Ahead of the launch of Dying Light 2: Stay Human, many fans would gladly replay the first chapter, perhaps with the excuse of a upgrade per PS5 e Xbox Series X | S. However, at the moment Techland is completely absorbed in the development of the sequel and other projects.
In an interview with MP1st, lead level designer Piotr Pawlaczyk explained that developers know that fans want an upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S but their efforts are currently focused on completing the work on Dying Light 2: Stay Human, as well as making other projects.
“We are currently focused on the launch of Dying Light 2 and other projects. I have nothing to announce about it right now, but we listen to our fans and know what they want,” says Pawlaczyk. Words that, however, do not exclude a priori an upgrade for Dying Light after the publication of the expected sequel.
On PS4 and Xbox One, the first chapter runs at 30 fps, with Xbox Series X being able to bring the Techland title to 60 fps thanks to the FPS Boost mode. Obviously an upgrade made ad hoc for next-gen consoles should give better results, perhaps integrating faster loading times, various grafts to the graphics sector or, in the case of PS5, support for Dualsense.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human will debut on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X and S, PS4 and Xbox One on November 7th. On console, Quality and Performance modes will be available which will improve visual impact or framerate.
