Techland Says Dying Light 2 Co-Op Will Have a Lot of Replay Value


Techland thinks Dying Light 2: Stay Human‘s choice and consequence system, and the way it works in co-op play, will encourage players to invest hundreds and thousands of hours into the game.

Speaking to MP1st, Lead Game Designer Tymon Smektala said that the way Dying Light 2‘s co-op supports its choice and consequence system will give players reason to see how different decisions play out and change the course of the game. When it comes to decision-making, only the host of the co-op session ultimately has the ability to choose what path they want to take. So if players want to try a different route with their friends and create their own version of the story, they can host a session and approach the campaign in a different way.

Smektala bet $1,000 that this will result in players spending a significant numbers of hours playing.

If you have a game about choices, someone has to make that choice, someone has to make that decision. So it’s at all times the host of the session. Let’s think about it’s your session and also you invite me to play with you and I play with you and we come to a level the place there may be a determination to be made. So what I can do – of course moreover screaming at you on the headset – is that we now have some options that permit me to form of vote or recommend to you what I might select. You make the choice, all of us get to see that end result and that call stays in your save game and you’ll full the game in your individual canon model of the expertise.

But then the subsequent weekend I’ll invite you to play in my game and now I get to make the choice, and now you get to see all of the model of the story, all of the choices, all the opposite choices we will make. For me the optimum approach to play the game is first to play by your self or with your folks, however because the host, and get your model of Dying Light 2: Stay Human, after which hop on-line and begin becoming a member of different individuals and begin experiencing all of the opposite variations the game has to supply. My private guess on that is that I’ll guess $1000 that this will likely be appreciated by the players and provides them the that means to play the game for tons of, and 1000’s of hours.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human will launch on February 4, 2022.
