Cascadia: The Fortified City

By Liliannismo33


You live in one of the last walled cities in the world, named Cascadia. Ruled by an oppressive government which holds the city in an iron fist, only the rich and influential are permitted to leave and forage for their own resources. Now, though, you're given ample reason to seek and escape and fight for your freedom outside Cacadia's walls...

The Captured Queen of Brightohio

By yillalonk


A few months after the events of Villedor, Aiden together with Hakon managed to regroup with his fellow friend and mentor Spike. Together they embark on a journey in search of Spike's long lost love. Arriving in a tiny village called “Brightohio” they come in contact with the queen of the village in hope to find new information about Spikes love. Little do they know what adventure awaits Aiden. Fight with Aiden through multiple arenas and overcome obstacles to receive new equipment for the next stage, get stronger, and reach the tip of the iceberg!

Run Boy Run

Stronger modified harpoon

Aiden is on his way to look for his sister Mia and has started a journey. But this time, challenging obstacles stand in his way. From indoor and outdoor building complexes to open fields and natural landmarks, this map is a representation of the intro with a little creative imagination. Can you complete this level within the given time?

Prison Awaken 2

By lordkurt12

This custom prison map, designed for the contest, gives the player a challenging fifteen-round survival goal with missions involving breaking out of various cells, and power systems that affect functionality throughout the map. There's six floors to be unlocked via the power and a shop that will appear once every five rounds to let you shore up your arsenal, ready to dive back in to the survival efforts.

Road to Outside

By mlodyzioperek


The map is heavily story-driven. The current status of the map serves as an introduction to the story - a welcome to the world before the brutal reality that will follow. In upcoming quests, Aiden will wake up in an abandoned mine full of corpses. He will try to find a way out and reveal secrets behind the village. From that moment on, the peaceful, joyful forest will turn into a horror.

Jumping The Guns

Dying Light 2 is the second entry in the Dying Light franchise, putting players in a post-zombie-apocalypse with an emphasis on survival. It recently received a big update opening up content creation to its players, and to celebrate, Techland started up a competition on December 13th which has now been extended to January 27th. $50,000 is still up for grabs, in bunches of $5,000, for the winners of Techland's selection; meanwhile, the most subscribed entry on will win the Community Favourite award and a ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 Laptop, which is certainly nothing to sniff at. AMD's favourite will nab the third prize bracket, with a GPU [PowerColor 6800XT] and CPU [Ryzen 7 5800X3D] combo to supercharge your PC and prep for plenty more high-stakes Dying Light 2 action.
