The developer of the upcoming survival horror titled Dying Light - Techland studio - has announced that the future game will be launched only on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The company has referred such a decision to the fact that originally this project was meant for the next-gen consoles, while PS3 and Xbox 360 distort the core vision of the game.
“We spent the last three years making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience. Much of this “next-gen feel” is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200.000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms”, - the developers have written on the project’s Facebook page.
Besides, the creators of the survival horror have noted that they have made a conclusion to stop working on the versions of Dying Light on PS3 and Xbox 360 after the latest testing. It has proven that the last-gen consoles just won’t run the game. Thus, the players won’t be able to try and enjoy its advantages to the full.
“We hope you understand the hard choice we’ve had to make. With the launch just around the corner, we can’t wait to show you Dying Light in the state it was meant to be. We’re looking forward to your reactions and impressions as we release the game in January 2015”, - the studio’s representatives have added.
