Techland is throwing a huge birthday party within Dying Light 2 Stay Human in honor of the iconic franchise: Skybound Entertainment’s The Walking Dead comic books are turning 20 this year and players will be able to join the celebration in-game.
The Walking Dead Event is a week-long series made up of a variety of challenges, yielding different rewards from Wednesday, July 26, 7 am PT / 10 am ET, until Wednesday, August 2, 7 am PT / 10 am ET.
Each day will present a new Personal Goal, such as killing enemies using ranged weapons or dismembering the infected, rewarded by a unique Comic Cover – think Dying Light 2 Stay Human meets The Walking Dead aesthetic – that can be gathered by players in-game. Each collectible, featuring stylized art from famed Polish artists Marek Oleksicki and Łukasz Owdziej, is made available only on a specific day, as it is assigned to a corresponding Personal Goal. Players who manage to get all 7 Comic Covers can try to reach the Collection Goal. Those who complete it will claim The Walking Dead memento weapon charm as a prize.
A very special treat awaits particularly dedicated fans: Lucille – Negan’s infamous barbed wire bat! This weapon can only be won by the most ruthless players. To get the item with a blueprint, you need to complete the Weekly Goal by killing 850 enemies in total throughout the event. But that’s not all – there is one more prize to be claimed. If Dying Light 2 Stay Human players prove themselves to be truly ferocious and slay 160 million enemies together, the Global Goal will be fulfilled and everyone will get Rick’s Hat as a reward!
For those seeking to complete the look, The Walking Dead Bundle is available for purchase for USD $7.99, offering Rick Grimes’ Outfit as well as The Walking Dead Paraglider for added flavor. But if iconic weapons are what you’re after, this bundle will also meet your needs, and then some. Lucille is, of course, the queen of that bunch – but Michonne’s Katana is no less emblematic of the comic book series. Add to that Negan’s Knife, and you’ve got yourself an arsenal capable of repelling any enemy, alive or undead. All three weapons are available with their blueprints.
