The Dying Gentle 2 map is massive—even greater than I assumed it was after I started taking part in. After the tutorial takes you into the town for the primary time, the map turns into out there and also you get a have a look at the primary 4 districts inside its borders. Merely operating end-to-end by way of a single district can take some time, even with parkour serving to you dodge zombies and pace throughout rooftops.
However that is simply the beginning of the open world of Villedor. There’s an entire second part of the town that is even greater, which solely turns into accessible after finishing a number of story missions that grant entry to the tunnel that connects the 2 halves of the town. The 2 sections of the town are separated due to the army bombarding the world with yellow poisonous sludge that shortly kills anybody who tries crossing it.
Here is a have a look at the total Dying Gentle 2 map after 60 hours of play, and my apologies for stitching it collectively so crudely. It does not match on a single display (except you zoom all the way in which out, which makes it a bit ineffective) and it is not a flat 2D map so it warps as you scroll it. I did my greatest! You’ll be able to enlarge it by clicking the highest proper nook.
Getting across the massive metropolis takes a while, however there are quick journey choices that develop into out there as you progress. Metro stations in a number of districts will be cleared out to develop into protected zones, and as soon as you have visited a metro station you should utilize it to sleep, retailer your gear, and fast-travel again to it irrespective of the place you’re on the map. There are additionally a few massive settlement hubs that develop into out there for fast-travel.
The borders you see across the edges of the town districts… properly, there’s extra world past these too, surprisingly. A couple of missions take you out previous the town partitions and poisonous zones the place there are some fairly sizable wilderness areas. (And even some nature-loving zombies). As you’ll be able to inform by the icons scattered round on my map, there are a couple of areas of the town I nonetheless have not spent all that a lot time in, a bunch of quests (marked by ! icons) to choose up and unknown areas (with ? icons) to search out. And previous these borders to the south there’s much more to discover. A few of it’s extra wilderness. Some is submerged underwater. Dying Gentle 2’s map is genuinely large, and appears to get greater each time I run round close to the sides of it. There’s plenty of world on the market!
The dimensions of Dying Gentle 2’s map is perhaps resulting from Techland’s plans so as to add extra story and paid DLC sooner or later. There positive appears to be sufficient room for it.
