Dying Light 2 takes place over twenty years after the first game and after humanity lost against the virus. In the sequel, players are in The City, which is one of the last large human settlements and torn apart by internal strife. Civilization has regressed back to the dark ages, but there's still hope as you arrive and start exploring The City.
Like the first game there's co-op, a vast open world to explore, parkour, brutal combat, and a day and night cycle that has the monsters hiding from the daylight and coming out to play at night. It's up to you to decide how The City and its inhabitants fare, and if you decide to stay human.
You are a wanderer with the power to change the fate of The City. But your exceptional abilities come at a price. Haunted by memories you cannot decipher, you set out to learn the truth… and find yourself in a combat zone. Hone your skills, as to defeat your enemies and make allies, you’ll need both fists and wits. Unravel the dark secrets behind the wielders of power, choose sides and decide your destiny. But wherever your actions take you, there's one thing you can never forget—stay human.
