The first notable bit of Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s story DLC was scheduled to hit early this summer with a host of new gameplay improvements and new story content for the game. Unfortunately, much like every single other thing in the world, it is getting a delay a little later than developer Techland expected. The new date for the DLC will have to wait until sometime in September.
While the game itself was released in February, the first major update in April brought along a number of fixes for the game and quality of life improvements. Techland has promised a number of further updates, such as photo mode, but says that the story DLC requires a bit more time and polish to make it over the finish line.
“Your feedback has always been our top priority,” Techland said in a press release addressing fans. “That’s why, at Techland, we strive to be as open and as honest with you as possible. Over the last few months, we have focused on adding some of your most requested features, such as New Game + mode, FOV slider for consoles, and many co-op improvements. On top of that, in June, we will introduce the first game Chapter entitled ‘In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner,’ filled with content and events, as well as the highly anticipated photo mode. That being said, we need a bit more time to develop the first story DLC, which is now planned to be released in September.”
The chapter being referred to is more of an event than story DLC.
When Dying Light 2 Stay Human released earlier in the year, our review called it “a worthy, if imperfect successor.” Reviewer Collin Macgregor believed there were a lot of noticeable issues with the game, but it was still remarkably fun to play at the end of the day.
Dying Light 2 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and PC, with a Cloud-based Switch version targeting late summer as well.
