Just like its prequel, the all-new Dying Light 2 game from Techland, has its very own day and night cycle. The city as we know is filled with mutated infected and even deadlier after sunset, and travelling around the city during the night is not only dangerous but equally rewarding. So in this blog, we will discuss is it worth travelling at night in the Dying Light 2 game.
It has almost been some time since Dying Light 2 was released. And we are very excited to play it from the launch day itself. Steam reported a total of 150K players waiting to play Dying Light 2 on the release date, which made the Dying Light 2 game one of the biggest launches this year.
The game is a follow-up to the original 2015 Dying Light game, developed by Techland. This is a unique Zombie game, unlike any other zombie game we have seen before. It is set in the European city of Villedor and you have to play as Aiden Caldwell, a pilgrim. The game is best known for its smooth parkour movements and incorporating slides and jumps. The environment is very responsive, and you can climb onto anything.
So to answer the question in short, yes, it is worth it. The experience is different and much more thrilling during the night. This article will include everything that you need to about leaving your safe zone and exploring the game world during the nighttime. You will also find some ways of gaining more Experience bonuses as well the main dangers at night.
Exclusive Quests during Nighttime
The nighttime brings you a lot of unique quests, and travelling during the night in Dying Light 2 is much more profitable than its prequel. If you want to explore and loot the areas that are swarming with zombies during the day, you can easily do it during the night. Now you don’t have to face and run away from the Volatiles. You can reach and complete quests that are impossible to do during the day.
The quests and the activities include the following
- Forsaken Stores
- Dark Hollows
- GRE Anomalies
During the day, the deadly groups of infected stay inside abandoned buildings, and infiltrating them during the day is impossible. So it’s better to explore those areas at night. But travelling to the prime quest locations can be challenging if you are not using stealth-based tactics.
We talked about GRE Anomalies here. This is a new activity, and it’s better to complete them at night because neither the prime infected monsters appear during the day nor you will be able to reach the inhibitor chests in those locations
The game Dying Light 2 also features main and side quests which can only be completed after sunset. You can speed up the process by visiting a safe location and resting till you wake up during the nighttime.
Experience Bonus during Nighttime
Don’t forget to perform combat and parkour activities during the nighttime. You will get more XP bonus for performing both. This is one of the few and most effective ways to develop and upgrade your character.Also, do note, that you will lose all XP bonuses if you die before the morning sets in.
Is it safe to travel at night during the Nighttime
One of the main differences between the original Dying Light and this new Dying Light 2 is the nighttime difficulty. The difficulty in travelling around the city is way too hard and challenging in the original game. But that doesn’t mean the night time in the new game is safe. Yes, it is generally safer, but you still need to be a little careful. The main enemies that you will come across are the howlers. These howlers can start chases when you get too close to the infected. Try to keep a safe distance from those howlers and take them down if you can, using steal tactics.
Another main issue you will face is the lower immunity of Aiden. The immunity bar shows up during the night time and you should avoid letting it go down to zero. If you reach zero immunity, you die. Thankfully, there are different methods to restore and extend immunity bars like
- UV Bars
- Immunity Boosters
- UV Light
- UV Shroomz
Travelling at night is much more profitable, and it outweighs the risks involved. The night expeditions as we mentioned before is the best time to get more valuable loot and level up Aiden. Just avoid getting eliminated, otherwise you will lose everything (items, XP Bonus) you have collected for that night.
