Following the recent announcement of Dying Light’s physical copies being delayed in Europe, Techland has confirmed that the game will now launch at retail on February 27, 2015 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia. As well, every pre-ordered copy of the physical version in those territories will include the Cuisine & Cargo and Ultimate Survivor Bundle DLC packs (which are in the Season Pass) for free.
In terms of other release dates, Dying Light will still launch digitally on January 28, 2015 in Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia. North America, meanwhile, receives it as planned on January 27, 2015 at both retail and digital stores.
As a result of this delay, Techland revealed that the Be the Zombie DLC, which was previously offered as a pre-order bonus, will now be “free on all platforms everywhere.”
The Dying Light team talked about today’s news:
As you already know, today we detailed our launch timing for Dying Light. Although the changes affect only the release of boxed copies in certain territories, we want to show all of you our appreciation for your continued support. Thus, we’re really happy to announce that “Be the Zombie” will be available for free to everyone, on all platforms, in all territories.
We’ll also be giving away extra weapon dockets to everyone who pre-ordered Dying Light and signed up at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com.
We want to thank you for your patience and support in this matter and can’t wait for you to enjoy playing Dying Light and invading other players’ game in the “Be the Zombie” mode.
