Dying Light 2 update for PS5, PS4, Xbox and PC set to arrive soon

Dying Light 2 has finally launched, but players have noticed a couple of performance issues and glitches in the game. Techland says they'll be addressed soon.

Dying Light 2 has enjoyed a pretty good launch so far. Yes, there have been some performance issues and technical glitches in the game, but – so far – thanks to a Day One patch that accompanied the game's release at the start of the month, we've already seen over 1,000 or so fixes and tweaks in the final version of the game.

The development team at Techland has already stated that fixing disconnects in co-op is one of its main priorities, but thanks to a set of new tweets over the weekend, we've seen what else the studio is working on as the post-launch period for the game continues.

The updates are broken by down by platform, and then broken down again into fixes that are ready for implementation, and the issues that the company is working on. For clarity here, I've got two main sections ('Ready for Implementation' and 'We Are Working On' which I'll break down into console and PC, too.

You can check out the list below. In the meantime, if you're playing through the game without too many issues arising from the likes of story-blocking bugs or key-binding issues on PC, here's 16 tips to help get you going in-game and our massive Dying Light 2 guide to Villedor. You may also want to check out what critics think of the game, and, of course our very own Dying Light 2 review.
