As I sat down to play Dying Light 2 a few weeks ago, I wasnt quite sure what I was in for. A game that is releasing seven years after the original, and one that has been marred by delays, I could have been in for a meaty, exciting sequel to Dying Light or a messy game with no real focus.

Thankfully, after around four hours with the game, I can confidently say that Dying Light 2 is shaping up to be an exciting sequel that takes the series in a new, fascinating direction with its focus on narrative and characters. While its predecessor felt like a very good by-the-numbers open-world zombie action game, Dying Light 2 is really a character-focused RPG, following in the footsteps of The Witcher and Fallout.
