Techland has decided that the time has come to wind down active development on Dying Light, but not without a parting gift for the community, especially those who have yet to venture into the wilds of Harran. The team will release Dying Light Definitive Edition tomorrow, June 9th, as a way to mark 7 years of the game’s success and popularity.
The Definitive Edition of the much-loved zombie apocalypse adventure will contain the base game and all 26 DLCs, which include all skin bundles and expansion packs. In addition, it will make its digital debut on the store of your preferred platform with a discount of up to 70%. Those playing on Nintendo Switch will have to wait a little longer though, as a digital and retail version of Dying Light Definitive Edition will come out for Switch owners at a later date.
The bumper game pack will also include a brand new free DLC in the Harran Tactical Unit Bundle, which will only be available for two weeks after the launch of Dying Light Definitive Edition. Those who already own the Platinum Edition of Dying Light will receive a free upgrade to the Definitive Edition.
In a press release, Techland thanked the community for their “immense love and support” for the game, before explaining that they felt the time was right to wind down active development for the original game in the franchise, presumably to concentrate further on Dying Light 2: Stay Human.
Once again, we couldn’t be happier with the amount of success and awe-inspiring memories this game has brought us – primarily because of our wonderful community. And yet, we also feel it’s the perfect time to move on and shift our focus towards brand-new adventures in the city of Villedor.Techland
However, the developers did tease that this may not entirely be the end for the original game, promising a “steady reroll of previous events” for players to take part in and also promising to “never say never” when it comes to adventures in Harran. Regardless, if you’re yet to play Dying Light, now could be the best time to grab 7 years’ worth of content in one big bundle.
