Techland has announced that Dying Light 2: Stay Human‘s planned cross-platform and cross-gen co-op won’t be available at launch.

Though the game will be playable in co-op from almost start to finish (except the prologue) – you’ll only be able to play with friends who own the same type of console, for now. PC players will be able to play between Steam and the Epic Game Store with no problems, however, and Techland will be adding more cross platform at some point very soon. That’s in addition to the five years of content already promised for the game.

As previously revealed, all players will get to keep any items they gain playing Dying Light 2 in co-op, as well as their player progression. Meanwhile, as for the game world, story decisions are voted on by all players. However, any final decision is made by the host of the session.

Elsewhere, Techland’s also confirmed PlayStation 4 owners will be eligible for a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version. Over on Xbox, the game will use the Smart Delivery system between Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S too. This means both formats will allow upgrades from previous to current gen for no extra cost.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human arrives February 4 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 & PC. The game was set to arrive on Nintendo Switch on the same day, but has since been delayed.
