Dying Light Walkthrough

Dying Light is an action survival game presented in first-person perspective. The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created. At night, the hunter becomes the prey as the infected grow in strength and aggression – but even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their hives to feed. You will need to make use of all your skills and any available means to survive till dawn.

Key Game Features:

  • Welcome to the Quarantine – Experience an original and intense story set in an infected city cut off from the outside world. Only the fittest have any hope of survival.
  • Vast Open World – Dying Light lets you traverse an extensive world plunged into chaos and destruction. In this diverse environment, you fight for survival against many kinds of enemies since the infected are not the only threat: facing down other desperate humans is often the only way to get precious supplies.
  • Night Changes the Rules – In daylight you explore the city searching for supplies and weapons. After nightfall, though, this infected world undergoes a dramatic transformation that gives the gameplay a new dimension. You, a hunter by day, become prey. The infected grow in strength, but something even more sinister looms in the darkness to begin its hunt.
  • Parkour-Style Movement – Whether you hunt or escape the hunters, you can move around the city with ease and speed. Jump between rooftops, climb walls, and attack your foes from above. Dying Light gives players a freedom of movement never seen in open world games before.
  • Brutal, Visceral Combat – Fight face to face using a diverse selection of melee weapons: knives, bats, axes, or more unusual tools of destruction. Strike down your enemies, cut off their limbs, save your own life!
  • Firearms – Powerful but noisy. Use pistols, shotguns, and rifles to gain an advantage over enemies, but remember that gunfire can and will attract unwanted attention.
  • Craft Your Weapons – Why use an ordinary cleaver when you can attach a lighter for burning damage? Or wrap a hammer in electrified barbed wire? Dying Light lets you create your own weapon upgrades and construct increasingly efficient tools of combat.
  • Be the Quarantine Hero – Dying Light features RPG elements that let you develop the protagonist and adjust him to your play style. It’s a long and difficult journey from rookie to badass.
  • Choose Your Play Style – Make use of weapons, your surroundings, and traps set by other survivors. Provoke groups of enemies to attack each other. Complete objectives by day or at night. Take advantage of darkness, fog, and storm to remain unseen. Turn the odds in your favor with offensive and defensive gadgets. It’s always your call!
  • Hours of Gameplay – Discover a thrilling story, complete more than a hundred side-quests, and put your skills to the test in special challenges.
  • Co-op Mode for 4 Players – Cooperate with other players in the extreme conditions of a zombie apocalypse. Show your individuality and customize your character.
  • Be the Zombie – Unique online mode where you play as a zombie. If you ever dreamed of stalking other survivors, now is your chance. Let the hunt begin!
  • Breathtaking Visuals and Realism – Dying Light is the first game based on the Chrome Engine 6 – the latest revolutionary incarnation of Techland’s proprietary technology. Built from the ground up with next-generation consoles and advanced DirectX 11 graphics in mind, it delivers a new level of visual quality, special effects, and dynamic weather conditions, maintaining unparalleled efficiency at the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to survive in Dying Light?

LEARN TO CLIMB – Press and hold the JUMP button to jump and grab the ledge you’re looking at. You can start climbing while standing, walking or running. Remember to look at the ledge you want to grab.

COMBAT IS OPTIONAL – You don’t have to fight if you don’t want to. In most situations, the game gives you many other options, such as sneaking past the enemy or distracting then using decoys.

LOOTING IS A MUST – Always search lockers, chests, cupboards, and fridges. When outside, look for car trunks, vending machines, and ATMs. Looting brings you crafting components, goods to sell, and more.

BUY & UPGRADE WEAPONS – The best weapons are available in shops. If you feel your current equipment isn’t powerful enough, spend some cash at traders in hubs and safe zones. Look for upgrades to improve weapon stats such as balance and durability.

DON’T SKIP NIGHTS – Playing at night doubles all the Agility and Power experience points you get. It’s a great way to level up faster and unlock better skills.

UNLOCK SAFE ZONES – Safe Zones provide you not only with shelter but are also your respawn points when you die. Unlock new zones to streamline your exploration of the city.

USE SURVIVOR SENSE – Rely on your Survivor Sense. Just press the button to highlight your current objective, lootable objects around you, and the more dangerous enemies.

MAKE USE OF UV LIGHT – The UV flashlight and UV flares can be used to stun Night Walkers and Volatiles. It’s also the only way to drain stamina off the Night Hunter during asymmetric multiplayer matches.

SIDE-QUESTS & ENCOUNTERS – Complete as many side-quests as you can and help survivors in distress across the zone to level up your Survivor Rank faster and unlock new skills.

AVOID PURSUITS – If you’re being chased by night zombies, try to lose them by changing the direction of your run and use firecrackers as decoys. When your minimap turns white, find a place to hide and wait the pursuit out.

RECOVER AIR-DROPS – Bring them to the Quartermaster to obtain rewards and Survivor Rank experience. Here’s a pro tip: night airdrops are always more valuable!

ENVIRONMENTAL KILLS – Lure zombies to water puddles near electric wires and switch on the power; throw enemies at spikes or off the roofs; use explosive throwables and guns to blow up red gas cylinders; set fire to pools of oils, and much more…

WEAPONIZED MOVEMENT – Turn your parkour skills into a powerful tool of combat. Climb up and strike from above for additional damage and chance to knock down enemies. Jump off zombies to quickly attack from the air. Combine such skills as slides, tackles, and drop kicks with other moves and attacks.

CONSUMABLES – When you’re low on health and out of medkits, look for consumables – food packages that allow you to regain small amounts of energy. They can be found almost anywhere.

WEAPON DURABILITY – Durability of weapons depletes with use and you need metal parts to repair them. The number of possible repairs is limited and depends on the rarity of the weapon. Damaged weapons are practically useless in combat.
