Dying Light 2 Extended Gameplay Demo

Techland unveils full gameplay demo of Dying Light 2 from E3 2019, showcasing combat and parkour elements.

Up until now, upcoming survival horror game Dying Light 2 has only given us a brief look at its gameplay when developer/publisher studio Techland took E3 2018 to premiere an official announcement trailer to reveal the title to fans.

Then a new trailer was released at Xbox briefing during E3 2019 event and a full 26-minute long extended gameplay demo was shown to press behind-closed-doors, which has now become available for everyone to watch and enjoy.

This newly revealed gameplay footage comes with exclusive developer commentary to point out some key-notes.

An infected survivor named Aiden Caldwell is serving as protagonist of the central plotline and will be a key-focus of entire playthrough. He embarks a mission to find drinking water supply for The City as it will be on a brink of collapse.

His guide and friend in doing so is Frank, who thinks the only person who can solve this water crisis for them is The Colonel who is a pretty crazy guy and runs a fraction named The Renegades from The City's pumping station.

Using his influence, Frank arranges a meeting between them and representatives from two other fractions. Aiden is called in as well to join them during this meet up and he sees everyone else celebrating at Frank's bar indoors.

From above rooftop of a building in District 2, he sees a truck approaches and hearing a gunshot, he quickly jumps in to fight couple of Renegade members who shot Frank and his friend Matt tells him to get to Colonel.

From there on, Aiden keeps following that truck which came in earlier by leaping from building to building using his parkour abilities. In some cases, he made good use of a grappling hook and a paraglider at his disposal to make jumps.

In between his leaping and swinging, he would come across some startled civilians and in some cases, small group of zombies. Most of them were acting dozy and he even used one of them to grab and used to survive a fall when landing.

Chasing the truck, he crashed through a wooden ledge and ended up in a Dark Zone at one point, where he was almost about to get overwhelmed by swarm of zombies and his infection starts progressing but Aiden managed to fight back.

He wields a modded weapon that is very efficient for melee combat against undead hordes but also can use UV flashlight or special UV flares when he is trapped among a small horde of zombies in a tight space to make a way out.

Through more jumping and leaping, he managed to find a way into the truck and eventually into pumping station, where The Colonel resides and after fighting his henchmen, Aiden was finally able to turn on the water pumps.

This reveals a huge open-world sandbox full of new mechanics and quests for Aiden Caldwell to take part in. It also attracts group of marauders towards Colonel's base and some dreadful mutated creatures to rise from their watery grave.

According to developers, Dying Light sequel is at least four times larger than its predecessor title. However, you will lose at least 25 percent of overall content each time you will play and they believe it's actually a good thing.

Some latest inclusion of anti-zombie tech like UV lights gives the hero a better fighting chance whenever he is mobbed up and then there is a ranged weapon called Scorpio that is well suited to one-shot your enemies from distances.

Return of weapon modding is a plus for its weapons-based combat system that has evolved from Dying Light to become more gruesome. Player actions will turn direction for in-game narrative and unlock new gameplay mechanics to explore.

Dying Light 2 is currently scheduled to arrive during spring 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. Polish studio Techland will be distributing the in association with publisher Square Enix for North American regions.

Link's Awakening depicts another iconic quest of legendary Hyrule hero who washed ashore of a mysterious island of Koholint after having his ship wrecked on a raging storm one night and an unconscious Link was found by a young girl named Marin.

He got his sword and shield back but in order to leave the island, he will have to collect a bunch of magical items to awaken the Wind Fish. So he goes through on dungeon to another, fighting enemies and uncovers many hidden secrets of Koholint.

Since this is going to be a complete remake of 1993 Game Boy classic, its story remains the same as original and unlike other Zelda titles; it takes place entirely out of Hyrule where most of his heroic adventures usually take place.

In a modern re-imagining, Link's in-game sprite looks like mini amiibo figures rendered in polished colorful and cartoonish 3D graphic, thus staying faithful to original concept of the game while making an appeal to a new generation.

Both digital and physical version of Standard Edition is priced only $59.99 but no pre-order bonus has been announced so far. For $69.99, you can own Link's Awakening: Dreamer Edition that comes with base game and an art book.

Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remains of the greatest from TLoZ series and now that Nintendo is reworking it for Switch, we can probably expect them to pick its predecessor A Link to the Past or sequel Ocarina of Time for a remake next.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel Announced

In a surprise reveal, Breath of the Wild sequel for Switch is announced during Nintendo Direct E3 2019.

Following release action-adventure game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 2017 for Nintendo Switch and Wii U consoles, developer/publisher Nintendo received immense praise and a sequel become almost imminent.

Nintendo Direct E3 2019 presentation ended on a high-note with an official announcement of a sequel currently being in development and even though they didn't share much detail, a surprise teaser trailer was revealed for all.

This new cinematic teaser takes us back to kingdom of Hyrule once again with Link and Zelda but everything seems cryptic and dark. These two were seemingly exploring some dark, underground dungeons riding on a beast.

After passing by some ancient wall paintings, they come across a mystical force is growing from beneath and holding what appears to be a Gerudo. Shortly before this happened, they even discover the corpse of Ganon during their quest.

RELATED: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: Breath of the Wild Free DLC

That magical force even seems to grab hold of Link as well before Hyrule Castle is seen shaking up from below ground. Apparently, Link either gets corrupted or kidnapped by an ancient evil and that only leaves Zelda behind to defend Hyrule.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild came out as a Switch launch title that went on to receive universal acclaim and completely reinvent TLoZ series. It was a smash-hit success for Nintendo and has sold over 14 million copies worldwide by March 2019.

RELATED: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Wins Game of The Year at DICE Awards

Back in November 2018, there were rumors of a new mainline Legend of Zelda game may be closer than many would like to think. Many fans didn't even expect a sequel so soon but obviously, it was a welcomed surprise to them.

We are guessing that development phase of Breath of the Wild sequel may be in very early stage; so much so that Nintendo even gave it a title. Or they have things set as they wanted but possibly redacted its title to avoid giving major info out.

You may need to pick someone expert in combat who can punch his way out of trouble or good at infiltration to get in places harder to reach. Getting a doctor within your group can benefit all of your team members with health buff.

Players can amass up to 20 rebel members from entire populace to join them and you can switch between them at any time to properly employ their diverse talents. Plus, leveling up your crew earns them extra perks and necessary adjustments.

If you get into a situation and get knocked up, you can either keep fighting or surrender. There is a permadeath system, which means you are out if you go down but if you are sent to jail, at least another DedSec member can bail you out.
