While developer Techland is focused on Dying Light 2 Stay Human, it hasn't forgotten the original Dying Light. A new update for the original entry in the series has been released that makes changes to the Hellraid, adding new  crystal consumables, weapon blueprints, and more. The Dieselpunk DLC, which adds new weapons and outfits has also released.

The update also improves the Xbox Series S version of the game adding a 60 FPS mode that runs the game in 936p. A patch in March originally only added a 60 FPS mode to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
