We thought Techland were done with the original Dying Light. Critically acclaimed as one of the greatest zombie games ever created, when the team behind it moved on to Dying Light 2, and delivered a Dying Light: Platinum Edition with all the content you could ever imagine, we thought that was the end of it. But it wasn’t and now Techland have produced the Dying Light Definitive Edition, promising that it really is the end for that game.
Available today to purchase and download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC, with a Nintendo Switch launch occurring at a later date, the Dying Light: Definitive Edition is seen as the grand finale for Techland’s stunner.
It’s priced at £47.99 and comes to market as the ‘full Dying Light experience’. What that means is you’re getting access to the base game plus no less than twenty-six (yes, 26) DLC pieces. These come in the form of skin bundles and expansion packs, with them having dropped over the course of the last seven years.
- Dying Light – the full award-winning game.
- Dying Light: The Following – a huge expansion complete with a new story, vast original map, and a customizable buggy to drive.
- Dying Light: Bozak Horde – a challenging game mode with its own side story.
- Cuisine & Cargo – two additional quarantine zones. Ultimate Survivor Bundle – exclusive weapons and outfits.
- Hellraid – a new game mode in a dark-fantasy setting.
- A large collection of skins and weapons that will make slaughtering zombies even more fun:
- Crash Test skin pack
- 5th Anniversary bundle
- Harran Ranger bundle
- Gun Psycho bundle
- Volatile Hunter bundle
- White Death bundle
- Vintage Gunslinger bundle
- Rais Elite bundle
- Godfather bundle
- Harran Inmate bundle
- Retrowave bundle
- SHU Warrior bundle
- Savvy Gamer bundle
- Snow Ops bundle
- Volkan Combat Armor bundle
- Classified Operation bundle
- Viking: Raiders of Harran bundle
- Harran Tactical Unit bundle
- Wild West bundle
- Winter bundle
- Astronaut bundle
- Van Crane bundle
- Dieselpunk bundle
Further, should you get involved right now – and for up to two weeks from the date of this article – you’ll also get a free Harran Tactical Unit Bundle thrown in.
Better still, if you previously purchased the Platinum Edition of the game, expecting that to be that, then you’ll be able to upgrade to the Definitive Edition for free, with that adding in five new bundles for good measure.
We’re fully expecting Techland to crack on with delivering the content for Dying Light 2 now, and if past history proves anything, we’re expecting that game to continue going from strength to strength too.
Let us know if you decide to go back to the original though. You’ll find Dying Light: Definitive Edition over on the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, the PlayStation Store for PS4 and PS5 and on PC through Steam and Epic. Expect to see it rock up onto Nintendo Switch at some point too.
You can play Dying Light to the fullest with the final version of the acclaimed open world zombie survival game. Containing four mainline DLCs and twenty-two bundles, Dying Light: Definitive Edition is the complete experience that accumulates the entire 7-years worth of lifespan that packs all of its content into one single unit. Explore all the post-apocalyptic world has to offer. Drive across Harran as you spread carnage in your buggy, face and survive Bozak’s trials, explore new quarantine zones, and enjoy plenty of new skins and weapons!
