Dying Light 2 Stay Human Will Receive A Free Current-Gen Upgrade

glad we're finally calling it current gen.

ID: gzugz6l

AMEN! Ps4 and XBOX One are outdated.

ID: gzur6z1

They ARE 8 years old

It isn’t. Article is referring to the fact that ps4 and Xbox one get free upgrades. First sentence refers to the upgrades as being for next gen consoles.

This is a perfect example of why the term “current gen” is useless. “Next-gen” (or new-gen) and “last-gen” are unambiguous while current gen can mean either. Until they stop releasing most games for last-gen consoles they’re also current gen and at that point there’s no reason to specify any longer. I can understand why people don’t like “next-gen” once new consoles are actually available but that doesn’t automatically make the previous consoles no longer current. IMO current gen should only be used for games that are coming out on everything.

OP kind of poorly worded this.

I'll call it current gen when stores have em in stock. I have the ps5 and it feels boring because no one else has one.

There's still a ton of support and future 1st party games still coming to ps4. Ps5 feels like beta bc it lacks so many software features. No or very little games out on ps5 that make it feel like a different generation yet. Lack of available for a lot of ppl. It has only been out for 6 months.

Yeah I'll wait a bit until I call my ps5 current gen.

I have a group of seven I play with and 5 have one, anyone who really wanted one and prepared got one.

The Ps5 has sold more consoles this far into its lifespan than the PS4 did around this time. It’s not that it’s so rare no one can find them, they make a shitton and are selling a shitton. Supply just can’t keep up with the demand.

I wish it was current gen only. Id also like to know what platform the gameplay was captured on. The game looked very clean, and most importantly, smooth

ID: gzttuza

I mean, financially speaking you'd be insane to limit yourself to a drastically smaller userbase without a cushy deal from Sony or Microsoft.

ID: gzwb19l

Especially because the game began development years ago, specifically for last gen.

ID: gzvnmt1

This is only true up to a certain extent. The PS4 userbase is larger for sure, but it is also more dormant. A lot of these 100M PS4s have been gathering dust for months/years. Despite making up less than 10% of the installed base, Sony expects PS5 revenue share to reach 30% in 2021 (source, page 18). Even recently, RE8 sold nearly half of all its copies on PS5

The argument that it's financially insane to make a next-gen only game early in the generation doesn't hold up to scrutiny. The reality is much simpler: Dying Light 2 was never even intended to release after new consoles came out. It was developed as a PS4/X1 game.

ID: gzu5udp

Stooooop with this nonsense. Vast majority of the current ps4/xbo-only owners are casual at best. The millions with next gen consoles are the ones all but guaranteed to get this game day 1 and make up bulk of the sales.

I wish Dying Light 1 did. That looks terrible now in spite of the three or four rerelease, all of which neglect any enhancement.

ID: gzvsc7j

I love the game but the thing keeping me from continuing playing it is just that is looks fucking awful on console, idk if the engine allows it but if only they’d uncap the fps

ID: gzw7kh9

I played it at 3440:1440 120hz and max settings. That game need a hell of a lot more than a resolution and frame rate bump. Still it’s a great game. I can’t wait for 2.

ID: gzvfl09

Did you see the latest platinum edition? It's extremely expensive, and it would've been the perfect time to announce even a 60fps patch, but they haven't.

I'd hope it would have PS5 version since it's December 2021, a year after the console launched.

ID: gzwdvca

I think the point they're trying to make is the upgrade will be free, not that there will be an upgrade.

ID: gzwfaf0

That's always been the case but it should launch with it not after anyways

Well this is reassuring to hear.

7 : Anonymous2021/05/29 05:54 ID: gzug8he

best zombie game ever~!~!~!

8 : Anonymous2021/05/29 09:50 ID: gzuv2gj

hope ps5 version and ps4 can play together.

9 : Anonymous2021/05/29 13:03 ID: gzv8rst

Does this have to be reported Everytime?it's been 6 months since the consoles came out,so you'd hope big releases would come with next gen support already

ID: gzwbtx5

Because games like COD BOCW, Control, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, etc. don’t have free upgrades so it’s not standard unfortunately.

ID: gzwgrk2

Three of those games are from the same company lol

10 : Anonymous2021/05/29 08:16 ID: gzupjmu

Nice! I hope it plays decently well on the PS4, because that's where I'd like to buy it for now. I'm happy to hear that I'll get the PS5 version for free when I finally get it

11 : Anonymous2021/05/29 13:42 ID: gzvcdcd

Is this really news? Seems like the standard, bigger news would be if they actually made us pay for that kind of stuff.

ID: gzwbxco

Well sCOD, Control, etc. charge you for that

12 : Anonymous2021/05/29 02:06 ID: gztuzvw

PS4 version should be cheaper so ill grab that i guess

ID: gztyujg

It’s a free upgrade so it should be the same price right?

ID: gzuns7k

That's not always the case for some reason, especially with physical versions. I've preordered chivalry on ps4 as it's £5 cheaper.

ID: gzux7wy

Not at retail in Norway for some reason. It's weird, I know. PS4 version is cheaper than PS5 version

ID: gzug5qf

they are both the same price

ID: gzuymkn

He's not wrong. In Romania for example Spider-Man Miles Morales, Sackboy and other games that had a free upgrade to PS5 games were cheaper if you bought the PS4 version. For example, I saved €10 buying the PS4 Miles Morales on Christmas. The PS5 version was more expensive. That's for the physical version, not digital.

We're calling it "Stay Human"?

Isn't that just the tag line like Dying Light had "Goodnight, Goodluck"?

14 : Anonymous2021/05/29 16:05 ID: gzvrzqs

I'll gladly change my lingo of which gen is which when crossgen stops for 80% of multiplats and first party
