Dying Light and Dying Light 2 developer Techland has made a surprise announcement that the original game is receiving a next-gen update. It’s surprising because the developer just released Dying Light 2 last month and there’s still quite a bit of work to do on that game in order to iron out the bugs and glitches that plague it. Nevertheless, fans of the original game can rejoice. The next-gen update will provide 60 FPS in performance and balanced modes as well as an enhanced quality mode with 4K. Check out the full statement from Techland below.

Despite the fact that Dying Light 2 players are waiting for updates in that game, this is a good sign for those players too. Techland promised five years of support for Dying Light 2. The original game is seven years old at this point so the new update bodes well for Techland keeping its Dying Light 2 post-launch support promise. It’s just unfortunate that the best version of Dying Light 2 may not be available for another year or two.
The next-gen update for Dying Light is available now on PlayStation consoles. Xbox owners of the game will need to wait a little bit longer to get the update on their consoles.
