With the official release of Dying Light 2 today, the new action game has experienced some of the networking issues that often crop up in new multiplayer games. Players on social media have been reporting online outages, co-op issues, and other online issues, leading developer Techland to release a statement saying the resolution to these issues is “at the top of our list.”
Thank you gamers for your feedback! Co-op outages and issues with rewards, codes, and other in-game content (including TechlandGG’s Twitch Drops) are at the top of our priority list. Our team is doing it. We will keep you updated on the progress of the work.
Meanwhile, the moderators of the subreddit Dying Light created a megathread for players facing bugs and other issues. Common complaints include intermittent screen flickering on PS5, co-op connection failures, and inability to remap mouse buttons on PC. Strangely, some players are even reporting significant framerate drops the longer they play, and the only solution to the problem seems to be to restart the game. The button remapping issue has also become an accessibility issue for some players.
I sprained a couple of fingers on my left hand 15+ years ago and have slightly reduced manual dexterity, so shifting a couple of actions to additional mouse buttons is the only way to comfortably play. Dying Light 2 just doesn’t accept mouse buttons for snapping
To be fair, Techland’s Dying Light 2 Day 1 patch fixed over 1,000 bugs, including crashes, story flow issues, and some missing dialogue.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human is available now for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC. The game will release for Switch later this year.
