Trailer: Dying Light 2’s free “Bloody Summer” kicks off

It’s gonna be a long, bloody summer in Techland’s post-apocalyptic zombie-dropkicker Dying Light 2. Check out the beginning of Bloody Summer.

It’s a cruel, cruel, cruel summer

During the Bloody Summer event, the chance of cutting off limbs, slicing your enemies in half, or simply pulverizing them will be greatly increased. Moreover, some of the Hypermode rules will also apply, with more intense ragdoll effects and hit reactions.

Techland press release

But wait, Bloody Summer isn’t just a visual gimmick. Techland’s slicer and dicer will offer up a few buffs and bonuses as well, though they’ll all come from said hacking and slashing.

  • Chop off 1 limb to obtain a Harper’s Token, redeemable with Harper, the Nightrunner character introduced with “Chapter 1: In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner” seasonal content
  • Cut off 300 limbs to obtain a Cutting Edge axe
  • Together with the entire community, slice off 3,000,000 limbs to obtain the Nightrunner Outfit

Dying Light 2: Stay Human is out now for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the PC. You can check out our review of the base game here.
