Dying Light 2 Releases Third Major Update, Patch Notes Revealed

Techland has today released the third major update for its open-world action game Dying Light 2. This patch in question is actually one of the most notable since DL2 launched back in February of this year. Notably, this is because the update happens to add a number of highly-requested features to the game.

The biggest new addition to Dying Light 2 in Update #3 is that of New Game Plus. This is something that Techland has promised would be coming for quite some time, and as of today, it’s available in-game. New Game Plus will allow players who have already completed DL2 to carry over their character and progress to a completely new game without losing their stats and mechanics. In the process, enemies and new objects also now appear within the world of Dying Light 2 during NG+.

Other than this, Dying Light 2 has now also received a FOV slider for those playing on PS5 and Xbox Series X. This feature will allow players to customize their own in-game perspective and is something that PC users have grown accustomed to seeing.

Last, the latest DL2 patch also fixes a number of lingering bugs and further improves stability in the game overall. So if you’ve been running into various problems for yourself, hopefully, this patch finally fixes your issues.
