Video game publisher & development studio Techland has announced a week-long double-XP event to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Dying Light. Along with double XP, the event will feature giveaways of unique and “previously-unavailable” items including the Rocket League buggy skin. Accompanying the announcement is a nearly minute-and-a-half video featuring anniversary wishes and best memories from fans of the game:
Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka stated: “The last four years have brought not only Dying Light, but also the whole company to a whole new level – our development and publishing teams have grown in people whose passion directly shows in our games. Those talented team members and our dedicated community are a huge part of Techland’s DNA and have inspired us to keep Dying Light alive and running for so long.”
Originally released in 2015, the developer has been supporting the first-person open-world survival horror title ever since. First there was the game-sized DLC The Following in 2016, followed by the “10-in-12” initiative which gave players ten free DLCs over a twelve month period starting in 2017. Finally, last year saw the early access release of standalone multiplayer spinoff title Bad Blood. According to the company, Dying Light has now reached 16 million players.
Marchewka continued: “This approach is reflected in sales, which have not just resisted decline but in fact significantly increased from last year, an unusual feat in the games market. Our tactics of constant community engagement and iteration based on direct feedback from our core players has been integral to this success – taking care to exceed the expectations of those fans and improve the game over time doesn’t just make existing players happy, it infects new audiences too.”
