On PS5, Dying Light 2 will have a lot of gear

Part of that last lap to launch includes drip-feeding little pieces of trivia, like this one: there are over 500 different pieces of unique gear in the final game. That’s a lot of shoes, jackets, gloves, et al – presumably all with different properties and buffs. Building loadouts is a big part of the fun in games of this ilk, so it’s reassuring to learn that there’ll be plenty of variety to play around with. And if the first entry is anything to go by, there’ll be no shortage of post-release support either.

Dying Light 2: Staying Alive may feel like an afterthought in February, nestled between juggernauts like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West – but the original co-op zombiethon was a massive hit for Polish developer Techland, and we wouldn’t count out the sequel following in its footsteps. Delays have dampened anticipation for the sequel, but it appears to be on the home stretch now.
