Dying Light 2 is one of the games that were showcased at E3 2018 and there was a playable demo as well. This is the second installment in the franchise and if you are interested in finding out if there will be optimizations and support for the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X then you have come to the right place.
Dying Light 2 lead designer Tymon Smektala talked about multiple aspects of the game and in regards to PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support, the following is what he had to say:
Of course, we expect to do this, and hope to do this. It’s too early to make any specific declarations at this point, because we still have to optimize the game. Of course, we understand the market — you have to support those consoles, because the companies behind them put a lot of emphasis on them.
The developers still have a year to tinker and tweak the game but the final result should be impressive as Smektala further went on to mention the following:
We should be able to do it quite easily, because we have new tech for Dying Light 2. Previous iterations of the game were made using our Chrome Engine, but we realized at the brink of 4K gaming we needed new technology to provide gamers with high fidelity visuals, so we created a new engine, called C-Engine, and it’s ready for whatever happens in gaming.
Only a few games manage to run at 4K 60 FPS and the majority of them are on the Xbox One X. The developer was asked whether or not they would be targeting 4K 60 FPS and the following is what they had to say in this regard:
The most important for us it the fluidity of movement, because it’s a parkour game. You really have to be immersed in how you move through the city, so 60fps is more important to us than 4K. But, we still have a year to optimize, and we have real wizards when it comes to optimization, so perhaps we’ll deliver both 4K and 60fps.
Dying Light 2 development seems to be going well but we will have to wait a bit longer to see what the final version of the game is like. The game will release for PC, Xbox and PS4 in 2019, no specific release date has been announced as of right now.
