Physical Dying Light sales overtake The Order and Evolve in UK Charts

In the world of physical game sales, Dying Light is a roaring success despite the download version launching a month ago.

There had been some concern that the delay of the release of the boxed retail version of Techland's zombie kill-'em-up would affect its sales. But it's already outdone two other high-profile games after just two weeks on sale.

UK sales company Chart-Track revealed today that Dying Light has already outsold PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 (launched 20th February) and 2K Games 4v1 shooter Evolve (launched 10th February) after just two weeks on sale in shops - and with the download version going live weeks beforehand.

I'm pleased about this. I decided to hold out for a retail copy, and am thoroughly enjoying the game! It might not be everybody's cup of tea, but it's a very modern, current-gen take on the open-world sandbox experience, with a very immersive and detailed world.

The game looks fun. I watched a friend play it a few days ago and im seriously considering picking it up.

Fro_xoxo2758d ago

Picking up more games huh?

Have you even finished Sunset?
I bet you're gonna get Ori next week..

Now you're talking 'bout Dying light ^_^.

DL does look good, I'm a sucker for free movement.
my eyes are on Mirrors Edge reboot.

@the fro

What can i say,i love gaming but im a lazy hardly have time to play them all.still got a tonne of unfinished games on my xbox 360 and ps3. I actually think my nephew may have started lending them out to his

If you like Mirror's Edge (I for one consider it the most underrated game of last-gen, purely on its gameplay!), then you'll find Dying Light to be amazing.

If the Mirror's Edge reboot can do open-world parkour half as well as Dying Light does it, then they're onto a winner.

While the Dying Light controls are a bit strange (took me a good few hours to get used to them), the actual gameplay is highly enjoyable and it encourages you to take risks.

Great to see a superior game in terms of quality and content beating out inferior games in one or both categories.

Yeah, but they killed split screen after advertising the f*** out of it :/ 4 player too..

Clown_Syndr0me2757d ago

Split screen would be nice but online coop is a step back in the right direction.
As I get older I find myself wanting to play less competitive games and more cooperative. I miss games like Left 4 Dead and Rainbow Six Vegas.

Dying Light best game I've played this gen so far.

It's perfection.

A mix of Far Cry, Mirror Edge, Resident Evil and Evolve. I already put in 55 hours and still not done.

This game is truly a must have game.

Don't forget Minecraft!

I'm not kidding, I refuse to admit that the guy's behind Dying Light weren't inspired by Minecraft's game-changing day-night cycle!
