The developers of Dying Light 2 give some details about the upcoming game
As the release of Dying Light 2 Stay Human, due out on 4 February, Techland is releasing more and more information about its long-awaited and ambitious first-person zombie survival title. Recently revealed plans to feed the game with content over the next five years, which also means that some features will not be available when it is released. Today the company itself has announced that co-op cross-play on consoles will be one of them.
This means that PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and Xbox One players will not be able to play together, regardless of which console they own. It will also not be possible to play co-op between two generations of the same company. This feature will come at a later date, although it has not yet been specified when. On PC, on the other hand, cross-play will be available from launch day: Steam and Epic Games Store players will be able to share a game from 4 February.
The Dying Light 2 Stay Human co-op mode will allow us to play together throughout the entire campaign, as Techland itself reports today, from the prologue to the final mission. Everyone who shares the session will be able to continue progressing and items earned for their own personal game. On the decision side, a voting system will allow players to have their say on which option to choose, even if it will be the game host who will have the final say.
We know that the free upgrade to the next-gen versions will be available from day one, allowing players to transfer their PS4 and Xbox One games to PS5 and Xbox X/S Series, respectively. We already knew that this title would feature Smart Delivery on Microsoft’s consoles, but today it was confirmed that it will also feature free update pass-through on Sony’s consoles.
