Dying Light 2 Update: A hooded man standing on a roof, overlooking a ruined city

With an Anna Karenina level of dialogue, hundreds of hours of content, and more infected than you can swing a bloody baseball bat at, it’s safe to say that Dying Light 2 has everything a zombie-filled open-world game needs. However, all of that comes at a price: bugs. Techland has been hard at work implementing fixes and improvements, but its work is far from over. Thankfully, we have everything you need to know about the latest Dying Light 2 update.

As much as we wish it wasn’t the case, a game as large as Dying Light 2 is always going to have a few issues that need fixing – it’s an unfortunate by-product of having a game with so many moving parts.

With two major story DLCs already announced and new enemies, stories, events, and more filling the Dying Light 2 roadmap, Techland has committed to over five years of support for this game. That means there’s going to be a new Dying Light 2 update to talk about for quite some time. To make keeping track of it all easier for you, we have everything you need to know below.

Let’s get stuck into the latest Dying Light 2 update and the patch notes from Techland.
