Dying Light Sixth Anniversary Celebrated with Free Weekend on Steam, Event and Bundle

Game developer Techland is currently celebrating the 6th anniversary of popular video game Dying Light and with it a limited-time in-game Zombie Hunt Event.

The Zombie Hunt Event is where players must help survivors of Harran fend off a group of undead GRE operatives. During the upcoming weekend, PC players will have the chance to download the Standard Edition of the game for free for the whole weekend. There is also a new Harran Tactical Unit Bundle that is available for purchase, which includes new weapons, shields, and buggy skins. The Zombie Hunt Event and bundle are now available today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The Free Weekend offers the Standard Edition for free for the weekend starting Thursday, February 25 until Monday, March 1. This is only available for PC owners. Progress gained during the Free Weekend will be transferred to the full game when purchased.

During the 2-week Zombie Hunt event, the city of Harran will be terrorized by the undead GRE operatives whose bodies have become mutated and extra resilient due to a special “GREcipe” boost potion. As a result, Crane is tasked with rescuing the endangered survivors and retrieving extra supplies, with the player having the opportunity to receive in-game rewards – including a blueprint for their very own GREcipe potion – based on their success.

The new Harran Tactical Unit Bundle is deployed to deal with high-risk situations and fight zombies in a special unit style. Not just in appearance, but with the right tools. Bundle contains the following items:

  • “Protector” Armor Skin, which boosts movement during night
  • “Guardian” Rifle with burst fire mode
  • “Dispatcher” Shotgun
  • “HyperArgument” Double-handed hammer with hyper-mode effect
  • “Four-Wheeler” Buggy skin with police light

The Harran Tactical Unit Bundle is available to purchase for for $2.99 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
