Techland has revealed the updated global launch dates for Dying Light.
Bit annoyed that it's been delayed personally.
Have to agree there. Was hoping to grab a physical copy on launch day.
I think sales of The Order 1886 could eat into Dying Light PS4 sales.
Well the physical copy release on January 27th for PS4, almost a month before the order 1886
The digital release is January 27th. The physical release is February 27th - 7 days after The Order: 1886 releases. So I can totally see how physical sales will suffer since most people will be too engaged in that game to care.
@Neonridr the article says that in North and South America the physical copy will release the same day as the digital. January 27th. Sorry for the rest of the world but avengers1978 is right at least in the Americas
Only in the USA. Everywhere else in the world the physical disc is delayed for about a month. I should have specified that in my first comment though.
Other way around
I would've bought this game, but now I'm going to be playing the order. And then March is bloodborne and other releases, January was to be a perfect lead up to order /886 , I just won't have time, I'm sure it's the same for plenty of others
Watched someone stream it on PS4 today. I can't believe Troy Baker is the main character in this game as well. Kinda feel bad for the other voice actors out there. Game looked pretty sweet, might pick it up next year though. I am outta money for games at the moment.
y he's so good i want him in every game. sorry for being a bit cruel but still...
Mega annoyed here, whats up with such a long delay when its only shipment problems, wird...not gonna buy it now i think, for sure not the digital copy, i vant to be able to sell it after.
jus buy it digital then
Guys i have a quick question so if i purchase the steam key version of this game from the UK will i be able to redeem it on january 28th or??? sorry just a little confused.
Digital release date is unaffected. Only if you want to buy a physical disc copy. You will be fine to purchase a Steam key and redeem it on January 27th or 28th, or whenever you are ready to play the game.
Thanks for that just thought if it would be better to get it digital instead of waiting an addition month.
@ xTheMercenary_ NO -the Digital copy for PC will be 27th... worldwide.. "a worldwide digital release on PC as of January 27" -So for digital no delay- PC 27th everywhere - and digital PS4 & Xone 27th in north and south America - and non-U.S. Jan 28th So Only the physical copies is what is really delayed. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
Thanks buddy, appreciate the help.
More like delayed the physical copy too see if they can get more people flocking to digital
I doubt it, I remember a worse release problem when Payday 2 came out. It only came out on time for the PS3 and PC, the x360 was totally forgotten about, and that's how those devs treated the game post-release. I think this is just Warner Brothers dropping the ball in these areas. For a while it was supposed to be a full multi-plat game with old-gen and current-gen releases. Maybe that tripped them up, who knows. But either way, this gen has proven going all digital may be still problematic. Lack of HD space, and digital is still priced at retail value. That's a big red flag at least for me.
The folks who buy digital copies will have had a month to practice their invasion skills and prey on the physical copy owners in multiplayer (outside the Americas). Could get interesting, huh?
Well I for one will wait a month. There's no way in hell im paying those digital prices & be stuck with it when complete. I will get the order on release & buy this 2nd hand now, so they've lost a sale from me.' Just hope folk don't get impatient & buy this digital or it could become the norm.
Oh well here comes the influx of imports, i'll be getting the yank version for sure....im not waiting a whole extra month for aus version, fuck that!
i cancelled my physical pre-order.... & found a £50 PSN voucher on ebay for £35! (private seller) so went digital on this game :)
