Techland’s Dying Light 2’s release date may have been pushed back to late 2020, but their first game continues to update. Dying Light 1 continues to hold community events and update years after its initial release in 2015.

Dying Light Patch 1.23 includes a variety of significant performance improvements, including an issue with framerate drop issues that affected multiplayer gameplay.

Dying Light is a first-person, action survival game set in a vast open world. Roam a city devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help defeat the hordes of flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created. At night, beware the Infected as they grow in strength and even more lethal nocturnal predators leave their nests to feed on their prey. Live to survive another day. Good Night, Good Luck.” states the first game’s introduction.

The world of Dying Light continues to be updated with new skins for the buggy features in the expansion pack, The Following. There are also collaborations with other series, like Left 4 Dead 2 and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.

That patch contains fixes for the game across platforms. They include resolving any random crash issues, fixing framerate drop issues, improvements to performance and game stability, and other minor fixes.

The PC version of the game received additional specific updates. There was an issue with the Faceless NPCs in The Following expansion, along with resolving rewards for local community goals.

Every few weeks, Techland announces a community event. They’re often on the weekend, so more players have time to play. Players work together to reach a specific goal that may range from defeating certain enemies or buggy races. If the community reaches the goal, players will receive bonus items like blueprints for weapons.

Most recently, Techland updated the game with a new Retrowave package. It includes a “Night Rider” outfit, a new buggy paint job “Speedmaster Turbo,” and three new weapon blueprints. The items were all created by the in-game twin geniuses Tolga and Fatin. The Retrowave package is available now.

Although the new release date for Dying Light 2 is not yet known, there is still plenty of content for players to enjoy.

Players don’t have to do anything to download the update. The patch will be automatically applied if players have Dying Light installed.
