Dying Light 2: Stay Human Review

Dying Light 2 puts you at ease quickly because the environment it provides is nothing but cozy.

The games take place 15 years after the virus epidemic that was the topic of the first one, and depicts a planet in terrible condition (in a way that resonates with us after our own real-life pandemic experiences).

Aiden, the primary character in Dying Light 2, is a Pilgrim, one of the few brave people who are willing to flee the remaining fortified cities. He is looking for his sister Mia while being haunted by childhood experiments, and his research takes him to Villedor.

The GRE is a medical, quasi-paramilitary group that took the plunge to investigate a cure for the viral epidemic in the original games Harran, but was later blamed for subsequent outbreaks and chased into obscurity.

Aiden receives a GRE access key on his journey to Villedor, which eventually becomes the game's main plot MacGuffin, because it is the only way to access anything GRE-related, which is common in Villedor.
