Could Techland really have managed to craft a proper 120 FPS mode for a taxing game like Dying Light 2? As it turns out, not quite. Speaking to MP1st, Lead Level Designer Piotr Pawlaczyk clarified this will be obtained through variable refresh rate, meaning that it'll offer 'unlocked' 60 FPS rather than proper 120 FPS.
It follows that only platforms with VRR support such as Xbox Series S|X (and PC, of course) will be able to exploit these benefits, while PlayStation 5 users will have to wait for whenever Sony adds variable refresh rate to the console.For those who, as you, appreciate smooth gameplay, we have prepared the Performance mode, which focuses on a high frame-rate (60FPS + optionally with VRR), making the experience of fast gameplay elements such as a course or combat even more smooth.
Dying Light 2 is set to launch on December 7th for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S|X.
Techland confirmed that Dying Light 2 will support 120Hz refresh rate through VRR, which currently means on Xbox Series rather than PS5.
