Techland has dropped a new next-gen patch for the original Dying Light on PlayStation 5 today & on Xbox consoles soon.
Not to be outdone by its newer, younger sibling, the patch enhances the first game in the zombie/parkour series. PlayStation 5 owners will now be able to select from one of three video modes. Performance offers 60FPS with full HD resolution. Balanced Mode targets 60FPS but with a QHD resolution, while Quality targets 30 FPS in 4K. The Xbox Series X will get the same upgrades, with their patch “coming soon”.
But it’s not just the newest consoles that benefit from this patch. According to the notes, PS4 Pro owners can now enjoy an improved 30FPS cap and the patch also introduces “new networking utilising the EOS solution”. Meanwhile the Xbox One will get the same upgrades as the Xbox One S, which includes a Performance mode targeting 30FPS in full HD. Finally, a High-Resolution mode targets 30FPS in Quad HD resolution.
Given that the original Dying Light released all the way back in 2015, it bodes well for Techland’s promise of at least five years of support for the sequel. If you’re yet to read our Dying Light 2 Stay Human verdict, you can correct that oversight here.
Console players! A next-gen patch has come to PlayStation, bringing quality improvements and enhancing your gameplay experience even more! Try out the new video modes and enjoy the increased view distance while parkouring through Harran!
