Dying Light 2: Stay Human is a survival horror role-playing game. It was developed by Techland and is the second (and latest) game in the Dying Light series.

In this article, we discuss some of the game’s key features, as well as some additional Dying Light 2 news.

Key features

Dying Light 2 plot

After the virus escaped from the city of Harran in the first installment of the series, the military dropped chemicals to destroy it - unfortunately, this resulted in contaminating the water, the soils, and many people, transforming them into blood-thirsty, half-alive monsters. In consequence, a new civilization was created, with survivors living on rooftops and leaving the monsters in the streets. People fight over resources and laws are broken. In this installment, players meet Aiden Caldwell after the chemical event who will go down and face the infected in a search for his long-lost sister Mia. Together with other children, they were subjects of bizarre medical research until the age of 5 when Aiden got rescued by soldiers. However, Mia didn’t get that lucky. The main protagonist will meet a group called The Nightrunners who could help him - or will they?

Dying Light 2 gameplay

Dying Light 2 is a survival horror role-playing game that is set in an open-world. Because of the medical experiments, the protagonist has amazing parkour skills that make navigating through the city easier. The player can use different fractions of survivors in order to reach their goal, however, non-playable characters (NPCs) have complex personalities and Aiden’s decisions are crucial. Depending on whether he chooses to help them or attack NPCs, the city will be reshaped and the course of the narrative will change. As the title suggests, light is an important feature because hoards of monsters start roaming at night - they are sensitive to the sun, but also to light in general. This means that monsters nests are left rather unprotected when the sun comes down. This pushes players to exploit the game’s verticality.
