Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s release early next year is creeping ever closer, and every month that passes, we get more details about the game through developer Techland’s Dying 2 Know video series. In today’s episode, we get a closer look at parts of The City players will traverse, and a peek at recording the score at Abby Road Studios. But Techland left one surprise at the end of the video, introducing an important new character in Dying Light 2.
Lawan is that new character played by the one and only Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, Daredevil, Sin City). Dawson describes Lawan as “a warrior of sorts. A very tough woman who is fighting her past and looking to seek revenge on the people who wronged her.”
Piotr Mostowski, a writer on the game, goes into a little more detail on Lawan. He says she’s a character important to the plot, but the team wanted her to be more than that. Mostowski says Techland wants Lawan to be “a real person. With her own goals, own motivations, and her own opinions as well.” Depending on how your character interacts with Lawan will affect whether she can become your best friend, mortal enemy, or anywhere in between.
