The arrival of 2022 brings us to less than a month before the release of Techland’s Dying Light 2 Stay Human.
And the Polish developer has finally spoiled us with a look into the two skill trees for player character Aiden Caldwell.
Aiden’s skills are broken down into parkour and combat branches.
Those who have braved Dying Light or currently are doing so will know that finding a balance of these skills is critical to success.
What’s different this time around is that Dying Light 2 Stay Human will feature a dynamic skill progression system. Performing actions like climbing, jumping, or vaulting will be rewarded by progressing a parkour-centric experience bar. You’ll be able to chain actions and perform more advanced actions for more experience points towards skill tree building.
Likewise, to earn combat-centric experience points, players should take the fight straight to enemies and perform combination attacks to net even more experience points. basically, complete those side quests and random encounters because you’re going to need the right skills to fight the frights of The City.
For those looking to just go with the flow, completing quests can quickly fill both experience bars, so there shouldn’t be any fear that you’re in for a “travel the whole map to progress” slog. However, for survival, you’re probably going to want to pick up skills along the way to keep up.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human is climbing into a very packed games season on February 4, 2022.
