Dying Light 2 Stay Human: Bloody Ties is here and with it comes an exciting story, more dangerous Infected, powerful weapons, and a new location. Carnage Hall is the epicenter of splendor, fame, fortune, but also death, barbarity and bloodshed. It is the one place where the greatest fighters come to seek glory.
While creating an arena in a post-apocalyptic environment, we had to come at it from an approach that prioritizes amusement and spectacle.
The idea for this first story DLC originated from a further need to develop a society that has grown accustomed to its conditions. Now that things have stabilized, people need to find a way to seek out new experiences for themselves. They want to move forward, and a part of that is finding a source of entertainment, as would be the case in any other civilization.
As a result, our development team had to think of ways to recreate shows and spectacles. There were many lingering questions on how to implement all that into a fallen world with no laws where people have turned to their most primal instincts. To find the answers, we turned to history. What we learned quickly was no matter the times, even in the darkest ones, people need two things: bread and circuses.
That’s where the character of Astrid comes into play. She is the entertainer and thrill executant of the post-apocalyptic world who wishes to give the masses what they want. Starting out, the character had to create something big without any resources at her disposal. The arena had small beginnings but eventually grew into everything she had envisioned.
The hostess finds a way to monetize the suffering of others. Naturally, she kept expanding her financial empire to the point where Carnage Hall started to feature more creative and advanced elements. That’s why this story DLC includes the best aspects of Dying Light: creative combat, parkour, and strategic opponent takedowns. The arena aims to remind our players that no matter how far society falls, people of this world will always find a way to adapt and eventually make the best of any situation. Even when all seems lost.
Carnage Hall is now open for the whole world to see. Experience the gladiator extravaganza, wage battles with the Infected, and find yourself caught in a classic revenge tale. Surely, there is more to be seen behind the curtain.
