The US ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) was updated with the classification of Dying Light, the Techland game based on zombies and parkour, on Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X / S. The Polish studio will release the version for the Nintendo console on October 19, 2021, and has already confirmed that the 60fps upgrade is in the works and will arrive soon on next-gen consoles.
The Switch version will include the base game, The Following expansion, seventeen skin bundles, and the two-game modes included in the DLC, The Horde of Bozak and Hellraid, all included in Dying Light: The Following. The game will run at 1080p / 30fps in docked mode and 720p / 30fps for portable mode.
The situation changes instead of on next-gen, where Techland is working on a free upgrade to introduce 60fps and – hopefully – also supports other features of the new generation consoles, such as 3D Audio and reduced loads. Currently, the upgrade does not have a release date, but the fact that the ESRB has classified the game suggests that it will be released in 2021. In all cases, the upgrade should arrive before the release of Dying Light 2: Stay Human, scheduled for February 4, 2022.
