Dying Light 2 Co-Op Details Confirmed, Cross-Platform and Cross-Gen Co-Op Will Be Unavailable at Launch

Richard Walker

Techland has confirmed some particulars regarding co-op play in Dying Light 2 Stay Human, noting that the cross-platform and cross-generation co-operative experience will be unavailable for consoles at launch. But with five years of post-launch content planned, presumably these will be features rolled out at some point in the future.

When playing co-op in Dying Light 2, which supports up to four players, Techland has also confirmed that the entire game will be playable in co-op, from start to finish. Any players visiting a host player's game as a session guest will also retain items and progression, and important choices made during the story will be put to the vote between players, with the host ultimately having the final decision.

Finally, the developer has also announced that Dying Light 2 Stay Human will support a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5, allaying fears that the game may be releasing as two separate SKUs. That will evidently not be the case. Dying Light 2 Stay Human launches on 4th February, with pre-orders bagging the ‘Reload Pack’ and 'Reach for the Sky Pack' bundling outfits, weapons, backpack, and paraglider skins.

  • Urgh, I hope this "persistent" progression doesn't mean it's sotred on servers and will shut down inevitably. Also hope's up for no co-op trophy like in Dead Island.
  • So not fully ready then bad bad
  • There's Coop trophies C1ned. The list is on PSNP. It's quite a meh list. Getting collectibles in these games is never fun and they are having us do a ton...
  • “Not available at launch” is a good indicator to avoid a title for me these days. This game was already delayed numerous times.
  • Still no playable female character. They could've gotten $200 from my girlfriend and me, but now it's $0. Such a shame.
  • Why is it soo important to play a female character?
    Can't play a male in horizon and no one crying.
    If the author say it's a male lead. It is a male lead. End of story.
  • @Cirative Lol. Stay woke.
  • By then wokey Cirative, go play something for whining toddlers
