After their upcoming zombie survival title, Dying Light, was delayed, Techland finally has some good news — a global launch date for digital versions has been revealed, as well as some good news regarding the “Be the Zombie” multiplayer pack.

Dying Light will be coming for PC, as well as digitally on PS4 and Xbox One, on January 27th. Retail physical versions for consoles are still delayed for the time being, however. Techland also revealed that as thanks to the patient and loyal fans, the “Be the Zombie” Multiplayer pack will be free for all versions instead of a simple pre-order bonus.

Furthermore, the team also made a message out to players concerning the news:

Dear gamers,

As you already know, today we detailed our launch timing for Dying Light. Although the changes affect only the release of boxed copies in certain territories, we want to show all of you our appreciation for your continued support. Thus, we’re really happy to announce that “Be the Zombie” will be available for free to everyone, on all platforms, in all territories.

We’ll also be giving away extra weapon dockets to everyone who pre-ordered Dying Light and signed up at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com.

We want to thank you for your patience and support in this matter and can’t wait for you to enjoy playing Dying Light and invading other players’ game in the “Be the Zombie” mode.

– Dying Light Team
