Like a zombie apocalypse, you gotta always be ready.
A lot of attention is on Techland’s next title, the open world zombie game, Dying Light 2. Lots of big promises are being made, from the branching paths said to equate to multiple games worth of content to the game’s updated engine showing impressive tech. All of which is t say, they’ve moved on from the original 2015 game, Dying Light- or so we thought. The console versions of that game just got an unannounced update.
Dying Light launched to solid reviews and ended up selling very well. It also got many updates, including a huge expansion that coupled with a massive visual overhaul of the game. And today, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game got an unexpected new update too. There was no acknowledgement of it by the dev team, nor any patch notes, so what’s in it is unknown. There was a very minor update to the PC version May 21st, which added some minor fixes relating to Korean and Chinese language icons and some bug and stability fixes. It’s possible this is the console version of that, but it’s uncertain at this time.
Dying Light is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Dying Light 2 is set to launch some time this year on the same platforms.
