Dying Light 2 is going to be a fantastic horror experience on the PS5 it seems. Techland says the game is taking full advantage of the hardware including DualSense support and 3D audio to deliver an immersive, uncomfortable horror game. They also say that raytracing support brings the world to life.
In the latest issue of PLAY Magazine, the developer detailed how they made the game to feel truly unique on the console. Techland says that the haptic feedback in the DualSense controller allowed them to customize each weapon’s feeling. In addition, the adaptive triggers are used to create tension for bows, guns and more.
Dying Light 2 is also built using a full raytracing pipeline and the PS5 is helping bring this to life.
The sequel uses PS5’s powerful tech to deliver a unique experience. Speaking to PLAY last issue, the team revealed the new-gen version of the game makes use of the DualSense to enable us to feel each melee weapon, bow, and homemade gun in our hands. Ray tracing brings extra depth to the world, while 3D audio heightens the horror the original game hinted at.
Add in the PS5 3D Audio support for Dying Light 2 and you have yourself a full package of PS5 goodness. The DualSense is definitely an accessory that helps the console stand out from the rest and couple that with raytracing and unique 3D sound and we are sold.
There was some concern about the lack of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S enhancements in Dying Light 2. Especially given the game is cross-platform with PS4 and Xbox One. Thankfully, it seems Techland is fully making use of the hardware and tech to deliver a truly enhanced horror experience.
Dying Light 2 is set to launch on 7 December for PS5, PS4, Xbox and PC. Check out the latest trailer for the game down below:
