Dying Light 2: Stay Human could receive accessibility improvements in a future update.

Earlier today, we tweeted some accessibility impressions about Dying Light 2: Stay Human that launched on February 4, 2022, and we had some accessibility critiques surrounding some of the user interface and user experience areas. We don’t have plans to write a full accessibility review but wanted to still share some of our thoughts from the retail version.

These impressions were spotted by the UX and UI lead at Techland who has commented that “accessibility improvements are coming,” for Dying Light 2: Stay Human, “and are one of key areas for the UI team to do further work on.”

It’s unclear how soon we’ll see these possible improvements at this moment in time, but we can hope to see larger subtitles, UI elements, and perhaps some button choices for activating Survivor Sense. There could also be a fix for a bug mentioned by Windows Central’s Jez Corden, who tweeted that a console edition doesn’t seem to trigger the Survivor Sense feature when pressed.

Despite the small UI, our impressions noted that there are some useful features such as automatic ledge grabs and edge fall assist that could help players with traversal. However, the tutorial area requires numerous perfectly timed patterns to be achieved before progression.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human is available now for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
