Here we go with the next major update for Dying Light 2 here from Techland to take us all further into the undead world once more. This one being the exploration aspect of the game and world for us to enjoy and how we will be able to modify things just be existing in the world. That and making all of our choices in the game that will have the missions and other aspects reacting as they should. Nothing new to the Dying Light IP, but something that the team has made sure to further along here to make things drastic. Like the fact that we can lose full NPCs in the game if we choose to make a school instead of a warehouse. As an example here at least. From what we have had before, things can go even further out there.
In addition to all of these fun things to explore in Dying Light 2 when it comes to the environment, it looks like we will have more characters in the mix to enjoy too. In this instance, we have Rosario Dawson picking up the role of a character named Lawan. A character that will be able to be changed along the way with those choices we will have in Dying Light 2. To the point that Lawan can be overly helpful or another antagonist to hinder all of our progress in the mix. Almost like some of the characters that we have seen from the actor in the past. It will all lead into more of the dynamic nature of the game as we head on through and survive the nights moving forward.

Speaking of all of that being dynamic, we have a new listen for Dying Light 2 in terms of the main theme and how some of the music will flow in the game too. It will be AI driven as we hit different points in our runs and combat. This will lead to an interesting soundtrack to the action as it will shift constantly and sound like it will only stick with the same music for a while if we stay still. You can hear the main theme for Dying Light 2 just below and see how it will be mixed based on some of the above actions. It is something that could lead to some fun advancements in the industry to make sure we always have a fitting soundtrack in all of our video games moving forward.
Dying Light 2 — “Run, Jump, Fight” (Main Theme)
“Run, Jump, Fight” is an official Dying Light 2 main theme music track composed by Olivier Derivière featuring London Contemporary Orchestra.
Internationally acclaimed for his distinctive and dynamic soundtracks, BAFTA-nominated French composer and music designer Olivier Derivière (A Plague Tale: Innocence, Remember Me, Alone In The Dark) scores his most ambitious soundtrack yet in Dying Light 2.
