Dying Light 2 follows the story of Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor present 15 years since the virus outbreak wiped out humanity. Techland was trying out new mechanics and features, as your decisions impact the world around you. The studio wants to give players unparalleled freedom of movement to traverse its world.
The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world, plunged into a modern dark age. During the day, bandits, factions and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps - or someone to take them from, by violence if necessary. At night the infected roam free, evacuating their dark hideouts to prey on the living.
You are Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor. Your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.
The fate of the city is in your hands.
