More often lately we are seeing game companies stepping up to the plate in aiding people around the world. Back in January, Bungie, the creators of the Destiny franchise, launched a campaign to assist those effected by the wildfires in Australia. Recently Techland, the developers behind Dying Light, announced that the sales from their Vintage Gunslinger DLC pack would assist the COVID-19 relief effort.
The Dying Light DLC bundle
The bundle itself gives you the means to lay down the law in Dying Light‘s post-apocalyptic world. The bundle includes a buggy skin – which is only usable if you have the DLC – and also gives you the sheriff’s outfit. In addition, you get 3 weapon blueprints including a shotgun, a revolver and a knife. These blueprints are only skins for the weapons and purely cosmetic.
Dying Light will be donating the profits made from the Vintage Gunslinger DLC until April 7. The bundle can be found here, and the base game is sale right now.
Dying Light in 2020
Dying Light has been one of those games that just gets better with time. I have purchased and played it on four separate consoles and PCs, which speaks for itself. The emphasis on parkour and melee combat really set Dying Light apart from the massive amount of other zombie games from the get go, and while other games have adapted parts of the formula, this one still stands out for me.
Recently, around the same time Dying Light celebrated its five-year anniversary, I picked up the game again. My buddy and I spent hours running on rooftops and drop-kicking zombies. The gameplay mechanics still hold up, and the game is just so atmospheric.
Over the past 5 years, Dying Light has also gotten a bunch of free content updates, adding new events and blueprints. With Dying Light 2 set to release later this year, I plan on replaying Dying Light again, all while rocking a cowboy hat and a revolver.
