If we stick to what was mentioned by Techland some time ago, Dying Light 2: Stay Human will continue to receive content for a long time, just as it happened with the first delivery. And despite the fact that it is already a long game -although not as long as it was said at one point-, surely there are already many players who have realized it and are waiting for a game mode to continue their adventure post-apocalyptic, the New Game +, which the Polish studio has talked about.
This New Game + mode gives players the chance to start the game over, adding replayability, and allowing them to do so with the inventory and skills we finished the first game with. Of course, raising the level of difficulty and the hardness of the enemies. Although it is very common in all kinds of games, at the moment it is not available in Dying Light 2: Stay Human, but it will be soon.
No specific date, but “soon”
It was on Twitter where a fan responded to a post by Tymon Smektala -the game’s lead designer- about the addition of this popular game mode, to which Smektala was kind enough to reply. “I can’t confirm any dates for New Game +, but we listen to your requests,” said Smektala. “I hope it can be something that happens soon.”
For the time being, Dying Light 2: Stay Human is still being updated to fix bugs, though hopefully in the future it will receive major updates just like the original game did. Over the years, Dying Light implemented very interesting expansions that not only added more hours of gameplay, but also completely different mechanics or even settings, especially with The Following and Hellraid DLCs, the latter set in a dark fantasy universe.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC, its version for Nintendo Switch having been delayed.
