Dying Light 2: Stay Human Good Night Good Luck Update Ensures Darker Nights and Better Parkour

Good Night Good Luck Update Techland

Techland deployed an update for its post-apocalyptic horror shooter Dying Light 2: Stay Human that you definitely need to check out. Update v1.11, aka Good Night Good Luck update, introduced a plethora of new features and improvements, including darker and scarier nights, as well as some much-needed parkour changes.

The company wants to enhance the overall look, feel, and tension of the nighttime aspect of Dying Light 2. Thus, improvements were made to ensure that experience.

After updating to Good Night Good Luck, you will instantly notice that nighttime visibility has been reduced significantly for that heightened tension. As if that's not bad enough, Volatiles roaming at night now move across rooftops, so you will never be safe at night ever again!

You can also expect an increased number of zombies. Be careful when roaming the streets or exploring buildings when it's dark because you'll never know what's going to happen! You might get attacked by zombies when you least expect it!

Parkour is another fundamental aspect of the game that was improved in this patch. Performing a series of parkour moves does not feel clunky anymore because you will now keep your momentum as you move forward. Additionally, you can now personalize your sprinting experience with a new option that lets you switch between manual and auto modes any time.
