As we all pretty much know, Dying Light was a sort of spiritual successor to Dead Island, and one of the most iconic mechanics from those games was creating your own weapons. Fast forward 20 years and weapon crafting is more critical than ever in the sequel, as players will need to create all sorts of weapons from scratch in the modern Dark Ages.
Unfortunately, Dying Light 2 was recently delayed until February 2022. It’s only two months later than originally planned, but thankfully the developers have released a new ‘Dying 2 Know More’ video showcasing the various weapons players can use and craft. It’s pretty short, but if you enjoyed crafting your own weaponry in the first game, then the sequel shouldn’t disappoint.
Essentially, finding high-tier weaponry will be much more difficult this time round, which means more emphasis on crafting new items for combat. There’s very little shown off, but the developers have at least confirmed that yes, you can once again create an electric machete. As the developers said: “classic, and stylish.”
What do you think? Are you excited for Dying Light 2? What kind of weapons will you create? And what were your favorite weapons in the original Dying Light? Let us know!
