During the Microsoft E3 event, developer Techland showcased a trailer and gameplay demo for Dying Light 2.  The trailer showed off all the parkour and bloody melee combat thrills of the original game, but a follow-up clip with a presentation from narrative designer Chris Avellone ( Fallout: New Vegas, Planescape: Torment) included scenes that demonstrated how the game's city worked, with power struggles between factions, as well as ecosystems.

According to Avellone, players will make choices that shape the future of the city and which factions emerge victoriously, and the consequences of that victory. In the example we saw, whoever controlled the water supply determined which parts of the population suffered and thrived. You can watch the trailer right here:
