Devel­op­er Tech­land opened Xbox’s Gamescom 2021 pre­sen­ta­tion with a Dying Light 2: Stay Human trail­er, which showed the new com­bat and tra­ver­sal the stu­dio added to the open-world zom­bie title.

The lat­est game­play trail­er is around three min­utes long, and we got to see a brief view at how mas­sive the sequel might actu­al be. The pro­tag­o­nist Aiden Cald­well can be seen using a braid­ed grap­pling hook to haul him­self into the sham­bles of a build­ing. This real­ly shows how impor­tant tra­ver­sal could poten­tial­ly be in Dying Light 2.

The park­our mechan­ics were also seen, with Aiden run­ning, jump­ing, and climb­ing through a zom­bie infest­ed city. There was even a scene where he jumps off a large ledge and deploys a paraglid­er. You can check out the full trail­er below.

Tech­land did speak about Dying Light 2: Stay Human before and after the trail­er was aired. The stu­dio stat­ed the sequel con­tains twice as many park­our moves as the orig­i­nal Dying Light. Addi­tion­al­ly, build­ings are high­er and com­bat moves have been altered to make them more flu­id between fight­ing and traversal.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human is expect­ed to launch Decem­ber 7th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. You can check out our pre­order guide if you want to pick up a copy.
