Microsoft served up a new Dying Light 2 trailer at its E3 press event today, revealing a world torn not just by hordes of undead but by the human survivors who have turned on each other with a predatory viciousness. But one man, Aiden Caldwell, isn't having it.  

But Aiden has problems of his own. He's infected—but he also seems to have maintained a tighter grip on his humanity others who have managed to avoid the plague. His "high-flying parkour skills and brutal combat ability make him a valuable asset in this crumbling metropolis," but he's not just a brawler: Through him, players "will make impactful choices that shape the world as they play." That promise of a heightened focus on narrative isn't entirely surprising given that Chris Avellone is working on it

Also of note, since that's what we're actually here for, is a release target. Microsoft has pegged Dying Light 2 for a spring 2020 release. 

Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
