Hunting zombies has become more than a hobby for some of the most hardcore gamers out there since they got a taste for it in games such as Call of Duty, World War Z, or Days Gone.

Ridding the planet, or what’s left of it, of these bloodthirsty parasites has become an art for many, and Dying Light 2 takes the experience to a whole different level.

But doing it yourself is not as rewarding or thrilling as going at it with some friends, which is why a lot of people are asking if Dying Light 2 even has any crossplay and cross-gen features.

No doubt many of you have heard that Dying Light supports co-op gameplay with up to 4 players, so we can understand where all the confusion is coming from.

You might not like the answer we’re about to give you if you are not a PC player, so let’s get right into it and settle this once and for all.

Can I crossplay or cross-gen play Dying Light 2?

The hard truth is that, if you haven’t bought this game for PC, the above-mentioned features will not be accessible to you on consoles.

Thus, there is no crossplay for Dying Light 2, which means if you have a PlayStation you won’t be able to play with gamers that have opted for an Xbox or a PC.

As sad as it might seem, the logistics alone for making something like that happen appears not to have been a priority for Techland.

And, since we’re on the topic, you should know that Dying Light 2 also does not support cross-gen gameplay whatsoever.

Just to make sure we’re clear, if you have a PlayStation 4 you won’t be able to play with your friends that might have PlayStation 5.

That means that, if you play on Xbox One, you won’t be able to play with your friends that might have Xbox Series S or Series X and vice versa.

Developers are also reportedly working on the cross-gen features so the keyword in this situation is patience.

That being said, we hope you have a good time playing Dying Light 2 Stay Human on whatever platform you decided to buy it for.
