After showing the above 6 minute demo of their latest first-person survival horror game, this time with added parkour, Dying Light during the Spike VGX Awards (please note that it’s the PS4 version, but the Xbox One version should look the same) Techland revealed to GamingBolt that not only are they aiming to have the Xbox One version running at 1080p 60fps:

We spoke to tech director Jakub Klarowicz about whether both the Xbox One and PS4 versions would run at 1080p and 60 FPS. He stated that, “It’s too early to tell. We aim to have the final game running at 1080p, 60 fps on both PS4 and Xbox One, and it seems that we will be able to achieve this. Obviously, we’re still working on the game itself and its optimization, but we aim to provide that kind of experience when the game launches.”


But also that it will support Kinect 2 with at least voice recognition in a similar way to one of Dead Rising 3’s features:

Producer Tymon Smektala also spoke about the differences between current and next gen versions of the game, including PS4 and Xbox One specific features such as Kinect and touchpad support.
“Of course, we’re also using some of the more specific next-gen features, like lightbar and touchpad support or voice recognition, the latter being tied to our in-game noise system (you can draw zombies’ attention just by screaming at them).”


Here’s a fact sheet with more info about the game along with the awesome E3 reveal trailer for anyone who may have missed it and a video of a previous 12 minute pre-alpha demo:

Dying Light is a first-person, action survival horror game set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, players traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown.  Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning’s first light.

Good Night. Good Luck.
