Dying Light 2 Stay Human: how parkour and creative combat fuel the action

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

How do you stay alive in a world that devolved into Modern Dark Ages? You need your skills, your weapons and your wits. Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s parkour and creative combat mechanics let you combine the three to outsmart and outpower your foes.

Let’s start with parkour. It’s the basis of your survival in The City. Here, a stark raving mad Infected can lurk behind every corner, and the streets are full of hostile goons. You need to be quick on your feet to surprise or outrun them. Being able to jump between roofs, swing on monkey bars, or even grapple-hook to an elevated position is a life-saver. Literally! Besides, if you want to find any supplies, your best chance is to check all the places that are hard to reach.

And yes, you do get a grapple hook! As well as a paraglider and a bunch of other useful tools. These will change the way you move around and open up a whole lot of new tactics. This is especially important since The City is a sprawling, rich, vertically layered environment. It’s full of alternate routes to explore.

In Dying Light 2 Stay Human, parkouring is what they call ‘easy to learn, hard to master’. It always feels engaging, fluid and natural. To ensure this, we have created thousands of animations and countless environmental elements to interact with. As a result, parkour is like a yin to creative combat’s yang. And speaking of combat…

The way you approach enemies will depend on the faction you side with, the weapons you prefer, the threat you face, and your current location. The variety of possibilities at any given time lets you truly find your own style of playing. However, you won’t be the dominating power on the battlefield. The enemies pose a serious threat, and they have their own quirks or tactics. The Infected are mostly simple brutes, dangerous in packs, but the humans are even worse. They rarely wander alone. depending on group tactics instead.

How your enemies behave also differs depending on the weapons they carry. We made sure the arsenal fits into the

“I Have a Dream.”

TIME Studios presents March Through Time, an all-new experience where we celebrate the life and legacy of Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Developed by members of the Fortnite Creative Community, this immersive journey allows players to witness Dr. Martin Luther King’s full “I Have a Dream” speech. 

Celebrating MLK: TIME Studios presents March Through Time in Fortnite

Experience D.C. 63 

March Through Time will teleport players nearly 60 years in the past to a re-imagined Washington, DC called D.C. 63. Developed by members of the Fortnite Creative community, this fully immersive experience will allow players to witness the Civil Rights teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King. 

This experience was built by members ChaseJackman, GQUanoe, XWDFr, and YU7A. In D.C. 63, players will travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the United States National Mall where Dr. King made his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.

The Experience will also feature museum-inspired points of interest and quests you can complete with other players. These quests should bring an important reminder that relates to Dr. King’s speech: We move forward when we work together.

Completing the Dr. King and Civil Rights movement challenges will unlock a D.C. 63 spray for your locker.

Inspired by the work of TIME and their partners — JuVee Productions, Digital Domain,, and Ryot — March Through Time would not have been possible without the contributions of American Family Insurance, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr.

For further in-depth reading and to educate yourself, family, or friends about the historic struggle for Civil Rights, please visit TIME’s The March website. We also hope this experience helps equip students to have meaningful discussions not only in the classroom, but in their personal lives as well.
