Dying Light 2 is out today and with it comes a day one patch. The day one patch in question comes with over 1,000 fixes. Yikes!
In the modern gaming era, day one patches are nothing new. In fact, it’s expected. Some may look down on this aspect and say back in the day, this was never the norm.
Yeah, I ‘member
Thankfully, before the age of the internet, most games would be released in an acceptable state. Unfortunately, if a game was broken, there wasn’t much else you could do, other than send the product back.
I suppose depending on your perspective, the generation of a day one patch can be considered a good or bad thing. For me personally, as much as I would prefer a game to release in an acceptable state, some issues cannot be foreseen until out in the wild. So, I see the benefits of being able to easily fix issues with a simple download.
1,000 fixes and counting!
However, even for a game as large as Dying Light 2: Stay Human, 1,000 fixes are a lot! Most of the fixes are for stability and so forth. As reported by IGN, below are some of the highlights from update 1.004:
- Fixed the Broadcast infinite respawn story block
