The final update of Dying Light was released this week, and the sun finally set in Haran. But thanks to a lot of free content, it jumped to the top of the list of games to play this weekend.
Released in 2015, Dying Light sets itself apart from many other games in the genre due to its Parker action. I’m a big fan of zombies, so I came from behind Dead Island and wanted another hit of the goodness of the undead. And Techland delivered it.
The studio continues to support the game with a stable stream of content after its release, and Dying Light 2 does the same. In March, Dying Light received a free next-generation upgrade for the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. And this final bumper update will bring expansion packs and four DLCs to base game owners for free.
What is included in the free update for Dying Light?
I got the base game done pretty quickly. This is a miracle, given the distractions and tons of unfinished titles. There are no plans to destroy the planet, but it’s fun to parkour around the city, wipe out loot, and kill zombies. And at dawn, it turns into a horror fest.
By then I had moved on to something else so I couldn’t get the DLC or extensions. And returning to the game every time an update drops isn’t what I do. Therefore, this free upgrade to Dying Light Enhanced Edition is justified for diving.
Techland Last updated This week, owners of DyingLight Standard Edition will get the following: This is all free. Please remember.
- Next extension
- Horde of Bossack
- Food and freight
- Ultimate Survivor Bundle
- Crash test skin bundle
The next enhancements include new maps, storylines, and vehicles. The four DLC packs are studded with new game modes, as well as weapons, skins and other content.
Given that my game pool is depleted and anxious for another dose of undead, the giveaway couldn’t come any longer. But what if the sun is shining because of change? Stepping into the enhanced Harran, playing with new weapons and spinning vehicles sounds like a blast.
Hellraid is the only DLC missing from the list, but it has a very different feel to the main game. In this mode you will move to a medieval castle where you will fight hordes of skeletons. It’s fun to look at, but it’s not part of Dying Light’s core experience, so you won’t miss anything important.
This concludes Dying Light. I’ve postponed the Dying Light 2 pickup, but I’m sure it will change as soon as I immerse my toes in the zombie-infested ocean.
