Techland is currently working on a PlayStation 5 patch for the original Dying Light game, it's been confirmed. The Polish studio today responded to fans on Twitter asking for the update to be a thing, requesting a 4K resolution and a smooth 60 frames-per-second when the title is played on a PS5 system. It said: "We're currently working on a next-gen patch for Dying Light 1 — more details coming in the future."
When running on a PS5 via backwards compatibility, Dying Light retains the same technical limitations as the native PS4 version: a 1080p resolution at 30 frames-per-second. A PS5 patch would bring both those aspects into the modern era; we can hope for 4K at 60 frames-per-second. The update would also be a nice little surprise for fans to check out while Dying Light 2 reaches the development finish line, which is now slated for February 2022.
Would this PS5 patch tempt you into another Dying Light playthrough? Let us know in the comments below.
