Is “Gratis” the most beautiful word in Spanish? Without a doubt, yes. And is “free game on the Epic Games Store” the best phrase we’re going to hear today? Absolutely. Especially when we already have a leak of the new game that will appear on the web next April 6 at five o’clock in the afternoon. A classic that, if you have not played, you will enjoy while watching out for zombies around you: ‘Dying light: The Following – Enhanced Edition’!
Day, night and zombies
After surprising with ‘Dead Island’, the Techland team wanted to repeat with zombies… but the resulting game had little to do with the fun of that one. Dying light’ is a mixture of survival horror and parkour (in other words: allowing you to fight or flee) in which the day and night cycle changes the experience completely: the zombies, with light, are slow and clumsy, and with darkness, extremely aggressive.
The game was released in January 2015 and was the best seller of the month: in fact, by now it has already sold more than 20 million units without taking into account those of its expansion (‘The Following’) and its 2022 sequel (‘Stay Human’). The ingredients were pure success: open world, first-person perspective, desert cities and zombies. Ah! And also a cooperative multiplayer. Who gives more for less?
If the rumors are true, on April 6 you will be able to play the definitive edition of ‘Dying Light’ for free, which includes its expansion and all the DLC. If you haven’t yet entered Techland’s world, this is the perfect preparation for ‘Dead Island 2’… Although this time they’re not the developers. At zero cost, there’s not much to complain about.
