Rosemary Audio Story Expands the World of Dying Light 2 With Scary Tale

Gather around the campfire and hear the tale of Rosemary, one of many urban legends in the world of Dying Light 2.

Techland is putting forth a lot of effort to make the world of Dying Light 2 feel alive amongst the droves of infected waiting to rip players apart at every turn. There may be more human enemies this time around, sure, and sidequests might be more important to the overall narrative, but the developers are also working hard on the game's worldbuilding in other ways. 

The first Dying Light 2 Audio Story, called Rosemary, is one such way. The 10-minute tale, which you can listen to on YouTube or down below, features voice actors Paul Peterman, Joanna Farell, and Jerry Widuch.

Just in time for the spooky season, Rosemary is plenty creepy, with special mention going to the audio effects and Peterman's performance as narrator, which in no small way reminds of peak B-Horror Gary Busey in the best possible ways. 

The tale itself is, unsurprisingly, about a girl named Rosemary. It's one of those stories you tell around the campfire, and Techland said it is one of the many urban legends in the Dying Light 2 universe. 

There are many such stories in the post-apocalyptic world of Dying Light 2, and the difficulties of surviving in a city full of dangers are an endless source of inspiration.
By sharing them with each other, citizens of The City can grow closer, allowing for a little respite while they rebuild fragile social bounds. These stories teach how to live and avoid trouble, and sometimes simply serve to drown out the sounds of the night. From a distance, players can hear monsters emerging from their lairs, and every rustle and step behind the wall portends danger.
There will be more urban legends and tall tales shared through more Audio Stories. Techland didn't specify how many more or when they might arrive, so keep your eyes ears open. Dying Light 2 releases on December 7 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Series X|S. Recent gameplay footage gives fans the best look at the action yet.
