Dying Light 2: Stay Human is an upcoming first-person action game that takes place after a zombie apocalypse. It's hitting PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on February 4, 2022. You step into the shoes of Aiden Caldwell who's on a quest for revenge. On this path, you encounter a number of unique characters and help shape the city through the decisions you make.

The title is getting mixed reviews, and the majority of issues appear to stem from the game-breaking bugs that include missing world chunks and corrupted saves. It currently sits at a 77 on Metacritic for the PlayStation 5 (PS5) version. Developer Techland is aware of these problems and is working on patches.

Whenever a major new game comes out, current-generation console owners are curious about how it looks and runs on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Luckily, Digital Foundry compared the two versions. For the most part, they're identical, but on Resolution Mode, Dying Light 2 runs at 1800p on PS5 and 1944p on Xbox Series X. This means that the Xbox Series X renders around 17% more pixels.

While this difference may seem minor, it results in a noticeable boost to fences and meshes, even power lines and cords in the distance. They look less jaggy — aliased — when you view them on Xbox Series X versus PS5. If you're a stickler for visuals, you'll want to keep these differences in mind. This news follows a recent trend where the Xbox Series X versions of major games run at higher resolutions in general.
