If you were looking forward to Dying Light but didn’t want to take a step into the latest generation of consoles then we have some bad news for you. Today Techland has announced that they have cancelled the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game. The reason for these last-gen cancellations are due to the older consoles not being able to run the title properly and stay true to the experience Techland wants to deliver.
“Much of this ‘next-gen feel’ is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits.
Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.”
As such Dying Light will now be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on January 27th in North America and January 30th in Europe.
