Dying Light launched for Nintendo Switch this October, more than six years after its original debut on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It includes the base game as well as additional DLC including the superb expansion, The Following, as well as the fantasy themed Hellraid.

Here’s what we had to say about this newest version of the popular hit:

“All in all, Dying Light Switch is a technically impressive port. Techland has made clever cuts to retain everything great about the survival horror hit and whether you’re looking to revisit the game or coming to it completely fresh ahead of Dying Light 2’s release in February, this Switch release is well worth considering.”

But what about the sequel?

Dying Light 2 Stay Human launches February 4th, 2022. on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. There’s a new promotional site that will let you discover what type of zombie you would become, and also reveals more about these new monsters.
