Dying Light receives long-awaited Xbox Series X|S upgrade

Last year, developer Techland announced that a PlayStation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series X|S patch for Dying Light was in development. Dying Light 2 recently launched to good reviews, but if you want to play the original on next-generation hardware, now's your chance. Dying Light now features higher resolution visuals as well as an improved frame rate on Xbox Series X|S. The PS5 patch has been available for a few days.

Dying Light used to run at 900p and 30 frames per second (FPS) on Xbox One. Luckily, now you have a few modes to choose from. According to the game's website, Quality mode allows you to run the game at 4K resolution and 30 FPS, Balanced allows for 4K and 60 FPS — but the performance isn't perfect — while Performance reduces the resolution to 1080p, but offers a stable 60 FPS.

Unfortunately, the Xbox Series S features two modes and both run at 30 FPS. I've been testing out the update on Xbox Series X for over an hour now and it is a marked improvement. The visuals still hold up after all these years and you can really see the beauty of the title on consoles now that the resolution is four times more than what it used to be, with double the frame rate.
