Techland guarantees that the latest generation versions will be of high quality
After its tortuous development, Dying Light 2 It seems he is starting to see the light, and the latest information regarding the game of Techland they are starting to be very positive. The title of Parkour and Zombie Survival premiered at E3 2018, and the videos shown were very promising.
But the development began to lengthen, was delayed, and even changed hands. However, Techland It seems he has straightened his course, and it could even be launched this year. All of this, maintenance his departure in the latest generation console versions, Xbox One and PS4.
In interview For the WCCFTech portal, Tomasz Szalkowski, rendering director, is ready to ensure that versions of Dying Light 2’s Xbox One and PS4 will be quality. The “main” consoles have long been our priority. We do our best to ensure that the quality of the game on PS4 or XBO is at the highest level
Tomasz Szalkowski I’m also talking about the new generation versions, making sure that we can choose between different display options. As a result, we will have an option with laser tracing, other than prioritize the framerate and one last to 4k: “We plan to let you choose: quality (including ray tracing), performance (60+ FPS) and 4K”.
From this interview, we can also grab some new features of the playable:
–Random encounters or events: according to Tymon Smektała, Chief Game Designer, the game will feature random events. He tells us it was a decision they made recently and it added a lot of variety to the action.
–There will be choices and consequences: in order to Tymon Smektała This is one of the cornerstones of the project. To this he adds: Storytelling-based choices are just one way players can express their agency. Another is the city alignment system, which is the main system that allows players to make changes in the city. “
–Interesting characters with common missions: Throughout our adventure, we meet fascinating characters, who, according to Tymon, will accompany us on various missions. We will not be able to recruit them, but they will accompany us in our courses in different ways.
–Duration: Diying Light 2 will last us around 20 hours if we go to the main story. However, and in Tymon’s words: “To see it all you would have to spend 2-3 times more time than that.” Our opening area alone can last over 7-8 hours if you want to explore every corner ”.
–An open world instead: Its developers mark the open world of Dying Light 2 as vertical and immersive, due to its first-person perspective, but according to Tymon, one of its most important aspects will be the changes introduced to it with our decisions. “Introducing an additional element: the possibility of changing the open world, the play space, through your choices. By making different decisions, you introduce different game mechanics into the game, for example, explosive car traps or other crazy gadgets. ”
–A huge map full of possibilities: Łukasz Burdka, Senior Technology Programmer, adds some interesting data regarding the Dying Light 2 card. One of them is that it will be about four times the size of the first game: “The estimate that the map in Dying Light 2 is four times the size of the original game is the most accurate estimate we can provide. The Dying Light 2 map is much more vertical and offers a lot more opportunities for exploration. “ According to this programmer, working tools such as City builder allow them to work quickly on the development of the map. The limits lie in the sheer difficulty of filling the map expansion with events, stories and challenges, and making it feel alive.
