Dying Light 2 Update Adds Balanced Mode, VRR Support, and Native 4K/30 For PS5

Techland has updated Dying Light 2 today bringing a number of modes to the PS5 version of the game including a Balanced and VRR mode.

Dying Light 2 launched without any VRR support on the PS5. Sony later added VRR support in a firmware update which was then subsequently added to other games with patches.

Dying Light 2 has joined the boat as well with an update that adds VRR support for the Performance mode. There is also a new Balanced mode providing 60 FPS at the best possible visual quality. A resolution mode is also available for those who can stick with native 4K and 30 FPS.

  • Virals are now much more vigilant and will leave their hideouts more eagerly if they hear a fight nearby.
