The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world, plunged into a modern dark age. During the day, bandits, factions and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps - or someone to take them from, by violence if necessary. At night the infected roam free, evacuating their dark hideouts to prey on the living. You are Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor. Your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.

    YOUR CHOICES, YOUR WORLD
    You must make tough decisions and hard sacrifices as you decide the fate of a society on the brink of collapse. The effect of the choices you make will have a huge impact on entire regions of the city, uncovering new land masses and areas to explore. Play the entire campaign in up to four-player co-op. Host your own games or join other players' and see how their choices have played out differently to your own.

    EXCEPTIONAL AGILITY AND BRUTAL COMBAT
    On your journey from humble beginnings to a person of great power, you have unprecedented freedom of movement across the city, seamlessly integrated with brutal first person combat.

    A MODERN DARK AGE
    In a desperate city, where resources and power are scarce, unstable, and trust in ruling bodies is all but eroded; humankind has reverted to a dark age. Civilization is gone but the relics are still there. This is a violent, primal & unforgiving world - and so are its inhabitants.

    THE INFECTION HAS EVOLVED
    The infection has evolved and become more sensitive to UV light. Society exists in the relative safety of sunlight, while the infected hide in the shadows of buildings. At night the infected roam the streets freely searching for prey, presenting opportunities for you to explore areas of the city inaccessible by day.

    Developer Techland accumulates all they’ve learned from their action-horror catalog, delivering solidly fun zombie-slaying in this sequel. Its long-winded story may miss the mark in keeping you captivated, but the fun to be had more than makes up for that. And the PS4 version is a great option to play, running at very stable performances and maintaining very acceptable visual fidelity.

    Dying Light 2 is a delightfully fast paced game, which has a few persistent issues bogging it down. Most issues have already started getting fixed, such as the audio bugs and auto save issues, but enemies being frozen in place and some quests having NPCs make odd choices still drags it down a bit. Still, even on the older console the game runs pretty great and load times are surprisingly not noticeable. The main story ramps up well with characters that matter and moments that vary from harrowing escapes to fun fights. Every moment of parkour is a treat, and combat does just well enough to stay out of the way, with a day/night cycle that varies, meaning there’s always something new to do. Here’s hoping those issues continue to get ironed out and leave the game to be what it’s best at, a harrowing fast-paced survival RPG with plenty to explore and loot.

    This world is so beautifully drawn that you can get the impression you are in the middle of the movie,
    A great story, good efficiency. If I could do parkour in real life I'm pretty sure it would be as much fun as in the game. All those small details that make you feel this is so real!
    But if I would have to choose what made me love this game that would be two things :
    1) choices and consequences - just like in real life
    2) game is full of ee and finding them is as much fun as killing zombies :)

    PS. You macaroni are you really rating good game for 0 only because of Italian dubbing???? Pathetic

Somehow Techland managed to downgrade the game, by releasing a product thats obviously unfinished, with bugs and glitches making the game unplayable, either its all characters and textures becoming grey, the infamous audio bug, dialogue skipping itself, I literally didn't experience one normal cutscene in the game, Let alone the game breaking bugs that eould literally have you restart the game. The story is so weak, badly written and the whole post apocalyptic setting feels extremely boring and unneeded, just because the last of us did it dont mean you have to as well. I replayed DL1 over 4 times over how much i loved it. But this here feels like a chore to finish only once. I honestly hope they fix it but i don't think its fixable and i sure hope DL2 doesn't kill the Dying Light IP because i wanna see Techland do better Expand

Leaving the bugs aside for a moment, I am a completionist. I try to get most of the abilities and items as I get into the game, but I feel like the story is forcing me to leave huge amounts of content behind. I had barely scratched the surface of the facilities, windmills, and side quests and nighttime activities in Old Villedor, before I started a story quest and was forced into the Central Loop. There are no metro stations unlocked on my map for Old Viledor, so I cannot get back. "How do I go back?" is just one of the questions the game never answers, in addition to, How do I get to the military drops? Ive seen at least 2 where there is no way to get to the top of the building for the drop. I assume it is locked into a story quest, but no where does it say anything about that. You just waste your time running around a building looking for a way up, and there is none. There are a LOT of buildings like that. What is the use of an open world that I can't get to, and the game does not tell you it's locked?

    I keep getting the message inventory full, but under my inventory it does not display what I have too many items of, if there is a limit for each type of item, or if it's a global limit, what IS that limit? The settlement/facility/windmill thing is a complete mystery. WTF? How are they different, and why are they different? it seems windmills unlock items on the map, but maybe facilities do, too. It's just a jumbled mess. A lot of the time I feel overpowered compared to enemies, yet I am lacking most of the items needed to do the side quests. Im probably going to finish this stupid story mode I can't get into because im fruitlessly chasing upgrades that cannot be accomplished, with tons of content that I havent even touched. I've played 20 hours or so and feel like I wasted at least half of it trying to do things i am apparently forbidden to do in an "open world" game. The list of things to track in this game is endless, and the crafting is stupid. I need UV flashlights. Do I have what I need? Who the F knows?. infected parts (common, uncommon, rare, military tech, nightrunner hideouts , regular hideouts, facilities, checkpoints, windmills, metro stations, and many, MANY more. Make TWO different types at most, then let us fast travel to half of them. It is just a confused and jumbled mess.
