Fans of Dying Light 2: Stay Human have tons of new content to look forward to. Yesterday, the developer announced a new story expansion at Gamescom; the new DLC titled Blood Ties will release on October 13.

The DLC might be a little far away, but the developer still plans to support the game during the wait. The first community patch went live, which added new features, improved performance, and changes to Infected.

Right now, the patch is only live on PC. The console version of the patch is under submission and should arrive soon.

A new Color Grading option has been introduced. The Gritty option can be found under the video setting, and it will make the game similar to the 2019 gameplay presentation. Under video settings, players will also find the option to toggle Chromatic Aberration.

PC Only Changes

PC players have received additional features. The AMD FSR 2.0 support is now available and should help achieve a higher framerate with low visual fidelity loss. The patch also improves the GPU memory management in DX 12 mode, especially when ray tracing is enabled.

Console Only Changes

PS5 and Xbox Series X versions received some exclusives. PS5 players can now select Balanced Mode to play the game. Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support has been added to Performance Mode, and Resolution mode now supports native 4K at 30 FPS.

Xbox Series X players will find the game better looking in Balanced Mode as its resolution has been increased. The game now supports native 4K at 30 FPS in Resolution Mode.

General Improvements
  • Various graphical improvements, including new screen space ambient occlusion (SSAO) implementation.
  • Various image clarity improvements, including new temporal anti-aliasing (TAA) implementation and improved texture filtering.
  • Weapon mods can now increase weapons' maximum durability.
Changes to Infected
  • More Biters are now roaming The City.
  • Biters are now more aggressive at night.
  • Virals are now much more vigilant and will leave their hideouts more eagerly if they hear a fight nearby.
  • You will encounter more Special Infected at night.
  • Be wary of Dark Hollos and Forsaken Stores during the day - encounters there can be quite VOLATILE
