Dying Light 2 On PS4 and Xbox One: Should You Get This Version?
Dying Light 2 is also available on the PS4 and Xbox One. Since this is a massive open-world game, it might be worth asking if you should get it.
Dying Light 2 is a pretty decent port for the PS5 and Xbox Series. It runs at 4K resolution and also supports a mode with ray-tracing, 60 FPS, and other visual improvements. The downside is that the game drops the resolution down to 1080p to bring these improvements unless you stick with the 4K resolution mode, which runs at 30 FPS.
This brings us the question of how well Dying Light 2 manages to run on the PS4 and Xbox One. The answer is, surprisingly well. The game is quite decent on the last-generation consoles, and not just the enhanced ones but the base consoles as well.
The game manages to run at 1080p on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. The graphics setting are equivalent to the PC medium preset according to Digital Foundry. For the PS4 and Xbox One, the resolution for Dying Light 2 is set at 864p, while the quality preset is set to low.
Aside from this visual difference, the game manages to hold the 30 FPS frame rate target quite well. It doesn’t drop that much in intensive scenes but does have a drawback in the form of screen tearing. When there is a lot of rendering load, the frames are torn and can lead to visual distraction. This is seen in the opening scene which is quite demanding. The screen tearing is not persistent though, so at least this is good news.
