A MONTH FULL OF EVENTS
A month full of both global and local community events starts today, and will last until March 19. Expect fan favorites to make a comeback, and a few surprises!
The community rewards will include a brand new new weapon blueprint, C4—a throwable explosive that sticks to surface—and a surprise outfit.
ANNIVERSARY BUNDLE FULL OF UPGRADED WEAPONS
Available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the 5th Anniversary Bundle for Dying Light offers gear worthy of a Harran Veteran. Along with an outfit you’ll receive a new buggy paint job (Veteran’s Ride) and blueprints for three new weapons:
- a brand new pipe – consecutive hits boost damage +50% after 3 or more hits;
- a new sledgehammer;
- a brand new double-barreled shotgun – with 50% faster reload speed, increased damage size and bullet speed: can shoot both shells at once to produce a “malfunctioning effect”, packs a heavy punch;
The DLC is available on PC, and consoles for $2.99.
|A BRAND NEW DIFFICULTY MODE|
