Techland, the developer of open-world zombie survival horror Dying Light have confirmed that they are currently working on a next-gen patch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles.
Despite being busy with Dying Light 2, Techland are also working on some enhancements for the original Dying Light game from 2015. When asked about a next-gen update for the game, Techland confirmed that a true next-gen patch will be coming soon to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and presumably PC.
The devs did not share additional details about the patch but we expect to see improved frame rates, 4K resolution, some visual enhancements like better lighting and sharper textures.
"We're currently working on a next-gen patch for Dying Light 1 - more details coming in the future :)," the team announced via their official Twitter.
Sadly, we don't know when exactly could this patch drop but if we had to guess, we would say that Techland probably plan to release the next-gen update around Dying Light 2 release date, to attract players to their franchise just in time before the long-awaited sequel launches.
Dying Light already got some next-gen improvements on Xbox Series X|S consoles in the form of FPS Boost. The game is fully playable in 60 FPS but at 900p resolution which is not optimal but it's certainly better than nothing.
All in all, this is certainly great news for those who still play Dying Light regularly but also for players who always wanted to dive into this zombie-infested world.
