The action-role-horror-survival game Dying Light 2 may have suffered a number of times since it was first announced at the E3 2018 conference, but if the world does not explode by then,
it will finally reach us next weekend, February 4th.
Because many games are still coming out for the previous generation of consoles and the new generation of consoles at the same time, there are quite a few players who have not yet purchased the game and are waiting for the moment when they will be able to get their hands on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X \ S to play smoothly and enjoy new graphics capabilities .
Now developer Techland is announcing that players with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles will be able to purchase Dying Light 2 and be upgraded to the next generation for free.
Like many games nowadays, the next generation version of Dying Light 2 will come with three different display modes: The first mode is Quality Mode which will allow you to play with Ray Tracing.
The second mode is Resolution Mode which will allow you to play in 4K resolution, and Performance Mode which will push the performance to 60 frames per second and beyond.
The developers update that the game will not include a Cross Play option at launch, and Xbox players will not be able to play with Sony or PC players and vice versa.
The only option that will be possible is just a co-op between the PC players, at least until Techaland releases an update to the game.

The free upgrade is not a given.
Knowing that a free upgrade for Dying Light 2 for next-generation consoles is a welcome announcement, especially in today's industry situation. While to date the standard for games has been $ 60, many developers and distributors charge an additional $ 10 price on next-generation game versions in advance, and have jumped the price to $ 70. The most prominent examples of this are annual games such as FIFA, NBA 2K, and Voice of Duty
. God of War) and in part is considered a paid update (like Spider-Man). Only in recent months has Sony been reprimanded by its player community after announcing that the Horizon Forbidden West game upgrade will be free, just to get it back.
It was recently announced that Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII and Forspoken games will also hit the PC, and will boast a $ 70 price tag - although for PC gamers the term "next generation capabilities" is as irrelevant as it is to console gamers.
Microsoft is actually one of the few companies in the industry that has decided to adopt an approach of backward support for older games, and even titles from the Xbox 360 era can run and work on the One and Series X \ S consoles without any glitches.
An example for another company that supports a free upgrade to the next generation is CD Projekt Red, which is responsible for The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 games.
