February 4, 2022 is getting closer and closer, and now’s the best time to hop into The City and learn a little bit more about the large open world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human. Villedor’s full of secrets, memories, and complex characters, and today, we’re going to take a closer look at where to find some of them, and how to bring The City back to life.
Before the apocalypse happened, Villedor had been a beautiful, modern place. These days are gone, but you’ll still find elements bringing back its former glory. A lot of them, like subway stations, TV towers, or railway tracks, are no longer working in the way we know. Instead, people adapted these places to their current needs, turning them into bases or escape routes. So when you look at The City’s infrastructure with just a little bit of creativity, you might see how this new reality has changed the meaning of the places around you, replacing their old functions with new ones.
And it’s not just buildings that people adapt. To regain this feeling of normality, they are also trying to recreate the lifestyle they used to know. Look around you, and you’ll find a person who’s attempting to bring dating apps back without any technology, an opera singer trying to find herself in all the rubble, and many more unique people. And if you dig even deeper… you may discover original pieces that will show you what Villedor used to be like. There are old papers, records, books, and personal letters scattered around The City, waiting for you to tell you its emotional story.
But that’s the past, and though it’s always good to know it, your main focus should be the future. During your journey, you’ll be able to restore some of Villedor’s old lustre; and your choices will not only determine its landscape, but also functionality. If you repair the old electrical substations around The City, you’ll find it easier to navigate—thanks to the lights in the shops and air vents—and to fight, as the electric traps will work again. Then, you can hand the area over to a faction, either the Peacekeepers or the Survivors, and watch how they turn ruins on the roofs into facilities such as schools, farms, and workshops. As each faction has their own goals and aesthetics, this decision will actively shape the panorama of The City.
Don’t worry if it seems complex, we’ve got you. In the vast open world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human, you’ll meet plenty of characters who will help you understand it better, resolve your doubts, and even tell some of The City’s secrets. If you need any guidance, look for them during the day. At night, they’ll be waiting for dawn, spinning stories by the campfires, singing songs, and organizing street theatres. And of course, your heroic adventures meet many ears, so when you pause for a moment and listen, you’ll be surprised at how familiar their tales may seem.
While exploring The City’s streets, you’re also going to explore its sounds. Our interactive music will accompany you throughout your journey, adjusting itself to whatever you’re doing and wherever you’re going. Your combat skills, foes, and parkour moves all will determine the soundtrack you’ll hear. It’ll encourage you to try harder and keep going both when you parkour and fight. Run across the rooftops using the moves you’ve learned, and you’ll definitely notice that your flow translates to the music. Can you keep up the momentum and get the most intense parkouring soundtrack ever? Soon, you’ll be able to find out. On top of that, the factions you can support and characters you’re going to meet have their own themes as well, so you’ll have the power to influence what you’re hearing not just locally, but globally too.
Now, the surprise we’ve saved for last. As you already know, we’ve got some pretty amazing people helping us make Dying Light 2 Stay Human a truly unforgettable experience. Today, we’d like to introduce you to one of them, though most of you probably already know her. Wait for it…

Complex, stubborn and unforgiving, she can become one of your most valuable allies, so do not rile her up. What happens to the ones who do isn’t pleasant, really.
