Dying Light 2: Stay Human will be swarming the Nintendo Switch through the cloud, similar to other games like Control and Hitman 3. However, if you want to play Dying Light on the go, the first game will be releasing next month for the Switch as well.
Dying Light 2 will be released day-and-date with the other console versions on February 4, 2022. A free demo will be released alongside it, so you can see if you’ll receive a good quality stream with your connection. You can even hop into online multiplayer in groups of four players if you’d like.
Meanwhile, Dying Light Platinum Edition on the Nintendo Switch will come out on October 19. It will cost $49.99 and includes all four DLCs and 17 skin bundles alongside the game. The Platinum Edition will also feature gyro aiming, touch screen navigation, and HD Rumble specifically for the Nintendo Switch. It will have online co-op and can be played locally by linking two nearby Switch consoles together as well.
Preorders for the port of the first game have begun today. It doesn’t sound like the first game is being scaled back either with a fully explorable open world. It sounds like a mammoth undertaking, but open-world games on the Nintendo Switch have been done before. Examples like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt prove it’s possible even on the more limited hardware.
