Dying Light 2 Day 1 Patch: What You Can Expect

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is just a day away, and the team at Techland has been working on fixes and bugs before the game’s launch. During the last two weeks, there were over a thousand fixes and improvements for the PC and console versions. The video game company released patch notes for some of the fixes that will be available on Day 1 on consoles. As for the PC platform, it’s still working on fixes in real-time.

Here are the preliminary day 1 console patch notes:

  • Fixed the Broadcast infinite respawn story block
  • Fix for dialogues that block story progression
  • Re-signing to the co-op session doesn’t fail in case the user is logged in
  • Fixed crash when handing electrical parts to Carlos in Bazaar
  • Fixed problems with temporarily lowering the difficulty level – improved adaptive difficulty for AIs
  • Fixed crash caused by background renderer during the transition between menu and loading screens
  • Increased Wwise overall memory limit – fix for missing sounds and voice-over
  • Resolved problems with objects and AI sinking into the ground on a flat surface.
  • Fix for AI sometimes freezing/becoming immortal when the owner changes during death
  • Added protection against potential crashes.
  • Updates for ES, CH; DE intro.
  • Added missing game actions fixing occasional unresponsiveness.
  • Fixed Streamer Mode option which was not working properly.
  • Fixed crash on opening the secondary screen.
  • Fixed disconnecting co-op sessions after a certain amount of time.
  • And many more…

To note, most of these patches have been added for the PC version along with the two below.

  • DLSS enabled. Improved default DLSS sharpness.
  • Fixed the gamepad not being detected by the game before any movement or action is conducted using a keyboard or mouse.

I had the chance to play a review build of the game, and unfortunately, I’m having issues with a recent update that causes my game to crash when trying to load a new or saved game. Here’s hoping that a Day 1 patch will fix this issue for me, and here’s hoping that others won’t have the same issue I’m having.

FYI, I’m running a PC with the NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 GPU and AMD Ryzen 9 3900x and I tried lowering the graphics settings to the lowest quality with no success. The NVIDIA graphics driver has been updated, and I tested out other games to see if it was an isolated incident, but it was Dying Light 2 Stay Human that was giving me this issue. Also tried restarting the PC and Steam and validated the integrity of the files.
