Highly anticipated game at the start of the year, Dying Light 2: Stay Human arrives on February 04 on PC and consoles. It is the sequel to the Dying Light episode, which is very popular among survival games. Released in 2015, Techland’s game refreshes the genre formula by introducing parkour. The sporting discipline, which consists of overcoming urban obstacles using jumps or rolls, lends itself well and makes the game of survival more dynamic than these colleagues. An idea that Techland wants to take up in its next opus, while making the game denser with management of areas, resources and choices impacting the rest of the adventure.
If the first episode was already greedy when it was released, its sequel does not seem to escape the rule. On the occasion of Consumer Electronic Show, Nvidia shared a trailer for Dying Light 2 all in 4K … but also with ray-tracing. A feature increasingly requested by AAAs, this technology embedded in certain graphics cards makes it possible to simulate the physical behavior of light in real time. Roughly speaking, it makes reflections, shadow effects or evolving volume possible. An impressive technology, which will be on the program of Dying Light 2 and which will, perhaps, allow you to immerse yourself even more easily in a title that puts survival and the day-night cycle at the heart of its gameplay.
For the more curious who want to try the experience, it is worth remembering that Dying Light 2: Stay Human is expected on February 04 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PS4, PS5 and on Switch with a cloud version. In addition, other games have been announced compatible with Nvidia’s RTX such as The Day Before. Escape from Tarkov will benefit from DLSS.
