Nintendo Switch Gets Dying Light Platinum Edition

As we inch closer to the launch of Dying Light 2 (may it not get delayed again), the time has come for Switch players to experience the full glory of the first game. Yes, Dying Light Platinum Edition is now available on the Nintendo Switch, and it includes all the extra content it comes with. You can see a list of all the things this edition includes along with the base game below.

  • Dying Light: The Following – a huge expansion complete with a new story, vast original map, and a customizable buggy to drive.
  • Dying Light: Bozak Horde – a challenging game mode with its own side story.
  • Cuisine & Cargo – two additional quarantine zones.
  • Ultimate Survivor Bundle – a set of exclusive weapons and outfits.
  • Hellraid – a new game mode that takes place in a dark-fantasy setting.
  • A large collection of skins and weapons that will make slaughtering zombies even more fun.

Now, that’s all well and fine, but the launch isn’t without its hiccups. As a Techland employee said on Reddit, the fact that Dying Light is banned in Germany has been messing with the availability of the digital version of the game. Why? Well, because the European eShop is officially registered in Germany, so the knock-on effect of that is that you can’t get the game digitally anywhere in Europe, and also Australia and New Zealand. Techland is working on fixing the situation, fortunately; until then, you can buy the physical version of the game normally in all countries. Except in Germany, of course.
