Get a Closer Look at the Monsters in Dying Light 2 Stay Human

The night has come in our new gameplay video, so grab your flashlight and join us, as we explore the secrets of a dark zone. Take a closer look at various types of the Infected, stand face to face with a Volatile, and try to make it through in one piece. But that’ll only be possible if you check out our hints. Are you ready?

One thing is to know your enemies. Another, to know their weaknesses. We’ll cover both, just to be sure. So, who are all the monsters you’ll meet in The City? Let’s say you’d get infected. First, you might think it’s just the flu, as the symptoms are very similar. That is, if you didn’t live in a post-apocalyptic city overrun by a deadly virus, where you’d know just too well it’s more than that, and your race against the infection would begin.

You’d most likely also have a biomarker — a special wristband showing the stages of your sickness and how close you’re to the turning point. If you failed to find enough UV light or Antizin in time, the symptoms would get worse and worse, until you wouldn’t even be able to speak anymore. Then, your biomarker would turn red, and it’d be a straight road to becoming a Volatile. And once you’ve turned, there’s no going back.

After reaching the turning point, the thing that you wanted the most — UV rays — becomes your worst enemy. Stay in the sun, and you’ll degrade into a wreck of a monster, a Biter. You’ll lose whatever leftovers of consciousness you might’ve had and keep roaming the streets mindlessly until you die from the light.

But it doesn’t have to get that bad, though it’s rather relative, because if you let the virus progress in the dark, you’ll become the strongest monster of all — a Volatile. Fast, intelligent, and deadly, he’s the one thing you’d never want to meet. So, our first tip should be quite clear by now — stay in UV light and use it against the monsters. It’ll keep you safe from both the infection and the Infected.

But exposure to light is only one factor that defines which monster you’ll become. There are more, like the chemicals dropped onto The City in the past. Accelerating the progression of the virus in the sick individuals, they caused their bodies to change too rapidly, which, in turn, led to various mutations.

For example, if the virus seized somebody’s vocal cords, they could become a Howler, an Infected who is both too afraid and unable to fight a human, so he calls and alerts those more fit for the job with his piercing scream. Don’t let him spot you. Another product of the chemicals is the Demolisher, whose body grew extremely large, especially the hands, and his skin hardened with stonelike tissue. He can charge or slam the ground with his fists to create a kind of a shockwave as well as throw immensely heavy objects, so watch out for those flying boulders. Against the Demolisher, you will need to rely on your agility.

But there’s also the Banshee — smaller, yet so deft you won’t see her coming. She’s quick and takes you by surprise, attacking you from the roofs. If you get to fight her, your strength will be your best chance. And then, some monsters mutated in the most unpredictable ways.

The Revenant got a curious ability to buff and summon nearby Infected with the substance coming from the growths on his back. He’s rather uncommon. You’ll find him only in specific places, and only at night. But we’re not so sure looking for him is such a good idea. Unless you’re ready to fight an army.

So the next tip would be to never ever enter the chemical clouds in The City, and when you fight those who did, adjust your tactics to abuse their weaknesses. And since we’re at the “no entry” kind of advice, this one should follow naturally: Don’t roam the dark zones during the day. That’s when all the Infected are there, hiding from the sun. It’s smart to use that time to explore the streets and come back to the dark zones at dusk, when they have left to hunt. It doesn’t mean you can be careless, though, as there are still some monsters, Volatiles even, lying and walking around. That’s when our improved stealth mechanics come in handy. Don’t rush and think about your next steps, and you’ll make it through without having a horde of the Infected chase you.

And it’s worth trying your luck in the dark zones, however dangerous they may be. They’re full of valuable loot, inhibitors probably being the most precious of all. Now, these chemicals are the ones you actually want. They’ll boost your skills, allowing you to fight better, jump higher and run faster than any other human. But it has a darker side too. You’ll have to find out for yourself, should you manage to survive long enough.

Until then, we’re going to keep showing you more elements of the world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human, with parkour and combat hints coming soon. If you still think it’s only a matter of time before you turn, why not get an early glimpse at what you might become? Answer the questions at dyinglightgame.com/whichmonster and we’ll tell you what future awaits you in The City. Will you stay human?

The Tomorrow War review: Chris Pratt in B-movie Interstellar with A Quiet Place monsters

But the best thing about The Tomorrow War is the intense action sequences with these aliens called White Stripes.

The other-worldly monsters are like huge Siberian tigers with extra limbs with all the freakiness of the creatures in A Quiet Place.

Some of the CGI may be a bit ropey for a big blockbuster, but turning off your brain to watch Pratt and his team of conscripted civilians take on these beasts is thoroughly entertaining.

In fact, we get a bit more of this with his grumpy father, played by JK Simmons, in the film’s second half.

Love and Monsters ending explained: What happens to Dylan O'Brien's Joel?

He is later rescued again, this time by survival experts, who teach Joel a thing or two to help him survive his journey to find Aimee.

Boy helps him to become even greater than he once thought, as when his canine companion is trapped by a monster, Joel must use these survival techniques to save him.

Eventually, after getting himself into some difficult situations, he finds Aimee, who is unknowingly being infiltrated by an evil colony, which uses a monster as a predator to take supplies and land from other survivors.

Joel realises this but before he can warn Aimee, is caught by Cap (Dan Ewing), though together he and Aimee save the colony, using new techniques to commune with monsters rather than beat them.

Godzilla vs Kong first reactions: ‘Best in series – Fast and Furious with giant monsters’

Legendary’s MonsterVerse has already seen two Godzilla solo movies and the 1970s set Kong: Skull Island. And now the two titans are set to clash in a remake of 1962 Japanese kaiju movie King Kong vs Godzilla. The first reactions are in and Godzilla vs Kong is being praised by LA-based critics who had the chance to see the movie in IMAX – here are some of the highlights.
Fandango
I’ve seen Godzilla vs Kong and it is grade-A awesome! The monster brawls are badass & beautiful — huge fights, all well designed & super gnarly. Solid story, strong cast, really good score. A true Midnight Monster Movie & my favourite of the four modern Godzilla/Kong movies.

NerdReactor
Godzilla vs Kong is breathtaking, out of this world, and easily the best in the series! The heart of the story is Kong, and the human story complements the monsters’ adventures, allowing them to shine. Just seeing the two iconic monsters battling each other is worth it alone.

ComicBook.com
I watched Godzilla vs Kong on a big IMAX screen and it was AWESOME. The movie is a blast. It’s like Fast & Furious but with giant monsters. It’s exactly what I wanted it to be. Giant fights and they’re just SO MUCH FUN to watch. It’s a big, ridiculous, awesome movie. Godzilla vs Kong spends a little more time with the human characters than I cared for but it never really tries too hard to take them or anything else too seriously. This is a good thing. It’s just a wild blowout with the Titans fighting. It’s great overall.

Godzilla vs Kong
Godzilla vs Kong is another solid MonsterVerse instalment. While more time could have been used to explore this franchise’s deeper mythology, if you’re chiefly looking forward to seeing Godzilla and King Kong collide in a fight for the ages, you won’t be disappointed!

Slash Film
Godzilla v. Kong: Way better than Godzilla: King of the Monsters. All of the human stuff is still bad, but the big monster action in this one should satisfy the people who are interested in a movie like this.

Beyond The Trailer’s Grace Randolph
I got to see Godzilla vs Kong Friday night! Hilariously, it seems like they’re in a bar fight. Gorgeous VFX and intricate world-building, but many more scenes with “puny hoomans” than I was expecting…

Godzilla vs Kong’s reviews will land on March 29 ahead of a simultaneous cinematic and HBO Max release in the US on March 31.

While UK fans can rent the movie at home from April 1. But since cinemas aren’t set to reopen in Britain until at least May 17, it’s unclear if the movie will release for the big screen too.

Here’s hoping as Godzilla vs Kong looks like it was meant to be seen in IMAX.

The new movie stars Alexander Skarsgård as Dr Nathan Lind, a Monarch geologist who works closely with Kong.

While Millie Bobby Brown returns as Madison Russell after featuring in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The official synopsis reads: “Legends collide in Godzilla vs Kong as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.

“Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.

“The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.”
