Dying Light: Xbox 360- und PS3-Version gestrichen

Dying Light

Das Zombie-Survival-Adventure Dyling Light wird aufgrund technischer Einschränkungen nicht für Xbox 360 und PS3 erscheinen, bisher sollte das Game auch für diese Plattformen erscheinen. Entwickler Techland kündigte dies gestern an, dadurch wird das Spiel nur für PS4, Xbox One und PC veröffentlicht. In einer Stellungnahme auf Facebook schrieben die Entwickler:

Dear Gamers,

As you probably know, we’re wrapping up the development of Dying Light, our biggest and most ambitious project to date. 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.

Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.

To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available. Thanks to this, you’ll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on.

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.

Die Meldung kommt doch sehr überraschend, da Dying Light eigentlich im Januar 2015 erscheinen sollte. Die Last-Gen-Versionen befanden sich also wahrscheinlich in einem sehr fortgeschrittenen Entwicklungsstadium.

Dying Light ist bei uns ab dem 30. Januar 2015 für PC, PS4 und Xbox One im Handel erhältlich.

Das denken wir:
Ohne starke Hardware kommt ihr leider nicht in den Genuss von Dying Light. Aber zum Weihnachtsgeschäft werden sich wohl sowieso viele eine neue Konsole besorgen.
