Developer Techland has today unveiled the performance of its expected successor Dying Light 2 on what it has called 'old gen' hardware. The video sequence highlights the game running on the PS4 and Xbox One family of 30 fps consoles.
As you will see, the game runs fairly smoothly despite the obvious setbacks in performance by not being able to run at 60 fps. There is some motion blur that helps smooth things out and make it appear more cinematic, though its presence will not be appreciated by those who do not like the effect of the effect on the overall clarity of the screen. You can be a judge yourself:
The first Dying Light, released back in 2015, mixes floating first-person runs and shots with a post-apocalyptic zombie-infested open world. Hunting for supplies, fending off the mixed threat and completing quests after a motley crew of survivors is the order of the day. It was also well received by both critics and fans, and even had some pretty cool DLC support as well.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human, published by Techlandwill be launched on February 4, 2022 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S, followed by the release of the cloud version on the Nintendo Switch in 2022.
Techland recently promised five years of DLC content following the launch of Dying Light 2.
