Dying Light 2 was released last week with positive reviews. However, as players got their hands on the game over the weekend it became clear that there are issues that need fixing. There were hints just prior to the release of the game that there could be issues. Before Dying Light 2 was officially released, developer Techland asked players not to play the game before the release date. This was in response to the game being sold early by some retailers. The developer urged players to wait for the day one patch as it contained “over a thousand fixes and improvements on all the platforms.”
While day one patches are common these days, urging players not to play the game without it is a little concerning. Despite the worries, the game’s performance on next-gen consoles has been mostly trouble-free. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for last-gen systems. The biggest issue that seemed to be making the rounds on social media for next-gen consoles was some screen flickering on the PS5 version of the game. Thankfully, that is being fixed in the next update. For the full list of fixes for PlayStation gamers, check out the image below.
Techland also released improvement pictures for Xbox and PC players. Check those out below.
Techland says it will be implementing the fixes on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC “by the middle of next week at the latest.” Although it is encouraging to see Techland getting the fixes out so quickly, it isn’t clear which consoles the fixes are for. The company does specify some of the issues, such as the screen flickering on PS5. However, it isn’t clear if these fixes are aimed at last-gen and next-gen systems equally or if some of the issues being fixed are found exclusively on last-gen. Hopefully, Techland will be able to make the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game better with these fixes.
