Dying Light 2 Last-Gen Versions to be Shown This Month

Dying Light 2 Last-Gen Versions to be Shown This Month - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 02 January 2022 / 2,485 Views

Techland Community Manager Uncy via Twitter revealed the developer plans to showcase gameplay of the last-generation version of Dying Light 2 Stay Human later this month.

"A lot of people were asking me on Discord, so I think it's only fair to also say it here," Uncy said. "We're planning to show old-gen gameplay as we know how important it is for our players. I cannot share any dates yet, you can expect it to be shown in January."

The developer also revealed there are more than 500 unique items that can be equipped in the game.

The game in November went gold, which means principal development for the game is complete and what is left is to fix bugs that might be discovered. 

Dying Light 2 Stay Human will launch for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 4, 2022.

I'm sure it will look as good as Far Cry 6 on PS4.

But it's some kind of cloud game thing right? Thats not as interesting as a native port.

Yes, but I was reffering to the last sentence of the article, listing the platforms

Maybe you should've put "cloud" in your post because the majority of switch owners don't bother with cloud gaming

Do you have actual data for that ?

Mate just put in cloud gaming so people don't get confused when if they want to pre order at retailers. And if cloud gaming is really popular on switch we would've heard about it. It's why the selection of games is sparse at the moment because the majority just don't care about cloud gaming

No, most of the cloud-based games we have so far are very specific:

  • 3rd person shooters
  • slow-paced/don't require quick reaction
  • saves everywhere and everytime
  • exist on PC

    Thus making them good candidates for cloud gaming.

    Dying Light 2 will be an exception, as it is 1st person view and fast-paced.

There's only 3 or 4 games outside Japan. Most countries are locked out of cloud gaming on switch. Om from Australia and we are locked out of cloud future on switch. There's a difference between cloud and native gaming that's why the article didn't mention switch launch but if you're going refer to it then put "cloud" in your post next time so there's no confusion

There is 5 games outside Japan, and Japan has only 2 more (Resident Evil 7 and Assasin's Creed Odyssey).

Wow 5 games! Seriously dude? How hard is it to put in cloud version in your post so there's no confusion? If the majority cares about cloud gaming on switch don't you think there's should be way more than 5 cloud games already? I'm pretty sure there's more than 5 3rd person or slow paved games on ps4 and xbox.

Since cloud gaming in the West is a thing since late october 2020, only new releases comes into the Switch through cloud. And it's not like there were huge amount of high budget games launched in 2021 that can't run on the Switch. So Hitman 3 launched in January 2021, A Plague Tale in July, The Forgotten City in September and the Guardians of Galaxy in October.
And cloud gaming starts to become a thing cause more and more games are anounced to be cloud based on the Switch (Dying Light 2 for eg, or A Plague Tale 2 so far).

5 games! That's much more than 3 or 4 I mentioned! We are talking about switch here. 100m sold so if the majority cares about cloud gaming don't you think we would hear about how well cloud games sold on switch already? Majority means above 50% that's at least 50m switch owners you think have tried cloud on switch? Cloud version pretty much can't be played portably and it is also locked out for most countries therefore the majority don't use or have accessed to cloud on switch. Again how much time does it take to put "cloud" in your post so people don't get confused and go out and pre order or buy it at retailers wasting their time.

I think you make a good suggestion that they add the word "cloud" to the article. But I think being argumentative/unnecessarily aggressive in arguing for it isn't a good look.

It's OK for you to suggest it, and it's OK for them to take (or not take) your suggestion.

Oh okay so your point was "why didn't you add +cloud+ on your original comment", I get it, you should've started with that instead of "it isn't available in Australia, thus cloud games are irrelevant" kind of stuff that nobody cares about.

Pinkie_pie SKMBlake (on 04 January 2022)

If you read my 1st comment again, first thing I said was put "cloud" in your post so people don't get confused. You totally ignored that until your last post. And I never said nobody cares or cloud is irrelevant on switch. I said "majority"

  • 0
SKMBlake Pinkie_pie (on 04 January 2022)

You said "put cloud cause majoritiy doesn't care", so obviously the focus was on the latter

  • 0
Pinkie_pie SKMBlake (on 04 January 2022)

Yes the majority doesn't care. The publishers know its not popular on switch its why there's only only 5 cloud games. Many countries are locked out of cloud gaming on switch so it would be much appreciated if you were more specific.

SKMBlake Pinkie_pie (on 04 January 2022)

I've already explained the specifics making that we got only 5 cloud games in a year. How many AAA multiplat single player third person shooters released in 2021 ? You could've add Sclarnet Nexus and eventually RE Village (which isn't 3rd person tho) but that's it.

Pinkie_pie SKMBlake (on 04 January 2022)

Doesn't have to be 2021 titles. They could release any popular 3rd person game last gen or even the ones from ps3 and xbox 360 but most publishers dont even bother. A plague tale and control were released in 2019. I already pointed out why I think cloud isn't popular on switch. You also don't have any data if cloud is doing well on switch. I'm just going get more info elsewhere when I see you post switch launch titles.
