Dying Light 2 looks set to be one of the biggest releases of 2022 as it hits the gaming platforms this February in US and Europe. The game is scheduled to be available for play on PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Nintendo Switch owners, on the other hand, are in for some bad news. Another one of February’s most notable release, Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, developer Square Enix and Dying Light’s developer Techland both have shared in their respective announcements on Twitter that Switch versions of the games are subject to set backs and will have a delayed release from other competing platforms.
The game had previously been delayed multiple times from its initial release date back in spring 2020 due to Covid-19. Although no other reason has been shared other than needing more time to “bring it to the level we envision”. Nevertheless, despite being a victim of dramatic early setbacks like high profile staff departures and mismanagement reports, Dying Light 2: Stay Human will finally arrive on the 4th of February.
Britain’s leading journalism website Eurogamer shares that Dying Light 2 has been promised to be released on the portable Nintendo Switch console “within six months from the original date” through a cloud streaming agent.
Dying Light 2 on ‘old gen’ family of consoles showcased in new trailer
In a new teaser, Techland has just published a Youtube video of the game running on what it has dubbed ‘old gen’ PS4. The five minute long video clip shows off small segments of gameplay that round up gracefully with a full uncut parkour sequence. The smooth ending does a great job of getting the fans curious about its performance on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, especially since the whole Cyberpunk 2077 saga has left people skeptical. Apparently, this is achieved by some amount of motion blur which works to make things appear more cinematic. Output of cross generation games does call for some concern based on history. However, despite the lower resolution and 30 frames per second rendering speed, the video seems promising. Be the judge yourself by watching the trailer on their official Youtube channel Dying Light.
It has been a long wait for fans of the original game, Dying Light, which came out in 2015. The classified horror video game was played in first person as Kyle Crane, an undercover agent depending on his swift parkour skills and weapon based combat to survive in a zombie infested Middle Eastern city. The sequel improves on its predecessor with its open world style, supporting a bigger cityscape and better role playing elements. It takes place 20 years after Dying Light, featuring a more gripping storyline with pilgrim Aiden Caldwell fighting for survival of the human settlements.
Dying Light 2 is currently available for pre-order on STEAM.
