Techland will supposedly be bringing Dying Light: Platinum Edition to the Nintendo Switch this October, according to ppe.pl via Nintendo Everything. This version includes all of the DLC from the first game in one "complete" package. All up, that's four major DLCs and 17 skin bundles.
The survival horror zombie shooter was originally released on PC and multiple other platforms in 2015 and contains co-op play for up to four people. The Switch release will apparently be available in digital and physical form for $49.99 USD and hard copies will include a map, survival guide and stickers. Here's a look:
Here's a general outline, along with an older trailer of the Platinum Edition:
Rove an infected world where only the strongest will make it. Master your combat skills to fight monsters of all kinds, both human and the undead. Parkour through the roofs, craft weapons, and help other survivors while you’re confronting your own nightmares.
Now you can enjoy Dying Light to the fullest with the richest version of the acclaimed open world zombie survival game. Containing four DLCs and seventeen skin bundles, Dying Light: Platinum Edition brings together everything you need to explore all the post-apocalyptic world has to offer. Drive across Harran, as you spread carnage in your buggy, face and survive Bozak’s trials, explore new quarantine zones, and enjoy plenty of new skins and weapons!

Looks too good. Has to be shown on a Switch Pro clearly. /s
It would be pretty awesome to have a complete physical edition with ALL DLC on Switch. My understanding is that the game isn't that big either (about 25GB on PC), and the size will shrink even more after the assets have been scaled down for Switch.
Doesn't look like my cup of tea, but this release looks like a winner for the fans.
That was a surprise
The zombie parkour game coming to Switch with DLC and no partial cartridge? Neat!
Most likely this was released early if Nintendo Life is reporting on it, but Nintendo Everything’s source was also ppe.pl and ppe.pl’s source was just considered one of their readers.
Shouldn’t this be marked as a rumor? Anyone that can use Photoshop well can make these advertisements.
@Haruki_NLI New Switch Pro One X
Great game, would be awesome to have on Switch. I’ll be interested to hear about how it performs…
Sweet! Never played this so I hope it runs well.
Just to play it safe, I've updated this story with a rumour tag.
gonna buy dying light for the 3rd time like dragons dogma dark arisen
@IronMan30 New Switch Pro One X 5 !!!
Pretty sweet if this is true. Never played it before but would check it out if it's coming to Switch.
This is a genuinely unexpected port. I really dug Dying Light on PC though. It stands out from most games involving zombie outbreaks with its open world approach and empahsis on movement and parkour specficially
I dread to think the cutbacks they made to get this on Switch, it was originally going to be on 360/PS3 but they cancelled those versions because they couldn't handle the game and well the Switch isn't that far above them. Its also not the polished game on PS4 either. That said its a fantastic game, maybe the best open world zombie game out there so if they managed to get it on Switch in a TW3 style port then great.
Day 1. I’m in on OLED
If it is a good port this could be pretty cool, there aren't an enormous amount of zombie games on switch like there are on other platforms.
That looks awesome. Is this game any good with single player mode or is it like left 4 dead and needs players?
Since when does Nintendo life have ads before their videos???? Looks like my time is running out here. Also, they really need a switch pro to thoroughly enjoy games like this on the go. Docked may not be too bad.
@AG_Awesome you can definitely beat it by yourself, but it is fun playing in co-op.
I have a great time playing this on PlayStation, so this would have been a must buy the day it comes out (if real), but with the sequel dying light 2 stay human coming out in December, this only seems good for people who haven’t played the game.
Definitely getting this for the OLED.
@WallyWest The best version is not on any console, but on PC at 4K/60.
I bought it on PC last week for 8 bucks on sale as it's superior to console versions.
I owned Dying Light on Xbox One since release.
Oh heck yes! This game is actually so bloody badass! Amazing endgame and the main character is voiced by Mirage from Apex Legends
@Silly_G assets scaled down?
It might have different compression.
I love Dying Light! Played it back in 2015 when it came out. I purchased the Anniversary Edition earlier this year to play again on my PS5. Gyro controls, portability, and local wireless play? I'll buy 2 copies on day 1. I'll play this on my Switch OLED after Metroid Dread of course! October seems like a stacked month for Switch with this, Metroid Dread, and Mario Party! Can't wait!
Finally something that isn't a Japanese animation style game!
Brilliant game on PS4, bit concerned how it will port to the Switch, its proper AAA.
Back when this first released the reviews were a bit tepid, so I torrented it to make my own mind up on it.
I LOVED it, so I bought it and convinced some friends to buy it, too.
Now I'm about to buy it again for Switch.
Hope the sequel is good, from what I've heard the development has been very rocky.
Loved this game on PS4 way back when! Highly recommended for anyone who hasn't played it.
I dont have high hopes for this on the Switch though. Maybe I'll be surprised.
I have a soft spot for this game since it was the first I did QA on. I thought it was horrible and badly optimized. A year later I was put on doing QA for The Following expansion and boy, all those bad games I tested throughout the year made me appreciate how stable Dying Light was and Techland's built-in reporting tool.
The only sore thing about it is that they didn't put my name in the credits while they put in a colleague who was on the project for like 2 days. I don't remember if it was some sort of mess with paperwork my company would do or what, but that's still bothers me.
The game itself is ok, as long as you remember you're supposed to run from the zombies, especially in the early game. Fighting them before you get good weapons is a good way to get yourself swarmed. Just get the EXPcalibur for those early unavoidable fights.
I may triple dip. Bought this edition for $20 on the Xbox. Originally had it on PS4 when it came out, but if everything is on the cart, I’ll grab it.
I already have this on my laptop so no interest in this version but it's cool that it's so portable tho
@progx why is it so cheap on Xbox? On the UK store it's 30! Only reason I got it for pc instead
@huyi there was a sale in the US a couple of months ago. I’ve been moving 3rd party games over to my Xbox. I didn’t have the full experience on the PS4 anyway, so it was a huge gain for me. Could have been $30 because it’s normally $99.99
Complete game with DLC on a cart for $49.99? This sounds too good to be true.
@Mountain_Man huh, it's cheaper on other platforms honestly
@progx yeah that's what I mean it launched at 90 but now the price has stuck around 30, it is on sale often tho so it's not bad, I just choose to get it for pc for the mods I have og disc version on ps4 tho so it's was a no brainer to get it for pc with how many times I've completed it on ps4
@huyi I'm not interested in other platforms.
@Mountain_Man your choice I guess 🤷♀️🤷♀️
This isn't hard to believe. If they could get DOOM Eternal on Switch I expect pretty much any FPS pre 2020 to be portable. Looking forward to how it plays and looks. Great Zombie game.
@huyi It's not portable on other platforms
@Bizzyb People really need to learn that just because one game can be ported fine doesn't mean others can. Dying Light has a big giant open world('s) and more systems at play, it also has a completely different engine so no it isn't like porting Doom a linear game with an engine what can be scaled back easily to run on less powerful hardware.
One of the best co-op games ever. Loved this one on Xbox. Cross-play would be nice...
@AG_Awesome The whole campaign is designed to play solo or with friends. It's not like a L4D style game at all other than there are zombies.
The drop in and drop out works ace too and is much more fun with friends.
Great game. Started playing it on PS4, then bought it again to play on series X and now I fear that I may buy it a third time to play on Switch...if it runs well (pun intended).
@huyi "your choice I guess"
Thank you for your permission.
@WallyWest They put Skyrim and Witcher 3 on Switch. I understand the concept of different engines and mechanics but I'm saying it's not impossible.
There may be compromises and concessions but it can be done with proper programming and optimization. That's my point.
This was a game I played back then and loved! It's like if Dead Island was actually a fun single player experience. Might be giving this a go, feels like a game I'll like more a second time.
I hope this is real! Day one for me!
I would play this ALL over again if it does come out. Dying Light is an awesome game!
Yawn. I was so sure after Ubisoft had some success with Mario + Rabbids that we were gonna see some proper support from companies instead of an endless stream of old games. How wrong/naive I was.
It says Local Co-op, anyone know if that means split screen?
@veesonic I would always assume nowadays if it says local co-op they mean local wireless with two switches. Been burned by a lot of games that claim local co-op but isn't same console coop
Its going to look horrible. Plus drift will make the parkour a nightmare.. Might not be too bad looking in handheld. But on screen....
@veesonic PS4 and Xbox One don't have splitscreen. So, not really going to happen.
