It's been two years since Dying Light 2 was released and the game has been treated to a "Reloaded" edition. And before you get your pitchforks out about early buyers of the game being thrown under the bus, the Reloaded edition is being given as a free update to existing owners of the Standard edition.

So what exactly is this Reloaded edition, and what does it change? Check out the launch trailer below to find out!

As you can see, the Reloaded Edition adds a fair bit to the game, from offering a free piece of DLC, to including the latest update which adds firearms to the game as a choice of weapon, as well as visual enhancements. Here's a list of the changes the Reloaded Edition will bring:

  • Firearms have been added to the game as a new way to fight the zombie horde.
  • The Bloody Ties DLC is now included with the game.
  • Visuals have been enhanced.
  • Co-Op Survivor Missions and Board Quests have been added.
  • Characters from the 1st Dying Light game now feature in Dying Light 2.

To celebrate the Reloaded Edition, and the game's 2nd anniversary, there will be a special in-game event, with special bounties available at the Pilgrim Outpost, as well as other in-game surprises.

That's not all, between now and February 26th, Dying Light 2 will be free to play, allowing you to get a taste of the game. Any progress you make in the game can be carried over if you decide to purchase the game after the free weekend.

Dying Light 2 is currently Free To Play on Steam until the 26th, before reverting to its usual $59.99 price tag. The game is "Verified" on Steam Deck, according to Valve's testing. We found in our own review that the game ran well on the Steam Deck too. So you can buy with confidence!
