Developer Techland has announced that the original Dying Light Platinum Edition is finally coming to Nintendo Switch. A specific release date has yet to be announced, because “more details are coming soon.” Meanwhile, the sequel is preparing for a launch of its own on December 7th, though not on Switch.
This announcement came at the end of Techland’s “Dying Light 2 Stay Human — Dying 2 Know: Episode 3 Gamescom Edition” presentation at Gamescom. Naturally, most of the video was dedicated to detailing the upcoming sequel. The presentation filled just short of twenty minutes with tasty new info for fans. Dying Light 2 is set to unleash new horrors just before the holidays.
The original Dying Light has earned quite a few fans for itself. They live on a range of platforms from PC, to the Xbox, PlayStation 4, and soon the Switch. Adding to the fun, players can get together online to take down the undead with the help of their friends. Players can run and use parkour to traverse the dying city in a desperate fight against a strange and terrible virus.
Dying Light Platinum Edition for the Nintendo Switch will also have a special physical edition, too. The package comes with a few extra goodies. As you can see in the video, it includes a handy survival guide, maps, and some special stickers. The Platinum Edition first appeared on the Xbox and PS4 with all DLC included. Techland says you’ll get 100+ hours of gameplay out of a single playthrough. So it will keep you busy for a long while. For a deeper look at the game itself, check out our review.
