Techland has confirmed that Dying Light 2 crossplay won't be featured, with cross-gen not available at launch. Story can be finished with up to 4 players.

Are you serious, not even cross gen play. Wtf? It's a game built for 4 player coop and we're in-between gens.

There are plenty of systems out there, bro. Can't keep supporting last gen.

porkChop4d ago

Huh? What do you mean we can't keep supporting last gen? The game is cross gen. It's releasing on every system but the Switch. But the game doesn't have cross gen co-op. So PS4 players can't play with PS5, same with Xbox One and Series gamers.

SurgicalMenace4d ago

Yes, we should stop expecting it anymore.

“Can’t keep supporting last gen”

Only that’s exactly what they’re doing??

Lol bro just say you misunderstood and let that be that. Not the hill to die on.

CorndogBurglar4d ago

What you're saying isn't wrong, but it doesn't fit here.

Yes, they should start to let go of supporting last gen. I agree.

But this game is on last gen consoles lol. It only makes sense to have cross-gen play on this game.

SurgicalMenace4d ago

It doesn't make too much sense because it's not there. I say good, start focusing on developing a next gen only ecosystem. Incentivising the new system purchases.

Sure they can, MS supports it, Sony Supports it and the vast majority of 3rd parties.

In a sense Techland is as well, they made ps4 and Xbox versions lol. They just 1/2 stepped on a few feature.

"Plenty of systems out there."
Lol what? Considering how hard it is for people to find PS5s in stores due to shortages, the developers absolutely should've made cross-gen play a priority

You can expect it until 2023 at the very least.

Maybe they aren't supporting cross gen play due to loading times being significantly faster on the current gen than last gen

What I hate about co op games like this is only the host player makes real progress, you can't go back to your own and have the same progress so it makes it redundant.

They (devs) cover that in their latest and last video they've actually given thought to that.

My Co-op crew on PS5 so we should be good. But this would be a bummer if not. Considering the dev cycle you would of thought this would be included on launch day at least on the cross-gen scale.

If I were to download the digital edition which features both gen version and install the PS4 version of the game onto my PS5, would I then be able to play with my friends on PS4?

GortJester4d ago

Yes you should be able to no problem

Lexreborn24d ago

Everyone I would play with is on current gen so I’m not to concerned. But it is sad that if I have the PS4 and PS5 copy I wouldn’t be able to play with my son. They’ll probably. Patch it later who knows
