Zombie-parkour hit Dying Light has celebrated its fifth birthday with another batch of content, developer Techland has announced.
New Dying Light DLC For 5th Anniversary
Techland has added a new Story Mode difficulty that allows players to complete the campaign with relative ease ahead of the release of the highly anticipate Dying Light 2.According to the studio, the new mode is designed for “everyone to be able to enjoy Dying Light to the full, regardless of their skill level and experience with action games.”
If that wasn’t enough, Techland has a number of in-game events planned for Dying Light today and March 19, including a free-to-play weekend for the Steam version of the game. In addition, we’re promised “fan-favourite” events will be returning alongside “a few surprises.”
Finally, there’s new paid DLC up for grabs in the shape of the 5th Anniversary Bundle. This includes two new melee weapons and an extra Shotgun, with the pipe inflicting +50% damage after three or more hits, while the Shotgun features 50% faster reload time, increased damage size, and bullet speed.
Last year, Techland revealed that it was still working on Dying Light DLC, so presumably this is what it was referring to.
Dying Light was released in January 2015 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and has received extensive support from Techland ever since. The game sold five million copies by August 2015. Dying Light 2 was recently delayed beyond its spring 2020 window, and currently does not have a concrete release date.
