Dying Light’s Second Season Pass Content Drop and Free Hard Mode Update Coming Next Week

DyingLight

Next week, on Tuesday, March 10, Dying Light survivors will be treated to two updates.

For starters, Season Pass owners will get to download the Ultimate Survivor Bundle containing three new character outfits (Ninja, Urban Explorer, and Special Agent) and blueprints for four new weapons (The Constable, Night Club, Lacerator, and Buzz Killer). No, not very exciting, but it’s something. I guess. (BTW, what good are outfits in a first-person game when you don’t even see your character?)

Non-Season Pass owners will be able to buy the pack separately for $4.99.

Free for all Dying Light players, next Tuesday’s patch bringing the game up to version 1.4 is of far greater consequence. This update will introduce a more challenging and realistic Hard Mode, an extra tier to weapon rarity level, dozens of new weapons, additional endgame completion rewards, more character outfits, and a host of technical improvements to give gameplay balance, online functionality, graphics quality, and overall performance a healthy boost.

It’s kind of sad that content included in a free update is way more valuable than paid-for DLC included as part of a Season Pass. But alas that’s the DLC age we leave in.
