Dying Light 2 Photomode? Why or why not – Scenery Obsession

Many games are releasing with a photomode these days. Some games are even making the photomode a staple of their overall playing experience.

Ghosts of Tsushima, for example, has one of the best photomodes we have ever seen in a video game. Players spend hours creating the perfect photo to upload to social media to share with their friends, or even sell to content creators. It is a very booming business online.


Does Dying Light 2 have a photo mode?
No, Dying Light 2 does not have a photo mode.

It would be quite amazing if it did. Though this process can hinder co-op play just a bit. Many photographers in other games are able to stop in-game time; however, Dying Light 2 cannot do that if Co-operative play is enabled. SO, perhaps that is why we did not get a photomode in the game.

Whatever the reason, it doesn’t stop us from trying. I am overly obsessed with the scenery of the game. I am especially fond of the downtown scenery.

The rooftop groves, the buildings, and the landscape are gorgeous. It is almost hard to believe you are in a post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with zombies and Renegades.


Take away the buildings and what do you have? A wonderful mountainous backdrop of Eastern Europe.

One of my favorite things to photograph is the combination of buildings and mountain scenery. Especially if you can get sunrise or sunset to emerge just right.


I want to share a bit of that before we continue on about why or why not Dying Light 2 should get a photomode.

Now, should Dying Light 2 get a photo mode?
Short answer is no.
Now, would I absolutely salivate over this being added to the game? Yes, I would. The issue is that, unless they have one already developed, the process to make this would take away future content. Personally, I want DLCs. DLC’s in the form of content and I also want more style options for my characters. I want an option to represent the survivors, Peacekeepers, the Renegades, or whomever I decide. We probably miss out on a variety of things if the developers take the time to add us in a photomode. As evidenced by Dying Light (1).

Creating amazing photographs in a game that doesn’t have a working photo mode is a little bit tougher than games that do have one. The reward, though, is just as sweet.

I doubt we will ever have a photo mode in Dying Light 2. For the reasons I laid out above. It does take away from other content, but also the issue of co-op play. I would be excited if they did decide to bring one to Villedor.

Thanks for reading. I have many photos posted on social media. Make sure you check them out – Facebook Discord TumblrTwitter

One thought on “Dying Light 2 Photomode? Why or why not – Scenery Obsession

  1. I’m a sucker for photomode and any game releasing with it becomes a part of my to-play list. I’ve been a part of modding communities for quite a while, mostly the ones related to injecting camera tools in games.

    I did hear that a dedicated photo mode for Dying Light 2 is in works. Fingers crossed, for now.

    It may seem like a shameless plug, but I’ve uploaded a Gallery of in-game captures on my site, open for you to check out anytime!
