Dying Light 2 More Friendly to People With Motion Sickness

Techland is relentless in improving their flagship game Dying Light 2. As a result, the Polish studio's title received an update numbered 1.8. What improvements does the patch bring?

It has not been known for a long time that Techland, like few others, is serious about constantly improving its games. Proof of this was, for example, the first installment of Dying Light, which the developer supported for more than 7 years. The case is no different with this year's sequel to the popular brand. Owners of Dying Light 2 can already download the update number 1.8.

On the official website of DL2 the developers have published a comprehensive briefing note, describing all the fixes brought by the patch. Interestingly, the patch not only fixes some of the problems plaguing the game, but is also supposedly makes it more friendly for players suffering from motion sickness (those who have played Techland's game know that it features intense camera movement when moving quickly).

In addition to this, the update improves the behavior of zombies, which will be more aggressive, and thus moving among them will prove to be more risky.

In addition, players should notice an increase in game performance after donloading the patch. PlayStation 4 owners can be especially pleased - the title from now on should load on their device nearly 10 seconds faster. Seemingly not much, but sometimes it can be a lifesaver.

It's also worth mentioning that gamers can now run benchmark tests to check the performance of their PCs when playing Dying Light 2. And the new Intel XeSS scaling gives more options when balancing image quality and performance.

You can find a detailed list of changes here.

Finally, it's worth mentioning that last month saw the release of the story DLC for Dying Light 2, titled Bloody Ties. Unfortunately, it met with mixed reviews. On Steam only 47% of users (out of 792 reviews) gave the DLC a positive review.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
