Techland just released the 1.2 patch for Dying Light 2 today on the PC. A console release of this update should be coming very soon, say in about the next couple of days.

Today's update is said to address issues that were reported by players. It also includes a number of technical and gameplay improvements such as better ragdoll mechanics, tweaks to melee combat, and more. There is now also a "high-performance" preset for the PC that is said to allow older hardware to play the game more reliably. Also, it seems as though the Level 4 chase sequences are now a bit more intense.

A general overview of the patch can be found below. If you want the full list of fixes and changes, be sure to visit the Dying Light 2 Patch 1.2 update notes on Steam or the Dying Light 2 website.
