Dying Light 1 Gets Free Next-Gen Console Patch; Improves View Distance, Performance, and Resolution

Techland has announced on the official Dying Light website that the first Dying Light game has received a patch to improve the game’s performance and quality on next-gen consoles.

On Playstation 5, Dying Light is receiving a 25% increase in view distance, as well as 60 fps Performance mode with full HD resolution, a Balanced mode with targeted 60 fps and QHD resolution, and a High-Resolution mode with 30fps in 4k. There’s even an improved 30 FPS cap for those playing on the PS4 Pro. The next-gen PlayStation patch is already live.

The Xbox Upgrade is currently said to be coming soon, with Techland saying that players should stay tuned to hear about the new video modes coming to the Xbox.

If you’ve never played Dying Light and want to know whether to check it out with the new patch, check out our review of the Platinum Edition of the first game. We said about the game:

“Dying Light has found a new home and is worth returning to for both veteran fans and those touching down on Harran for the first time. Playing again made me excited for the sequel’s release and made me appreciate this title even more. This and more is what a port should do, so good luck and good night.”
