[Update #2]: Dying Light 2 studio Techland is now working on a new and massive, fantasy themed open world RPG.

[Update]: My review for Dying Light 2 is now up, and I'm happy to say that it's a somewhat misguided yet still highly entertaining bandit-kicking simulator!

As a part of a recent announcement, the Dying Light 2 team revealed that they are committing to at least five years of post-launch support! With the vast majority of studios that would be a ridiculously overambitious claim, but considering that the original Dying Light is currently getting ready for a brand new update, I'm fully inclined to believe Techland here.

If you're wondering what exactly these post-launch updates will even contain, I'm happy to say that Techland has now also released a rough roadmap! Here's a quick rundown of what you can expect to see and when it will arrive:

February - Seemingly cosmetic update inspired by the in-game factions
March - The first set of challenges
April - A series of events starring mutated infected
May - The second set of challenges
June - The first paid story DLC
Later down the line - Second paid story DLC, new weapons, new enemies, new events, new stories, and "much more!"

While I'm expecting the first two updates to be mostly fluff as the team will likely still be working on ironing out any post-launch bugs or balance issues, the April update does have me quite excited. Techland has already shown they're not afraid to experiment with new gameplay ideas and concepts with the original Dying Light, so I'm really stoked to see just what kind of nonsense they'll cook up for these events!

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once we know more. Until then, you can read up on Dying Light 2, as well as follow its upcoming launch, over at the official website.
