Dying Light 2’s latest patch is now available for consoles

After releasing for PC earlier this week, the latest Dying Light 2 patch has hit PlayStation and Xbox consoles. As promised, Techland has released the latest patch for consoles, and like the PC version, it eliminates deathloops, fixes blocks in multiple quests, and solved some problems with safe zones. It also features fixes for co-op, nightrunner tools, makes combat improvements, adds new ragdoll behavior, and more. The update also fixes issues with the Brutality Pack, makes technical improvements, balance tweaks, it improves the outro and final boss fight, and it touches up the UI/UX. For Xbox specifically, the patch improves…

Dying Light 2 update improves DLSS, stops replicating corpses

Dying Light 2 is quite the hardware fiend, hence why enabling DLSS – provided your GPU supports it – is so useful for keeping frame rates up. Sadly, in both the review build I tested and at launch, even the highest quality DLSS setting looked uncharacteristically lower-res. It was still worth using, especially if you fancied clambering over Villedor’s rooftops at 4K or with ray tracing effects, but there was a nagging sense that DLSS can do better. And now it can, for Dying Light 2’s 1.04 update is live, and sharpens Nvidia’s upscaling tech to close that gap between…

Dying Light 2 has enjoyed a pretty good launch so far. Yes, there have been some performance issues and technical glitches in the game, but – so far – thanks to a Day One patch that accompanied the game’s release at the start of the month, we’ve already seen over 1,000 or so fixes…

Dying Light 2 team says fixing disconnects in co-op is one of its main priorities

Players are reporting other issues too. Techland is aware of disconnection issues plaguing Dying Light 2 co-op, and a fix for it is on “the top of the list.” According to the studio, it is also working on problems with redeeming awards, codes, and other in-game content, including Twitch Drops from TechlandGG. There seems to be other issues with the game though, and we expect Techland will also address those in time. Looking through the Dying Light subreddit, players are noting problems with audio bugs on PC, and there are some bugs causing issues with progressing through the story. Other…

Dying Light 2 PC performance and the best settings to use

Dying Light 2 is out and hoo boy, is it a tough nut to crack. Not in the hours to completion sense, or even difficulty in general – Matthew’s review found a rather unthreatening strain of undead – but in how tricky it is to get running smoothly on PC. That goes double if you want to dolly up this post-apocalypse with some shiny ray tracing features, so even if you’ve got a rig that can breeze through most games, I’d recommend reading on for a guide to Dying Light 2’s best settings.

Well, maybe hold the celebrations. Things are about to get expensive. It’s a big month for games. 2022 continues on its campaign of trying to bankrupt us all, unabated, and even if you’ve…

Techland will support Dying Light 2 for at least 5 years post release

Techland plans to support Dying Light 2 for a long time after its initial drop on February 4. According to the developer, the plan is to expand the world for at least five years post launch with new stories, locations, in-game events and more. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who played the first Dying Light.

Game length does matter, but it’s right to be skeptical about grand boasts

Dying Light 2 has received some flack over its 500 hours to complete claim, but that’s because we’ve become weary of bloat. Over the weekend, the internet was once again up in arms over something video game related. Taking a break from rightfully dunking on (but perhaps inadvertently promoting) NFT nonsense, it was the turn of Dying Light 2 to feel the flames of outrage. The game’s social account put out a statement that the zombie survival parkour open-world sequel would take 500 hours (about 3 weeks) to complete. Boom. That is an outrage. There has now long been a…

Don’t worry, you can finish Dying Light 2’s main story in 20 hours

Over the weekend, Dying Light 2 developers Techland boasted that the open-world zombie-mashing parkour-o-shooter would take “500 hours to complete the game“. This turned out not to be the exciting selling point they expected. Many found this claim exhausting because oh my god 500 hours is over 20 days, what do you think we do with our lives, and how much of that is busywork? After initially backtracking to clarify that 500 hours is how long it’d take to do absolutely everything, Techland have now explained that you can finish the game’s main story in 20 hours, or 80 if…

Dying Light 2: 5 things you need to know about Techland’s massive open world sequel

To celebrate the impending launch of ​​Dying Light 2, we’ve collected some vital information about Techland’s hotly anticipated open world epic. It’s been nearly seven years since Dying Light launched on the last generation of consoles, and in that time, this fledgling franchise has already made one hell of a name for itself. Despite stumbling out the gates at launch, the first game has gone on to be something of a cult classic – one that’s still supported by its developers to this day. From that well-supported, deeply refined base comes Dying Light 2 – a new game set in…

Dying Light 2 will take 500 hours to “fully complete”, devs say

Techland have achieved something incredible. With a single Dying Light 2 marketing Tweet, they caused the greatest mass exhalation seen, perhaps, ever. Thousands of adults were informed that to “fully complete Dying 2: Stay Human, you’ll need at least 500 hours” and collectively sighed at their desks, heads in hands. Even some hurried backtracking from Techland’s marketing team couldn’t save us from exhaustion. Read more

How Dying Light 2 fixes stealth, empowers players, and cribs off The Last of Us II

Slipping into a military-controlled ‘dark zone’ to plunder some high-end electrical equipment sounded like an easy job. You could be in and out in minutes, in theory, slinking through the locked-down multi-storey car park with a nice sequence of slides and skids to grab your treasure before vaulting a fence and scampering off. But there’s a problem: the lights are out, down in these concrete depths. The zombies are strong here. Special banshee-like screechers are primed to alert their undead brethren to the presence of any would-be intruders, prompting an unending wave of decaying meat to fling itself at you,…
