Previous episodes in the series brought Aiden Caldwell, the protagonist, along with the monsters the players will face, to light. Techland later displayed perhaps the title’s most essential mechanics, parkour, and creative combat.

But episode 4 was unique in its own way. According to Tymon Smektala, lead game designer at Techland, what was revealed earlier was just the “tip of the iceberg”. The latest episode took players on a journey in the vast open-world of Dying Light 2; while deep-diving into the creation of the environment and the theme track of the game. The devs also revealed various secrets of “The City”. But the highlight of the event was at the end. A classic name-drop/ face reveal of one of the most important characters in the game, Lawan.
