This could be a fact or speculation thread. First, I wonder if the incident in Harran is the same one as the one in Dead Island, meaning the same virus, zombies seem to be the same types and could be no just cause of same developer but because they share the same universe. Secondly, this is for the devs (or writers), is the "thing" that causes the zombies a virus or a bacteria? See this tweet: https://twitter.com/DyingLightGame/status/562762655489073156 On the picture those are bacteria growing, gram positive bacillus to be more precise.
Sohisohi posted a topic in General DiscussionsHopefully I'm not asking a question that has already been asked. But, early on, like when Dying Light was first announced. Just a few days later there was an interview done with one of your guys, (Can't remember if it was an article or video interview, its been a while), who talked about the teams plans for the game. Basically, he said that Dying Light WAS a Dead Island game, but the reason for the name chance was because these would be new character, new locations, and new game mechanics. The way I interpreted that statement, "We changed the name to let our fans know that we are taking the Dead Island series in a new direction. By changing the name we also let our fans know that they should be expecting something different/new and they should not expect the same RPG style Co-op zombie slasher they've become accustomed to." After seeing that interview, I was left with the impression that Dying Light would be Dead Island 2, or at least Dying Light would be fallowing the Dead Island lore which was first set in Dead Island and expanded on Dead Island: Riptide, but gameplay wise this one would be much different. But now, I see that you guys are making an actually Dead Island 2, title and all. This has left me a bit confused, which is why I ask this: Will Dying Light be taking place in the Dead Island universe? When the game was first announced everything I was hearing about it suggested that this game was going to be a spin-off or sequel to Dead Island, just with different gameplay, characters, and a story that wasn't just about escaping. So ya, will Dying Light be in some way tied to Dead Island's lore or is this a whole new game with brand new lore? I looked over all the content you published, and although you guys stated you did not want Dying Light to just be Dead Island 2 (i.e. RPG style zombie slasher), you never explicitly stated that Dying Light will not tie into the established Dead Island lore. If you can, please carify ^.^
