Dying Light 2 crossplay - can you play cross-platform co-op?

With some excellent co-op action to be had, is there Dying Light 2 crossplay support so you can enjoy it with pals on other platforms?

‘Does Dying Light 2 have cross-play?’ has been a question on players’ minds ever since the game was announced. Playing co-op with your friends in the first Dying Light and in the various modes that were added after release were some of the most enjoyable moments in that game.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human arrived seven years after the release of the first game and since then multiplayer and co-op games have made crossplay a fundamental feature. But does that extend to Dying Light 2? Read on for a deep dive into what is available when playing in co-op and whether or not you will be able to play with your friends on other platforms as you traverse the city of Villedor.

Dying Light 2 crossplay

Dying Light 2 launched without full crossplay support and still does not have the feature today. We don’t expect Techland to add the feature in either.


However, for console players, cross-generation support can now be found in Dying Light 2 thanks to a post-launch update. This means players on PS4 and PS5 can team up, and Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players can too.

Despite not having cross-play, you will be able to experience the entire story of the game (bar the opening tutorial) with your friends if you are looking to parkour around the cityscapes and pummel the undead together. Just make sure you’re all on the same console family!

That covers Dying Light 2’s cross-play functionality. Be sure to check out our list of the best zombie games for more excellent undead adventures.
