Four player co-op is back in Dying Light, but because of the drastic differences between the original and the sequel, one player will have to host.

Dying Light 2 was revealed at Microsoft’s E3 show, and there are some big changes afoot for the sequel, namely the new choice-based mechanics that will shape your in-game world.

With the consequences of your decisions playing out in your game, players will have to host sessions if they want to buddy up for some co-op action.

“The choices and the narrative and the consequences you have in your own game are really huge and your friends could have chosen differently,” said producer, Malgorzata Mitrega, in an interview with PCGamesN.

“So in Dying Light 2 co-operation mode will have a host.”

Player progression will be retained, but you may not be able to use certain weapons if your path has diverged from the host player, but Mitrega says it’s “too soon to judge,” as it’s still all being figured out.

“[It’s] important to still make it fun but not to spoil the fun,” she added.

The release date for Dying Light 2 hasn’t been confirmed, but the title will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One next year.
