With apparently no previous warning, developer Techland is bringing open-world survival horror game Dying Light: Platinum Edition to Nintendo Switch sometime in October 2021, where it will retail for $49.99 / €49.99. The game originally launched in 2015, with the Platinum Edition arriving this past May on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. This new edition of the game includes the four main DLC packs, 17 skin bundles, and more weapons. These are the highlights of what you can expect in Dying Light: Platinum Edition on Nintendo Switch:
- Dying Light – the full award-winning game.
- Dying Light: The Following – a huge expansion complete with a new story, vast original map, and a customizable buggy to drive.
- Dying Light: Bozak Horde – a challenging game mode with its own side story.
- Cuisine & Cargo – two additional quarantine zones.
- Ultimate Survivor Bundle – exclusive weapons and outfits.
- Crash Test Skin Pack – a madcap cosmetic pack.
- Hellraid – a new game mode in a dark-fantasy setting.
- A large collection of skins and weapons that will make slaughtering zombies even more fun
As you can see in the above image, boxed copies of the Nintendo Switch release of Dying Light: Platinum Edition will include a map, a survival guide, and stickers, which are nice perks for a $50 game. It will also apparently support HD Rumble, gyroscopic and motion controls, touchscreen use, and local and online co-op. If this Switch port can maintain the quality of the critically acclaimed original release, Nintendo players should be in for a treat.
Meanwhile, Dying Light 2: Stay Alive is coming to other, not-Switch platforms this December.
