Game news Dying Light 2: future buyers of PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will be delighted with this announcement!
If there’s one thing we won’t forget, it’s that the release of Dying Light 2: Stay Human is getting closer and closer. For several weeks now, the Techland teams have been giving us interesting information about their next creation. Recently, very specific information was communicated and the least we can say is that it is likely to make PS4 and Xbox One players smile.
Friday, February 4, will be the big day for the Techland teams: Dying Light 2 will finally see the light of day after a very long development. If it comes out a little more than seven years after its eldest, Dying Light 2 indeed intends to surpass it in every respect: if you are curious, you can take a look at this summary article which covers all the essential points to remember about Techland’s latest creation. For its part, the studio does not skimp on communication as their game is omnipresent in the news!
Not so long ago, Dying Light 2 took the time to immerse us a little more in the heart of its history, in particular by taking the time to detail the meaning behind the quest of Aiden Caldwell, the hero of the game. As generous as his script, the developers went one step further by using the PlayStation 5 to give us a glimpse of the different performance and resolution modes offered by the game.
Not the same mistakes as Horizon Forbidden West?
Currently, the transition between the new console generation (PS5, Xbox Series X|S) and the old one (PS4, Xbox One) has not yet been fully implemented, in particular due to the production difficulties encountered by the two manufacturers, which does not allow the installation of a new fleet of consoles as large as the one already in place. This is why, while waiting to obtain one of the new state-of-the-art consoles or by simple economic choice, players very often acquire a PS4 and Xbox One version of their game in order to benefit, subsequently , an upgrade.
In the past, the subject was hot, both on the criterion of acquisition and that of the supplement to be paid, which is why the developers of Techland wanted to put, from now on, the points on the “i” : yes, players who have in their possession a PS4 or Xbox One version of the game will be entitled to a free upgrade to the recent consoles!
On the Sony side, PS4 or PS4 Pro owners will be able to assert their version of the game and will be eligible for a free upgrade. For Microsoft, it’s the SmartDelivery service of the Redmond firm which will be in charge of updating the copy: thus, players will get a copy for Xbox Series X|S consoles for free!
However, where the shoe pinches, is that Techland is unable, at least at the time of the launch of Dying Light 2: Stay Human, to provide a cross-platform and cross-generation compatible cooperative experience. PC players can breathe since cross-play will be available between Steam and Epic Games Store users. If the news is a little hard to swallow, we bet that these features will be at the heart future works and additions from the studio around the game!
