Although the wait felt inevitable, Techland’s Dying Light 2 officially arrived earlier this winter. And much like its 2015 predecessor, there is a coalition of users welcoming to the new setting and gameplay decisions made when infused with a zombie epidemic. From our review for the game, it reads “Dying Light 2 great movement and deep story focus makes it a sequel worth losing a few nights of sleep over.”
