, you become a powerful weapon and ally to survivors. The human race has been pushed to the brink, civilization has crumbled falling back into the dark ages.
The architecture you’ll experience is a mix of modern structures, medieval-style dwellings and farmland. This diverse environment looks to provide new verticality as you explore and try to survive.
You’ll be fighting against the infected horde in an area called “The City” one of the last strongholds for humankind. Players need to stay in the light and traverse rooftops to keep safe. In the dark the infected lurk, waiting for you to make one wrong move. Venturing out at night is risky but comes with the rewards of resources and more powerful weapons. As you move around The City you’ll discover different paths, multiple levels and hidden locations.
Forge your own fate
As you continue to explore the decaying metropolis, three human factions battle each other for control. You hang in the balance, making choices that will reshape the narrative and impact the larger community. It’s up to you to support settlements scattered throughout out a ravaged landscape. This will come with many tough decisions like funnelling water or electricity to one faction over another. These choices come with benefits and consequences depending on how you align yourself. As you pledge your allegiance to various factions exclusive perks and weapons unlock. You’ll be locked into “no win” decisions that will have a big impact on how the ending of the game plays out.
