In addition to Dying Light 2: Stay Human, Techland has also shown us a sneak peek of the four-player co-op gameplay in the latest, sixth installment of Dying 2 Know.
The Polish company has a much more down-to-earth mentality than their counterparts at CD Projekt RED, who, in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, showed us in a very pared-down and thus reality-blurring way how one of the negative surprises of 2020 ran on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (and their base versions). Let’s hope that the upcoming PlayStation 5/Xbox Series port will finally bring the story set in Night City up to a reasonable standard…
How does the cooperative gameplay work? Well, up to four people can sit together, and it’s pretty player-friendly that everyone can keep their items and progression from the round, so that not only the host benefits. The gameplay can be seen between 2:58 and 4:40. And the PlayStation 4, Xbox One version looks quite fair. There’s a degradation in lighting, and we can expect a reduction in resolution, but there’s not a massive difference in the essential assets. There shouldn’t be a significant problem as long as we don’t get 10-15 FPS on the base 2013 consoles. Look for details between 6:04 and 7:15 in the video.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human is already making unstoppable progress towards the finish line. Requiring up to 500 hours to complete (seriously, we recently reported that the Poles say that’s how long it takes to reach 100% completion…), the game is just weeks away from release. The delays (there have been several…) have also been due to the quality of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, and perhaps we won’t have a negative experience waiting for us.
The release date is February 4 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch will also get it, but not natively: instead of running the game locally, we’ll have to prepare for a cloud version on Nintendo’s successful hybrid platform.
