Techland has added microtransactions to Dying Light 2

Techland has released Update 1.12 for Dying Light 2: Stay Human which adds microtransactions to the game. Dying Light 2 came out in February 2022, meaning that it took Techland over a year in order to add microtransactions to it.

This is a huge disappointment for a lot of Dying Light fans. We should also note that Tencent acquired Techland recently, so we don’t know if this has anything to do with this predatory monetization tactic.

Right now, the game has Mixed Reviews on Steam (though its overall status still remains Mostly Positive). And yeah, this sucks since a lot of PC gamers supported both Dying Light games.

Techland currently gives away free 500 DL Points that players need to redeem by October 7th. However, it appears that most of the stuff that you can purchase via the in-game store cost more than 500 DL Points. So basically, you won’t be able to get anything useful with these free points.

Anyway, alongside these microtransactions, Patch 1.12 for Dying Light 2 adds a Brutality Level. As such, players now have the option to select between Full, Limited, and Minimum brutality settings in the Preferences.

Lastly, the Dying Light 2 Patch 1.12 comes with a number of gameplay and co-op fixes. It also brings some technical fixes, UI tweaks, and resolves some crashes.
