Dying Light Next Gen

As Dying Light 2 comes and goes in an absolutely stacked February, the first game is still getting an update! That's right, developer Techland promised a next-gen upgrade for Dying Light months ago, and it's almost here.

It must be close because today, March 8th, the PlayStation 5 version has launched. It includes three modes, much like the sequel. There's performance mode at 1080p/60fps, balanced mode targeting 60fps at 1440p and quality mode, running at 4K/30fps.

We'd expect the Xbox Series X version to be broadly similar, as was the case with both versions of Dying Light 2. The Xbox update is "coming soon", with no further detail on its release.

Dying Light Upgrade

As for Xbox Series S, we'll have to wait and see. Dying Light 2 didn't manage 60fps on Microsoft's digital console, and the Series S couldn't handle FPS Boost for Dying Light either. Oddly enough the PlayStation launch includes a small update for the PS4 Pro, so we'd expect something similar for Xbox One X too.

Will you be dipping back into Dying Light when it launches on next-gen? Let us know in the comments.
