Maybe with announcement they will do a surprise update to 4k/60 on the OG. I'm digging the ms 60 fps but oof the anti aliasing and wonky 1080p conversion.

Dammit! I'm lagging behind the stream.
Now the rest of the world will see Dying Light 2 four seconds before I do!

doesnt look that much next gen as visuals go but overall feel looks to be very good , as 1st game gameplay is just superb.

It's still for Xbox One/PS4.
And I think they said previously that The City is the same size as the Slums and Old Town combined from DL1.

I guess current gen arrived and left a Dying Light behind. The graphics, gameplay mechanics and story all scream last gen imo. AAA last gen that is, but still outdated. I feel like this will be overshadowed by true current gen games this fall.

Doesn’t look like a downgrade from 2019 which is already a positive. Winder how much the conbat has evolved for the sequel. They seem to be ready to drop some extended ganeplay footage soon

Not evolved, I'm guessing. More of a lateral move. They said there were no guns in the game. So it's going to be all improvised blade/blunt weapons and physical melee combat. That's what they said earlier, anyway. But I'm certain I saw one pistol in that trailer just now.

December 7th release date. Coincides with the time of the year where it gets dark at like 4 pm.

I don't think the presentation built much hype tbh, but that's fine, I think this is one of those cases where you really need to get your hands on the game and feel how it plays to get a proper bearing on it. I look forward to trying it out even though I didn't end up playing the first one for too long. Personally I really like the build a base/community aspect for these kind of zombie games, so I'm more of a SoDecay person. This looks different from the first one and more open-worldish so that's why I'd give it a shot.

Looks good.

I guess I'll try to get into Dying Light 1 again, I'm 8 hours in and somehow stopped playing years ago, I can't remember why.

As always, I really hope this turns out well. The first was a super underrated gem.

the lore seems well thought and flesh out ...lot of ambitious ideas everywhere for gameplay , narration on a package that feel coherent presenting it.
the cyberpunk trauma is not forgotten (and this kind of communication doesn't help)
we'll see what this turn out to be when in our hands but if the game deliver all its promises it will be something really special
