Yesterday, it was revealed that some players had got hold of the game early. Because of that, Techland recommended players to hold off until the day one patch came out.

In NME‘s review of Dying Light 2, we described it as “seriously below par” and that playing it “can feel like hard work”.

Last month, Techland revealed a content roadmap for Dying Light 2. 2022 will feature a mixture of free and paid content for the game. New content should be released every month with the first paid story downloadable content arriving in June. Previously, Techland announced that Dying Light 2 would receive five years of support.
