Where: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch

Dying Light was first released in 2015. Seven years after the first installment of the game, Techland plans to release the second edition in February this year.

Quick play will also bring multiple checkpoints to each level, so there’s no need to start over. However, the biggest change to OlliOlli World is the addition of alternate routes through Radlandia and a multiplayer mode allowing users to beat others who have played each level. Players will also be able to share a stage with a friend so they can try to beat your OlliOlli World score.

Sifu
