Dying Light 2 is a first-person action game that takes place after a zombie apocalypse. The title received mixed reviews at launch, and currently sits at a 77 on Metacritic for the Xbox Series X version. However, over the past week, developer Techland has issued a few patches that have addressed many of the concerns critics had with the bugs and performance.
Today, the team released another update that improves performances, adds a 60+ frames per second (FPS) variable refresh rate mode, improves ally and enemy behavior, and corrects some broken quests. Neowin has been testing out the patch for the past few hours and there's a noticeable increase in smoothness.

Performance mode, where the game runs at 60 FPS, is still the best way to play and now has minimal FPS drops. Quality and Resolution mode also seem smoother, but the difference is less evident because they're locked at 30 FPS.
Despite the not-so-stellar reviews and bugs at launch, Dying Light 2 has set the sales charts on fire. According to the game's official Twitter account, the title has been played by over 3 million unique gamers already. This is an excellent start and hopefully will continue into the future.
Dying Light 2 is a good game, but it's story isn't as gripping as it could be with less characters and a tighter focus on the main quest. It's still a lot of fun and you can pick it up on the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice, like PC or PlayStation, for $59.99.
