Since new game launches are not cheap, it is important to do a quick analysis of the re-playability of the game after you have completed the storyline. There have been many rumours about what will happen to the Dying Light 2 game after the Epilogue mission. So in this article, we will guide you on whether you can play Dying Light 2 or not, after completing all the campaign missions.
It has been a couple of days since the Dying Light 2 game has been released. And we were very excited to play it from the launch day itself. The game had a total of 150K players on steam on the launch date, which made Techland’s Dying Light 2 launch, one of the biggest releases this year.
This game is a follow-up to the original 2015 Dying Light game, which again fuses the zombies and the parkour mechanics. It is set in the European city of Villedor and you have to play as Aiden Caldwell, a pilgrim. The game is always known for its smooth parkour movements along with a combination of slides and jumps from one point to another. As the whole city of Villedor is overrun by the zombies, much like its prequel, you would have to fight and dodge all of the bandits and the undead to complete the quests.
The game is long if you go through all the narrations and because of this length of the game, there is a lot you can miss out on. So if you are wondering to come back for those after dealing with the main missions, you can do it.
So this article is going to tell you whether you can play the Dying Light 2 after completing all the Campaign missions, or there is a New Game Plus mode.
Can you play Dying Light after the Epilogue mission?
Yes, definitely, you can play the game even after the campaign missions are over. Whatever end you get, it doesn’t matter, you can continue playing the game regardless. Now, it is important to note that after you complete the final mission in Dying Light 2, there are some of the story moments that are reversed to make some side quests and side activities playable. Since the campaign mission is completely over, you won’t be able to replay the last mission or any other story missions in general without replaying the full game.
Techland’s Dying Light 2 becomes more difficult than its prequel because the enemies and the quests level up their difficulty. This means that all the bandits and zombies you encounter will adapt to the current player ranking. But that doesn’t mean you can easily chop off zombies heads. You will also not find yourself ever in an area where there are lower ranked zombies.
The gears that will drop will be scaled up to your level only, and it’s a good thing for the players who want to complete the previous side quests with the high-level weapons and without having to worry about getting low-level weapons as a reward. There are tons of side quests in Dying Light 2 and I recommend you complete all the side quests properly.
Can you restart the game while keeping the same gear and progressions?
No, you can’t. There aren’t any Game Plus modes where you can start over your journey again using the same high-level weapons that you have acquired earlier. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do it. There is a small workaround if you have a friend who wants to start over with the Dying Light 2. So once your friend has finished the main prologue, you can join him and team up to play Dying Light 2 Coop.
You can start and play the early missions in the game by retaining your finished character. Another point to be noted here is that all the campaign progress that you have made will be saved in your friend’s version of the game. You won’t be able to access those missions again if you want to play solo. Dying Light 2 is a long term project for Techland, and we are sure that they will add the Game Plus mode in future updates.
So this was all about Can you play Dying Light 2 after all the Campaign Missions. And the short answer is yes, but not with your current player progression.
