A new Dying Light 2 update is live on PS4 and PS5, and according to Techland, it’s coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X soon. How soon, we don’t know, but we do know what the update does, or at least the PS4 and PS5 version of the update. And the update is nothing major, however, it does surprise players with a handy feature that will ultimately save at least some players from a massive headache.
With the update, Techland has implemented a Backup Save system that allows players to roll back their progress — which includes a player’s inventory — to the last working story savepoint, which means players shouldn’t be trapped in a death loop or have their entire progress wiped by a save corruption issue.
Below, you can check out the complete patch notes for the update, courtesy of the game’s official Twitter account:
“Dying Light 2 gets off to a slow start, and some might even see it as a slog, but if you see it through just a bit longer, you’ll discover a tension-filled journey through the zombie apocalypse that rewards players who are fearless and leap into danger,” reads a snippet from our review of the game. “Soon you’ll be gliding, leaping, and zip-lining through the world and cleaving the most deadly of Infected with precision and utter brutality. This is not an easy world to live in, and at times the darkness can almost overwhelm you, but more often than not the rich characters, compelling narrative, and thrill ride combat create a mixture that just can’t be resisted, and it’s a world I look forward to returning to.”
