As the launch of Dying Light 2 Stay Human, which will be released on February 4, Techland is giving more and more information about its long-awaited and ambitious first-person zombie survival title: it recently revealed its plans to feed the game with content over the next five years, something that also means that some functions will not be available at its premiere. Today the company itself has announced that the crossover cooperative play on consoles be one of them.
This means that players on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and Xbox One will not be able to play with each other, regardless of which console they have. It will also not be possible to play cooperatively between two generations of the same company. that functionality will come later, although it has not yet been specified when. On PC, however, cross-play will be available from the day of its launch: Steam and Epic Games Store players will be able to share a game from February 4.
The cooperative mode Dying Light 2 Stay Human will allow us to play accompanied throughout the campaign, as reported by Techland itself today, from the prologue to the final mission. All people sharing the session will be able to keep progress and the items obtained for your personal game. As for decisions, a voting system will allow players to give their opinion on which option to choose, although it will be the host of the game who has the final word.
What I know will be available from day one will be the free upgrade to new generation version, which allow gamers to port their PS4 and Xbox One games to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S respectively. We already knew that this title would have Smart Delivery on Microsoft consoles, but today it has been confirmed that it will also have a free update gateway on Sony consoles.
