Dying Light 2 Server And Co-op Problems Are ‘Top Priority’ For Techland


With Dying Light 2 officially releasing today, the new action game is facing the sort of online issues that often plague new multiplayer games. Players on social media are currently reporting network disconnects, co-op problems, and other online issues, leading developer Techland to put out a statement saying that addressing these problems are at the “top of our list.”

In a statement echoed by Dying Light’s official Twitter account, a Techland rep told IGN, “Thank you to gamers for your feedback! Disconnects in co-op mode and problems with redeeming awards, codes, and other in-game content (including Twitch Drops from TechlandGG) are at the top of our priority list. Our team is on it. We will update you on the progress.”

Meanwhile, Dying Light subreddit moderators have created a megathread for players experiencing bugs and other issues. Common complaints include occasional screen flickering on PS5, co-op connections failing, and an inability to remap mouse buttons on PC. Strangely, some players even report a significant framerate drop the longer they play, with the only resolution appearing to be a reboot of the game. The remapping issue also ends up being an accessibility issue for some players.

“I dislocated a couple of fingers on my left hand 15+ years ago and have slightly reduced dexterity, so moving a couple of actions to the additional mouse buttons is the only way can comfortably play,” wrote Reddit user Retro-Squid. “Dying Light 2 simply won’t accept the mouse buttons for keyboard bindings.”

In our review of Dying Light 2, IGN writer Travis Northup also noted consistent audio issues, with one egregious example of an entire character being muted while speaking during cutscenes.

Credit where it’s due, Techland’s day one patch for Dying Light 2 included fixes for more than 1,000 bugs, including crashing, story progression issues, and some missing voiceover dialogue.
