- Balanced Mode targeting 60 FPS in QHD
- Quality Mode with 30 FPS with 4K Resolution
PlayStation 4 Pro
- Improved the 30 FPS Cap on PS4 Pro

These next-gen upgrades will also be coming to the Xbox versions of Dying Light, but no release date for the Xbox Series X|S upgrade patch has been given at this time.
