Dying Light 2 shows console comparison video and co-op gameplay • Eurogamer.net

In last livestream before launch.

It’s been a long and bumpy ride for Dying Light 2, but just under four years after its first release, Techland’s parkour-infused zombie sequel is now just a few weeks away from release – and to celebrate the occasion, the developer has co-op shown gameplay and a short console comparison video as part of its latest Dying Light 2 pre-launch livestream series.

While most of the show was filmed with slightly strained memories of past stuff as the launch approached (i.e. the previous five livestream episodes), Techland managed to squeeze a remarkably bit of new gameplay into the form of a co-op sneak peek.

Co-op will allow up to four players to work through the game together from start to finish, and they share undead slaughter tasks and storyline. Friends can vote on important story decisions every time narrative choices are presented as part of a co-op play-through – though the host will always have the last word on how things go – and players will be able to take all the rewards things and character. progress made back to their own game when a session ends.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human – Episode 6.

You can get a short 30-second taste of Dying Light 2’s four-minute collaboration in the video above. And while you’re at it, you might as well skip to six minutes, where you’ll find an equally fast console gameplay comparison across PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One X and Xbox Series X.

Dying Light 2 looks good enough on the previous gen consoles in my eyes, but – given the helplessly shrunken gameplay videos Techland used in its showcase and my limited expertise in these matters – you will almost certainly want to wait on Digital Foundry’s final verdict.

Dying Light 2 – Official gameplay trailer.

And that’s pretty much all that Techland’s sixth and final livestream had to offer, besides a new trailer (above) that consolidates various gameplay features we’ve seen before.

Fortunately, Eurogamer’s Martin Robinson was quite impressed with the opening hours of Dying Light 2 at the end of last year, despite his rather tumultuous development – which has experienced several delays, along with high-profile staff layoffs and several reports of poor management at Techland. We finally know how the complete experience will perform – whether it’s 500 hours long or otherwise – when it launches for Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Switch on February 4th.
