PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are still hard to come by for many gamers, which is why most stick with outdated consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Fortunately, many companies are still releasing newer games on the older generation of hardware. Techland will release Dying Light 2 on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
Techland released a video showing what Dying Light 2 will look like on PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One. The video is intended to reassure fans that the game will still look and play just fine on older consoles. The video shows footage from various points in the game, but highlights an early parkour scene. The video compares and contrasts the parkour scene with the base PS4 and base Xbox One.
Based on the images, the game still looks great. The characters and environments don’t have the same detail as on newer consoles, but the in-game models and movement are still impressive.
The Dying Light Twitter claims that the footage used in the video comes directly from the consoles. One fan pointed out that the Xbox One footage didn’t show many zombies, suggesting that Techland isn’t sure how the game will run with multiple enemies. However, the Twitter account assures the fan that this will not be the case. The Xbox One footage showed plenty of humans on screen, which the Twitter account says are as resourceful as zombies.
It’s okay to be skeptical about Techland, and we won’t know for sure how well the game runs on previous-gen consoles until we get our hands on it. Dying Light 2 will be released on February 4 on most consoles and PC.
