Player Choices Determine In-Game Soundtrack in Dying Light 2

Techland today released Sounds of the Dying City, a short documentary detailing how the Dying Light 2 Stay Human soundtrack was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and revealing how composer Olivier Derivière’s vision comes to life in-game, responding to player choices.

Collaborating with musicians around the world before ultimately recording the official soundtrack at the legendary Abbey Road Studios (previously used by artists like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and U2), Derivière (Streets of Rage 4, Vampyr, A Plague Tale: Innocence) imbues The City with unnerving atmosphere and pulse-pounding thrills. The soundtrack unfolds organically in response to player choices and actions, whether their crusade is one of silent acrobatics, melee brutalism, or anything in-between.

Critical moments in the story ask players to make a choice, with ever-rippling consequences for the world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human and the music you will hear along the pilgrimage.

Witness the music recording process in Abbey Road Studios, one of the most recognizable studios in the UK (previously used by artists such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and U2).
