DYING LIGHT Getting Limited-Time LEFT 4 DEAD 2 Crossover Content!
If any game deserves mad props, it’s Dying Light. Not only is it leaps and bounds (ha, parkour jokes) above their previous title Dead Island, but Dying Light still surprises us with new updates four years after it launched. Dying Light 2 is less than a year away, and Techland is still delivering content for fans of the original. And above all that, it’s free! So like I said, mad props Dying Light/Techland.
As a surprise Halloween special, Dying Light is delivering a limited-time Left 4 Dead 2 crossover event. Players will try to survive zombie hordes with new melee weapons and plentiful firearms in a clear homage to L4D2‘s iconic frantic gameplay. Players that complete the event will be rewarded with special golden blueprints for the new weapons, with standard versions available to all players after the event concludes.
For more information, here’s the Official Press Release:
Techland and Valve have teamed up for a homage to the critically acclaimed cooperative first person-shooter, Left 4 Dead 2, by creating a 4 day crossover event within Techland’s huge hit Dying Light.
In this 4 day event commencing October 24, 2019, Zombie slayers will experience an increased number of Virals, waves of attacking hordes, an intensifying fight for survival, along with an increased amount of guns and ammo at your disposal.
Those who complete the challenges will be rewarded with three event exclusive Gold blueprints that will let them craft the following iconic Left 4 Dead 2 weapons (Electric Guitar, Frying Pan, and Golf Club) to use in Dying Light.
The four day event starts on October 24th, and will be available for both PC and console players. After the event concludes the standard blueprints for the Left 4 Dead 2 weapons will be available as a free DLC.
