After many delays, Dying Light 2 will come at last February 4th. If you haven’t had a chance to buy one yet , developer Techland is making the easy decision to buy the game now or later. In a message discovered by , the studio shared this week that it will offer free current-generation upgrades to those who purchase Dying Light 2 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
That means you’ll have a chance to play the game with improved graphics at a later date. Like many recent PS5 and Xbox Series X/S releases, Dying Light 2 will ship with multiple rendering modes thus allowing you to configure the game to prioritize graphics fidelity or better performance.
If you want the best possible graphics, you can choose between separate “Quality” and “Resolution” modes. As you can tell from the name, the latter will try to render the game in 4K. Less obvious is the Quality mode, which adds raytracing to the experience. And if all you want is a smooth frame rate, the included “Performance” mode shows up. Dying Light 2 at 60 fps or so. You can see the different modes of operation in the video above.
The news comes the same week Techland announced the cloud version of Dying Light 2 for Switch would be delayed up to half a year. The studio said it has decided to push back the release to ensure it can provide the best possible experience for Nintendo fans.
