Dying Light 2

After a lot of anticipation and waiting from fans, Techland has finally revealed a great deal of details on Dying Light 2: Stay Human. We discovered a lot of information about the work during the live broadcast dedicated to it, but it seems that much more is coming out in the last few hours. Specifically, Techland gave some clarifications regarding the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S versions of Dying Light 2.

The first important information that comes out is that the editions for PS4 and Xbox One will have no problems because , according to the developers, it has been their priority for many years now. In addition, all those who purchase the PS4 and Xbox One version will be able to get the update for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S for free. While on Xbox platforms this was given for certain thanks to the confirmation of the presence of smart delivery, Techland has revealed that the same is also true for the PlayStation consoles.

However, the next-gen version of Dying Light 2 will provide well 3 different graphics modes: the quality mode will have a more performing ray tracing, the performance mode will bring the title to 60 fps, and finally there will be a mode to play in 4K. In short, although Techland wanted to reassure the owners of PS4 and Xbox One, it is also good to note that it has also concentrated a lot on optimizing its game on the next generation platforms.

Last detail, but not least , is the absence of dubbing in Italian: we will have to be content with playing Dying Light 2 with the voices in English and subtitles in Italian. This is certainly unimportant for some players, but essential for others. However, we believe that the absence of dubbing in our language will not weigh much on the general enjoyment of Dying Light 2 which, we recall, will be released on 7 December 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC.

We remind you that you can pre-order Dying Light 2 on Amazon in PS4, Xbox One and PC versions.
