Techland released Dying Light, its zombie parkour game, back in 2015, and surprisingly, the game has been supported by the studio for more than seven years. This year, Dying Light received a new-gen performance patch and 7th Anniversary DLC in the form of free weapon skins and more.
Today, however, Techland announced that its support for Dying Light is ending, but not without one final surprise. The studio has rolled out all of its support for the game in a brand new Dying Light: Definitive Edition, out tomorrow.
“Dying Light has been an amazing journey and we are grateful to the community for supporting the game with us over the past 7 years,” reads a press release. “However, we also understand that the sheer number of updates and DLCs being released for our game can be daunting for new and returning players. We don’t want you to miss any part of the full Dying Light experience. That’s why we’re proud to introduce Dying Light: Definitive Edition.”
As previously mentioned, the Dying Light Definitive Edition is out tomorrow and will go live with “a massive discount of up to 70% off.” It will be available on all platforms as a digital version. However, the Switch version will later be released in both digital and retail versions. This edition includes the base game and all 26 of its DLCs, including skin bundles and expansion packs, and Techland says, “It’s the best way to experience the amount of content and love we’ve put into this game over 7 long years .”
To thank everyone for supporting the game, the studio is releasing one final free DLC called the Harran Tactical Unit Bundle, available for two weeks starting tomorrow. If you already own the Platinum Edition of Dying Light, you will be automatically upgraded to the Definitive Edition for free, giving you five new bundles at no additional cost.
Techland wrote a heartfelt letter to its fans to round out today’s news. Here it is in full:
“This release marks an important moment in the history of Dying Light. On the one hand, it’s a tribute to 7 years of immeasurable love and support for this game; on the other hand, it is the grand finale of our adventures in Harran. But let’s see what the future holds. And don’t worry – we’ll have a constant replay of previous events for you.
Once again, we couldn’t be happier with the amazing memories this game has brought us, mostly because of our wonderful community. And yet we also believe it’s the perfect time to move on and shift our focus to brand new adventures in the city of Villedor.
