There’s another chunky drop of Dying Light 2 gameplay footage out in the wild today, which shows off a few of the features we’ve heard about in the upcoming zombie game. Developer Techland showcased the video today on its Twitch channel, and the clip provides a nice mix of combat, exploration, and character interaction – as well as some new locations.
The clip shows a quest called A Place Called Home, and it begins atop a nondescript building near the heart of the City, with a discussion between player character Aiden and Lawan, played by Rosario Dawson. Lawan wants Aiden to help restore power to an electrical substation nearby, and gives Aiden a paraglider to help him navigate high above the City’s zombie-infested alleyways.
At the substation, Aiden runs into some of the Peace Keepers, one of the factions vying for control of the City. There’s some light puzzle solving involved inside to get the power back up and running, and once it’s ready, Aiden has to decide whether to give control of the station over to Lawan’s group of survivors, or to the Peace Keepers. Both sides offer some benefit in return for control: the Peace Keepers, for example, will install explosive car traps around the city in exchange for the keys to the relay.
