Techland has announced that the retail version of Dying Light will be available on the 27th of February in Europe, Asia, Australia, and all other countries in which the retail version was delayed. The producer announced the delay last week, with North America being one of the few places that weren't affected by it.
To compensate fans for this delay, Techland revealed that the multiplayer mode Be The Zombie will be available for free for everyone. This multiplayer mode was previously announced as a pre-order bonus.
"Dear gamers, as you already know, today we detailed our launch timing for Dying Light. Although the changes affect only the release of boxed copies in certain territories, we want to show all of you our appreciation for your continued support. Thus, we're really happy to announce that 'Be the Zombie' will be available for free to everyone, on all platforms, in all territories," said Techland.
"We'll also be giving away extra weapon dockets to everyone who pre-ordered Dying Light and signed up at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com. We want to thank you for your patience and support in this matter and can't wait for you to enjoy playing Dying Light and invading other players' game in the 'Be the Zombie' mode."
The digital version of Dying Light will launch worldwide on the 27th of January on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The retail version will also be available in North America on the same day.
