Techland Shows Off Dying Light 2 Graphics Comparison and Co-Op Play

The latest Dying Light 2 trailer and inside info showcase how the game looks on almost every platform.

Techland showed off a brief Dying Light 2 graphics comparison in the final episode of Dying 2 Know, alongside a short glimpse at Dying Light 2 co-op play.

The Dying Light 2 comparison shows the game running on PlayStation 4, Xbox One X, PlayStation 5, and then Xbox Series X, and the results are pretty much what you’d expect. Dying Light 2 on PS4 looks solid and seems to run smoothly, and the most notable part of it is just how much more colorful Dying Light 2 looks in general compared to its 50 shades of brown predecessor. Those colors and textures shine just a bit more on Xbox One X.

PlayStation 5 gives them an even bigger boost with more detail and polish, as you’d expect. However, it looks like Dying Light 2 continues the trend of third-party titles looking just a bit better on the Xbox Series X version, where everything looks slightly crisper.

The preview didn’t show Dying Light 2 running via cloud on Nintendo Switch.

If you and your friends are playing Dying Light 2 on the same platform, you can join up for some co-op play as well. The glimpse Techland showed was brief but involved strategically fanning your party members out to deal with hordes and stay alive longer.

Dying Light 2 launches February 4 on PC via Steam, PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch via the cloud. If you can't wait to see more of it until then, check out the launch trailer below.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
