Dying Light 2 Crossplay
Dying Light 2: Stay Human is an open world zombie survival game that allows players play in coop with friends. But not everyone plays on the same platform. Here we answer questions about Dying Light 2 Crossplay. It is very likely that one will have friends who might buy the game somewhere else. Nowadays, Crossplay is pretty much a guarantee for most modern games. Games such as Apex, Call of Duty, Destiny 2,Dead by Daylight, Halo Infinite and many more.
Even on release, plenty of games in the zombie genre such as in Back4Blood already have Crossplay implemented to help make it easier for friends to play with each other. With this the expectation of Crossplay is reasonable with a big coop game like Dying Light 2.
Will Dying Light 2 Have Cross Platform Play?
Dying Light 2 will not have cross-play at launch. In an interview for Twitch Gaming, Techland ‘s Tymon Smektala confirmed that the feature will not be available at the game’s launch on February 04, 2022. Players who wish to play with friends must coordinate to do so in the same platform.
Cross platform play is a term used to represent the ability to make different platforms. Dying light 2 is releasing across multiple platforms with PS4,PS5,Xbox one, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC.
There are no announcements for Crossplay yet in the future of the game. Players can only hope that this feature does get implemented. The original Dying Light did not feature cross-platform play so there is a chance that we might not see Crossplay unless there is a huge demand for it.
Will Dying Light 2 Be Cross Generation?
Dying Light 2 will be releasing at the cross-sections of a generational jump in gaming consoles. And along with the console shortages. There has been an expectation that players from PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will be at least be able to play with other players from the previous generations. Sadly Dying Light 2 will not be cross generation. This means that if you have a friend on PS4 and you’re playing the game on PS5, you will not be able to play together. You can only coop with those who are from the same generation.
But unlike Crossplay, Techland has announced their plans to implement cross generation play sometime in the future. So we can at least be assured that Techland is doing something about it. Still, you will be able to coop with your friends provided that you’re on the same platform and generation for now.
The fact that the game has no Crossplay implementation at the beginning is rather disappointing. Cross-platform play is already such an expected feature when it comes to multiplayer games like these that we might automatically expect it when buying the game. Dying Light not having it is disappointing. But at least the aspect of Cross generation play will be implemented later. With so many games out there that already feature Crossplay, we do hope that Techland can see the benefit in uniting its player base.
