Dying Light 2 is just a couple of days away from release PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The team at Techland have certainly earned themselves a breather, though a lot of work has been done to the ambitious zombie survival sequel since going gold.

The team have outlined a Dying 2 Light day 1 patch that includes numerous fixes. One last bug sweep before players finally get to experience the game for themselves.

We’re enjoying our time with Dying Light 2 though it’s perhaps not as revolutionary as some overhyped fans may have been led to believe. Here’s what we said in our review:

“Dying Light 2 expands and refines a formula Techland has been peddling since its breakout success with Dead Island. This sequel learns a lot from modern open world video games, its massive, zombie-infested sandbox rarely feeling empty, especially as you breeze through city blocks with a Mirror’s Edge-like finesse. However, Dying Light 2 inherits the same problems – a dull story, tiresome combat, and character progression that’s a tad too sluggish.”
