Dying Light 2 to Feature Rosario Dawson; New Open World Footage Revealed​



Renowned actress Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, The Defenders, Sin City, Zombieland - Double Tap, The Mandalorian) has been confirmed to feature in Dying Light 2, the upcoming open world action RPG by Techland.

Dawson, who already starred in other games like Syndicate, Lego Dimensions, Ratchet & Clank and Dishonored, will play a character named Lawan in the game. According to the actress, she's a very tough character who's looking to get revenge on those who wronged her in the past. It seems like the player's choices will have an influence on Lawan, too, and whether she ends up as a deranged hunter or a protector instead.

The fourth episode of Dying 2 Know also showcased some new Dying Light 2 open world footage. Last but not least, Techland announced that the soundtrack was created by Olivier Deriviere (composer of Alone in the Dark, Of Orcs and Men, Remember Me, Bound By Flame, The Technomancer, Get Even, The Council, Vampyr, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Streets of Rage 4) in the Abbey Road Studios, one of the most recognizable studios in the UK previously used by artists such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and U2.

The main theme music track is called Run, Jump, Fight and it features The London Contemporary Orchestra as well. You can check it out below.





Dying Light 2 has had a fairly troubled development phase. It was originally due in the first half of 2020, but its final release date is now set for February 4th, 2022, when the game will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch (via the cloud).

Thats so funny, I’ve been seeing the ads with her character and I didn’t even clue in till I saw this post. It doesn’t look like her at all, I mean common. At least to me it doesn’t look like her.

I guess the solution to development hell now is to add a celebrity for no good reason.

She had to have been shoehorned in, this is a pretty big get for a game of this level, they've never mentioned her before.

Pretty good character design. Doesn't look exactly like her but is close enough to recognize.

Just like Keanu Reeves now Dying Light 2 has a star in it and just like Cyberpunk it's a polish dev, delayed several times, etc. Why am I having horrible deja vu feelings about it?
Lol yup and red flags and they also showed the same gameplay demo more than once.

If it wasn't her name in the poster, I would not have guessed that was supposed to be her. It would just be some random character.

Now if games continue this trend of adding TV and movie stars, then the cost of making them is going to balloon even further.

Seems super unnecessary, but I guess they thought they needed something to get more eyes on the game.

In one of the trailers her character looked totaly different

For starters, she was white lol

So yeah, they probably got Rosario not long ago and completely changed her character

Poor devs, development hell just got even worse, probably

Cool

I consider her an average looking chick.

Not hot yet far from ugly.
