That new Dying Light 2 New Game Plus update you've been waiting for is finally on the horizon. An update adding that very same feature is coming on Wednesday, and it's also bringing a much-requested console feature to the game, as well as several bug fixes.
How will the Dying Light 2 New Game Plus mode work?
After new Dying Light 2 parkour challenges were added in an update last month, the new patch is all about getting to relive the game's story. The Dying Light 2 New Game Plus mode arrives on April 27th, allowing you to head back into a fresh run of the game complete with all of your upgrades and equipment intact. That's not all, though; the New Game Plus mode is also adding 30 new inhibitors to help you boost your stats, as well as higher enemy level scaling, new tough Golden Mark enemies to take on, and a brand new quest exclusive to New Game Plus. Many of the new encounters will reward you with Legendary gear, and there are also new Platinum parkour medals, in which you'll go up against the Dying Light 2 community's best times.
This upcoming update is also adding an FOV slider for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X players, meaning you can change your perspective in-game to suit your preferences. This option was already available on PC, so it's nice to see Techland bringing it to consoles too. As well as this, the upcoming Dying Light 2 update is also bringing a host of bug fixes, mainly focused on the co-op mode. This should make it a little easier to finish the story alongside your friends. Techland says it'll be posting the full list of changes on the game's official Steam page and socials, so keep an eye out for that.
Dying Light 2 is doing pretty well right now
If you're a Dying Light 2 fan, then you'll be pleased to know that the game has performed pretty well in terms of sales. It didn't take long for Techland's zombie parkour-'em-up to surpass 3 million sales, but over the weekend, the developer revealed that its game crossed 5 million units sold within its first month on release. That's a pretty impressive statistic, and certainly one of which Techland should be proud. Here's hoping the strong performance inspires another entry in the series.
