We bring good news for zombie fans today, as Techland has just confirmed that it will release Dying Light sooner than expected. The visceral game will launch on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia, as opposed to its originally announced February release window.
Those who pre-order Dying Light through its official website will be gifted with bonus DLC called Be the Zombie. By activating it, players will unlock the opportunity to enter others’ games as a Night Hunter – a powerful creature with nearly unrivalled skills.
As a fan of zombie games and the Dead Island franchise, I can’t wait to play through this spiritual successor, with its parkour and day/night cycles. What I demoed at E3 was fantastic, so much so that the game ended up winning one of my personal Game of Show awards.
Tell us, will you be picking up Dying Light once it launches? Sound off below!
