The action game got so many love previously on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms is finally headed to the Nintendo Switch. Specifically, that game is from developer Techland – Dying Light. The arrival of the original game on Switch is something that fans have been asking about for quite some time; while the upcoming sequel, Dying Light 2, seemingly won’t be heading to the platform any time soon.
Within recent days on Dying Light’s official Twitter account associated with the game, Techland confirmed the release of Dying Light on Nintendo Switch. Specifically, the studio revealed that the version that would be heading over to Switch is Dying Light Platinum Edition. Notably, this iteration of the game contains all of the added pieces of DLC and expansion content that were released after the initial launch of Dying Light all the way back in 2014. Basically, this iteration will give you everything that you could be looking for if you haven’t played the title before.
Techland is releasing a special physical version of Dying Light that may interest collectors while the game on Switch will be sold in a digital capacity. This physical iteration will come in a unique box that will contain the game itself, a large map, a “survival guide” that features a number of callbacks to the game, and stickers associated with the title.
At this point in time, we’ve got no idea when DyingLight will be coming to Nintendo Switch. A rumor teased that October will be the window in which the game will arrive. But the company has yet to publicly confirm this. Whenever a more specific release date is given, we’ll be sure to update you here.
Are you going to look to play DyingLight on Nintendo Switch?
Hours after Microsoft’s Xbox Series S console widely leaked, the company has gone on the record to confirm its existence. In a tweet, Microsoft describes the Xbox Series S as offering “next-gen performance in the smallest Xbox ever” and lists the price as the previously leaked figure of $299. In the UK it’ll cost £249.99. It’s coming November 10th, the company revealed in a new trailer later in the day.
With this price point, Microsoft is making an aggressive entry into the next-generation console wars and will likely undercut the PS5 on pricing. Further, we can likely speculate that the Series X should come in at either $499 or possibly $599, based on the pricing of this console.
The accompanying image gives a better look at the Series S than the first leaked picture, showing off how thin it is and confirming the lack of a disc drive. As with the leaked imagery, the Series S is pictured standing upright, but the orientation of the Xbox logo suggests it’s expected to be more commonly used in a traditional horizontal configuration.
That’s about all for the announcement right now — Microsoft says it will share more information “soon.”
👀 Let’s make it official!
Xbox Series S | Next-gen performance in the ˢᵐᵃˡˡᵉˢᵗ Xbox ever. $299 (ERP).
Later in the day, the company shared this trailer:
Windows Central reports that both the Series X and Series S will launch on November 10th, with the previously announced high-end Series X selling for $499. As The Verge has previously reported, the Series S (codenamed Lockhart) is designed to play next-gen games in a smaller, cheaper package with less GPU power and lower resolution output than the Series X.
