Dying Light 2 will be coming in spring 2020, bringing with it a variety of improvements over the original. Besides simply having smoother gameplay and better visuals, Dying Light 2's campaign will focus a lot more on choices and consequences. As a result of this shift, the Dying Light 2 campaign will be a fair bit shorter than the original's, though replayability will be significantly higher as many of your choices will result is the campaign going off in an entirely different direction.

If you're wondering just how all of this translates into gameplay, allow me to share with you the recently posted and developer-guided gameplay demo. It doesn't exactly go into as much detail as I would like, but it's still a pretty darn interesting preview to check out. Have a gander:

Needless to say, Dying Light 2 is already looking pretty quite remarkable. The movement mechanics feel like a direct improvement from Dying Light, so even if the story ends up being a cliched mess, I'm pretty sure I'll still have a lot of fun with Dying Light 2 just jumping from rooftop to rooftop. That said, I can only hope Dying Light 2's grappling hook or any other item will not trivialize the zombies as much as it did in the original, since that really killed the overall atmosphere for me.

Whether that will be the case or not, I'm afraid we'll only really figure out once Dying Light 2 fully releases. Until then, you can learn more about it over at the official website.
