Dying Light 2's story DLC won't pick up where the base game left off right away, exploring narratives that happen "sideways to the main events," at least for a while.
Having launched earlier this year, Dying Light 2 is slated to receive more than five years of post-launch content. Its first-year roadmap promises at least one story DLC that's currently slated to arrive in June, alongside a variety of other cosmetic and gameplay additions, some of which are already live.
Speaking to Game Informer, Lead Game Designer Tymon Smektała confirmed that the developer will spend some time exploring events that happened parallel to the main story before it pushes things forward. The team is, nevertheless, already thinking up how Aiden's story might continue.
"At some point, we will actually start adding to the events that happened at the end of the game," Smektała said. "We have some ideas. On paper, as they are implemented right now, it seems promising, but definitely, this will be a challenge."
Aside from addressing the direction of Dying Light 2's story DLC, he also confirmed that its first-year roadmap will feature more content than Techland has revealed thus far.
"We have already revealed a very high-level roadmap for the first year, but as players will soon discover, we will add more to that first-year roadmap..and we will invite them to actually discover more content that will drop within the first year."
The developer hopes to satisfy the wishes of its community by spreading its focus across online play, single-player content, story DLC, but also platforming, and melee combat, with its post-launch offerings.
Dying Light 2 proved quite popular at launch and I enjoyed its visceral combat and fluid parkour while reviewing it. It'll certainly be interesting to see how continued support fleshes out Techland's open-world game.
