Dying Light 2: Stay Human was published today, and it came with a day one update, as with other games. The patch, according to Techland, comprises over 1000 separate fixes and enhancements for all platforms, albeit we only got a look at a small portion of them.
Day one fixes are nothing new in today’s gaming world. It is, in fact, expected. Some may dismiss this element, claiming that it was never the standard in the past.
Patch Notes for Dying Light 2’s Day One Update
At the beginning of December, Dying Light 2 was certified gold. Techland has “added over a thousand fixes and improvements on all platforms” in the two months since that milestone. For consoles, the Day One patch includes “another thousand improvements,” while PC gamers will have their game updated in real-time. While the developer didn’t provide a comprehensive list of all of the improvements, they did provide a much more concise summary of the most critical ones :
- Fixed the Broadcast infinite respawn story block
- Fix for dialogues that block story progression
- Re-signing to the coop session doesn’t fail in case the user is logged in
- Fixed crash when handling electrical parts to Carlos in Bazaar
- Fixed problems with temporarily lowering the difficulty level – improved adaptive difficulty for AIs
- Fixed crash caused by background renderer during the transition between menu and loading screens
- Increased Wwise overall memory limit – fix for missing sounds and voice-over

After the game’s release date was pushed back in a few regions, Techland advised players to wait for this patch to get the most out of the game. With over a thousand fixes included, it’s no surprise that they wanted players to wait so they wouldn’t have to deal with as many problems.
