Dying Light: Physical Copies Delayed In SA

Fans looking forward to purchasing a retail copy of Dying Light will have to wait just a little bit longer…

Techland’s upcoming zombie-survival-parkour game Dying Light has been delayed beyond its original release date of 30 January.

However, this delay only effects the physical versions of the game. The title will still release on digital platforms on Tuesday, 27 January. So you will still be able to download the game through PSN, Xbox Live or Steam next week.

“There will be a short delay in the release of physical copies of Dying Light in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia,” a statement from developer Techland posted to the game’s official Facebook page explained.

“The game will have a global digital release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC of January 27, 2015. As physical production has a longer lead time than digital there is some delay in the aforementioned territories.

“We will share information on the availability of physical copies as soon as it is confirmed.”

In Dying Light, players are required to traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning’s first light.

    This game looks nuts! Although it looks like game developers have gotten lazy. Zombies, parkour, Middle East, terrorist faction… That’s pretty much the most searched things on YouTube.
