Dying Light 2 developers are targeting 4K native resolution for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. The game is still far off from so the Techland isn’t committing to a resolution for the time being.
However, all the assets placed inside the game at this point are all in native 4K. Whether or not they would be able to keep all native 4K assets remains to be seen.
Speaking with Segmetnext, Techland shared the following statement about its resolution goals.
We are talking about goals – and of course, the goal for any developer is to create a game of highest quality possible. It’s the same here. But it’s too early to talk about specific and the exact definition of 4K. Optimization and final visual polish is something that happens at the end of the project when the whole game is locked in, and you know what is the exact weight of all of the assets, gameplay logic, etc. But everything that we put in the game at this point is native 4K, so here’s hope we will be able to keep it that way on the most powerful platforms
It depends on the hardware power under the hood for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Microsoft’s gaming machine was able to run Red Dead Redemption 2 at Native 4K.
Rockstar’s title is one of the biggest and most demanding games of this generation so it is safe to say Xbox One X can handle Dying Light 2 at 4K.
As far as PS4 Pro goes, the console is underpowered compared to Xbox One X. It isn’t expected to hit native 4K but then again, Dying Light 2 isn’t as demanding as Red Dead Redemption 2.
Still, Dying Light 2 is a massive game with 4-times the map size compared to the first game. The map is huge and can be shaped “through the protagonist’s actions.”
This way each player can have his own version of The City. Imagine what it means for co-op – you can join your friends games and see how they transformed the place. To see everything you’ll have spend hundreds of hours!
Speaking of the protagonist, the E3 trailer revealed the first look for the hero. The lead hero is described “as an enigma” compared to Kyle Crane by Techland.
One of the major complaints about Dying Light was its dull protagonist. Developers are looking to change this with the second installment.
It was assumed that the lead character is played by Troy Baker, however, Techland confirmed Troy is not involved with the project.
The full cast of the game is being kept under wraps for the time being.
Dying Light 2 is targeting a 2019 release for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, and PC.
