Dying Light 2: Stay Human is less than a month away, and publisher Techland is keeping the hype train running with one last “Dying 2 Know” episode. This one’s a big one and addresses some lingering questions, including “How does co-op work?” and “What does the game look like on last-gen consoles?” We also get a nice chunk of new gameplay, showing off the game’s various features. You can check out Dying 2 Know Episode 6 below, provided you have around 20 minutes to spare.
As mentioned, co-op was probably the biggest thing discussed during the show. Up to 4 players can play together, and even if you’re not hosting, you get to keep all your items and player progression. No mission is walled off from co-op either, with players being able to vote when branching narrative choices come up. As for how the game runs on last-gen consoles, the results look pretty solid. Granted, the lighting isn’t as nice, and I’m sure the resolution takes a hit, but the base assets look about the same as they do on PC/XSX/PS5. Need to know more about Dying Light 2?
