'Dying Light' (ALL) Celebrates 5th Anniversary With Freebie And In-Game Event Next Month

Dying Light is a first-person, action survival horror video game with a portentous day-night cycle set in a vast open world.

During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning's first light.

Exactly five years ago today Dying Light, Techland’s action survival game set in a post-apocalyptic open world overrun by the infected, was published. Since then, Techland has treated their community to continuous support including the critically acclaimed The Following expansion, numerous DLCs, and regular in-game events. 

“With five years behind us, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the support, feedback, and faith you keep on giving us. We really couldn’t have hoped for a better community. You have been and, continue to be, an incredible source of inspiration and joy. We assure you, even though we are working hard on Dying Light 2, our support of the original Dying Light will continue. There’s nothing more valuable to us than seeing a positive response from our fans. It’s humbling, it gives us perspective, and purpose to keep on going. Thank you again from the whole team!,” says Paweł Marchewka, CEO at Techland.

This is just a tease for the Dying Light anniversary celebrations planned for February, with new content, an in-game event, and more.
