Dying Light Platinum Edition Shambles on Switch in October
Dying Light Platinum Edition is heading to Switch soon.
Out of nowhere, developer Techland announced that Dying Light Platinum Edition will drop to Nintendo Switch in October. Spotted by both All Nintendo and EAR, this ultimate edition of the game will contain the main game, its four DLC expansions and 17 skin packs for $ 49.99. A physical edition will come with a map of the slums and the old town, along with a survivor guide and stickers.
Since Nintendo’s hybrid platform has some unique features, Dying Light will also support HD rumble, gyro aiming, motion controls, touchscreen for menu navigation and online co-op / local. It looks like a relatively sturdy package, although the price can be a bit off-putting for such a late port. Even so, having spontaneous co-op with four systems could be a great way to revisit this title ahead of Dying Light 2’s release.
While it’s certainly exciting to see Dying Light coming to the Switch, I’d like to know if all of this content is contained on the cartridge. It would be a shame if most DLC were relegated to eShop code which might become useless in the future. In the past, many publishers have required fairly large downloads of Switch games for cartridge owners, virtually nullifying all physical editing. Goodies like a card and stickers are cool, but they really don’t make up for the lack of a full version.
In any case, October should prove to be a stacked month for Switch’s release.
