Ahead of Dying Light 2, the original Dying Light gets a big event

By - | Views: 12,072

You have to appreciate the effort Techland has put into supporting Dying Light, giving it new updates and events 7 years after release and now a fresh big event is live.

Spike's Story: Last Call follows the events after the death of a major antagonist but there's plenty of bandits left to take care of. They're flooding Harran in a frenzy and they've hit a survivor shelter, which has resulted in many more Virals in your way. Spike has organised a safe zone but many need help getting there. It's time for you to step in and help as many as possible and for your efforts, you will get a special melee weapon — the Crankshaft. You're not alone this time either, as a bunch of friendly survivors in special protection suits will be around to fight with you. Sounds like a Zombie-smashing good time.

The event, which Techland say is only part one, runs until January 28 19:00 CET / 18:00 UTC. We can't show you the trailer, as YouTube decided it was age-restricted and only allows you to watch via YouTube directly - so it's over there if you want to see it.

You can buy Dying Light from Humble Store and Steam.

We'll be checking out Dying Light 2 with Steam Play Proton at release, so stay tuned. Dying Light 2 has pre-orders up on Humble Store and Steam for release on February 4.

Quoting: NanobangDid Steam or Techland announce 100% Proton compatibility ahead of release already?
Nothing has been said about Proton or Steam Deck yet. Hopefully that simply means Techland hasn't tested DL2 on a Deck yet, or have chosen to remain silent for now.

Quoting: SwannyWonder if there is still a remote possibility of native version post release.
I'll have to say no, there's pretty much zero chance at this time. It's releasing for Windows PC and consoles. No Linux, no Mac. The Switch version will be some black magic voodoo cloud thing so it barely counts. :)

If anything, Techland would be interested in making sure DL2 runs as well as it can on the Steam Deck. The listed minimum specs for 1080p30 are 1050Ti/RX560 and the Deck should be fairly close to that, so there's at least a reasonable chance DL2 could do 30+ fps. :)

Thanks dpanter, I appreciate your sharing all that. :)

I wonder if a Google image of male pattern baldness would pass?

Even more curious... What picture would I have to show them should I be a woman? A pic of one's Danielle Steele collection🤪?!?!
