In the teaser trailer gives us a first look at the mayhem set to unleash with the new DLC. It shows two figures sparring in combat, before one opponent brutally slaughters the other. He then claims a skull-like crown for his own. The trailer also announces there will be a full look at the content at Gamescom on August 23rd, which is Opening Night Live.
Not much else is known about the DLC but we do know that it will run “parallel to the main story” according to previous teases from lead designer Tymon Smektala. The location also is set for “a specific place outside of the Villedor city limits”. From the looks of the trailer, there is some arena or Thunderdome situation going on. In the background we can see “Carnage Hall” which seems to confirm the one-on-one arena.
Previously the first major story DLC was set to release in the summer of 2022, but was pushed to September in order to have a bit more time to add polish. The post-launch road map for Dying Light 2 was also revealed to span over the course of 5 years.
Dying Light 2 is currently available on Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PC and will release on Nintendo Switch via cloud version later this year.
