Alongside today’s Dying Light 2 Dying 2 Know episode, which was the game’s last before launch, Techland did a Q&A where Lead Game designer at Techland, Tymon Smektala fielded a few questions from viewers. One of the questions asked was Dying Light 2 crossplay, which the developer confirmed won’t be available.

In the video chat, Smektala was asked if Dying Light 2 will feature crossplay to which he answered, “No, not at this moment; it won’t be available.”

As for cross-gen, Smektala was asked whether PS4 players can play with PS5 players, and he confirmed that this won’t be available at launch stating, “This won’t be possible at the launch of the game, but we are working to make it possible after the launch.”

While no crossplay and cross-gen is a bummer, there is a bit of good news. When asked whether the game can be completed with a friend, Smektala confirmed that it could, with a maximum of four players. Outside of the starting tutorial level of sorts, players will be able to team up and complete the entire story campaign with a friend or friends! Regarding decisions within the game that will affect the story (and in turn, gameplay), the host of the session will be the one that gets the final decision.

Speaking of co-op, Techland revealed our first look at co-op today, alongside a look at last-gen with comparison on how it fares to next-gen! As for the main campaign, players can expect to finish it with at least 20 hours of game time logged and even more if they want to do the side quests.

Dying Light 2 is set for release this February 4 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. You can read our impressions of it after playing it for three hours right here.
