Techland studios did include VR support in Dying Light 2, and it even makes sense for a zombie game because players would like the immersive experience. But the practical results outweigh the actual thrill of Parkour and bashing zombies on the run. The playing style of Dying Light heavily relies on Parkour which is fun with a controller or keyboard mouse combo. The intense Parkour induces motion sickness in VR mode as the player is idle, but their surroundings change constantly. Even Tymon Smektala, the lead designer of Dying Light, said that it was both the best and worst game to experience in VR.
