Dying Gentle 2 has no weapons, and it has a shotgun
One of many huge inflection factors in zombie sport Dying Gentle is while you first lay fingers on a firearm. Up till that time, you had been dealing the Harran’s infestation of zombies with no matter melee weapons you can cobble collectively – cricket bats, pipes, and creatively electrified mixtures of junk that would take away zombie limbs whereas cauterizing the injuries. Weapons modified the sport – they usually gained’t be a part of Dying Gentle 2. Nonetheless, there’s a shotgun in Dying Gentle 2.
Certain, that sounds a bit contradictory: you may’t have a sport with “no weapons” if there’s a shotgun, that’s simply how actuality works, proper? Properly, it’s only a matter of the way you’re counting firearms versus different weapons. In Dying Gentle 2, which is about some years after the occasions of the primary co-op sport, a world warfare has led to the destruction of most weapons – which means you gained’t be capable of discover mass-produced weapons mendacity across the metropolis the way in which you finally did within the unique Dying Gentle.
You’ll, nevertheless, nonetheless be capable of craft weapons – and these craftable arms embody a number of ranged choices. With the suitable elements, you’ll even be capable of construct a rudimentary shotgun – which technically breaks the “no weapons” rule, however it ought to really feel fairly pure within the publish apocalyptic setting of Dying Gentle 2.
Right here’s developer Techland’s newest ‘Ask Me Something’ video that explains the gun scenario, amongst different particulars:
The grappling hook that allow you to whiz round Harran in Dying Gentle is seemingly getting an overhaul for Dying Gentle 2. Lead sport designer Tymon Smektała says it now feels rather more bodily, and that whereas it gained’t be as very like being Spider-man because it was within the first sport, it’s nonetheless plenty of enjoyable to make use of – particularly because you’ll be capable of use it in fight by some means.
We’re unsure precisely what meaning but, however we’re eager to seek out out. The Dying Gentle 2 launch date remains to be unclear in the intervening time, however with Techland beginning to discuss it once more (following an indefinite delay), we will in all probability depend on listening to one thing extra particular within the close to future.
