Techland has also fixed blocks in multiple quests including Into The Dark, Assassination, Sophie in The Raid Quest, Hubert in The Only Way Out, Veronika, Nightrunners, The Lost Light and Double Time.
1.2.0 also changes the way ragdoll physics operate, meaning it should work more naturally throughout the game.
In addition, the update improves Dying Light 2’s ending sequences. “Additional end-of-game scenes have been added to better align gameplay and outro scenes.”
The patch also includes Xbox specific features like a new Balanced Mode that runs in 60 FPS on Xbox Series X, while there have also been a few Xbox Series S game modes added, including Performance Mode that runs in 60 FPS.
Released in February, Techland confirmed that Dying Light 2 will feature “five years of game support post-launch” including more events, locations and in-game items alongside story DLC and updates.
In other news, Xbox Game Studios has confirmed that Halo Infinite won’t be available to play on Steam Deck due to anti-cheat software, with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears 5 and Microsoft Flight Simulator X also unplayable for the same reason.
A roundup of Verified (“The game works great on Steam Deck, right out of the box”) and Playable (“The game may require some manual tweaking by the user to play”) games for the Steam Deck have also been released.
