Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been delayed and will no longer launch on December 7th. The game will now be landing on digital and physical stores on February 4th, 2022. This the second time the release date has moved, in January 2020 Techland announced that the game would be delayed out of its early 2020 window to allow additional development time,
“Dying Light 2 Stay Human is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it,” said Pawel Marchewka, CEO of Techland
The developer recently revealed a new series of ‘urban legends’ which are available as audio stories. These will fill out the back story of Dying Light 2 Stay Human and the first is available now.
Here’s more about the story.
“Rosemary” is an urban legend from the world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human, created especially for people who like scary stories told by the bonfire at night. The “Rosemary” is the first in a series of short audiobooks about events so amazing that it’s hard to believe they might have happened. There are many such stories in the post-apocalyptic world of Dying Light 2, and the difficulties of surviving in a city full of dangers are an endless source of inspiration.
By sharing them with each other during meetings, citizens of The City can get closer to each other, allow a little respite and rebuild fragile social bounds. They also teach how to live and avoid trouble… and sometimes they just serve to drown out the sounds of the night, when from a distance players can hear monsters coming out of their lairs, and every rustle and step behind the wall portends danger.
Techland invites you to the fire, together with the residents of The City. Players will be able to feel like one of them – huddled at night by the light of a UV lamp, listening to another of the scary stories.
More ‘urban legends’ will be available in the future and will be in other formats, not just audio stories.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human launches February 4th, 2022. on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. There’s a new promotional site that will let you discover what type of zombie you would become, and also reveals more about these new monsters.
