Dying Light 2 Stay Human release is imminent and fans of the parkour horror shooter can't wait to finally jump into the game and start exploring The City.

The sequel to 2015's Dying Light has the potential to become one of the best games of 2022, and fans are cautiously having huge expectations from it.

Dying Light 2 builds upon the beloved mechanics from the original game, such as the signature parkour moves, day and night cycle, and exploration. On top of that, it will also add much more depth and narrative layers with several factions and a huge open world with its own secrets and distinct areas to uncover.

Developers promise an absolute behemoth of a game in terms of scale and time needed to experience everything it has to offer. Apparently, if you want to finish all side missions, learn all the different endings, go through all dialogue options and explore every corner of The City, you will need to put in over 500 hours of playtime.

There's definitely a lot to be done in this game, and that's why it is best to be ready before the launch. In order to start playing Dying Light 2  immediately when it launches, you will need to pre-load the game, and here's everything you need to know about that.
