Seven years after the release of the previous version, Dying Light 2 for PC will be released on February 4, 2022. Until very recently, it had been launched on December 7, even Techland delayed it For more polishing and improvement.
This was the latest in a string of delays for what’s said to be a rocky development period, so it might be the type of game you’ll want to buy after reviews drop. But if you’re eager to bite the proverbial bullet early, you can pre-order Dying Light 2 now.
Options are somewhat limited in Australia at the moment. Yes, you can already buy the game on Steam and the Epic Games Store, but you’ll need to cash out the full RRP of $89.95. If you’re looking for more deals, the answer to where the game is cheaper is a familiar one: Amazon.
It looks like Dying Light 2 will be available in third-party storefronts like Fanatical and Green Man Gaming, though the former doesn’t have a pre-order option at the moment, while the latter doesn’t even have a listing right now. You can even buy the game Straight from Techland, although it makes no difference if you do this: you’ll choose between a Steam or Epic Games Store code, and the price is the same.
So expect this list to evolve in the coming weeks and months, but as of mid-September, here’s the lay of the land:
Cheapest Dying Light 2 orders in Australia
On the order of the cheapest, here you can pre-order the Standard Edition Dying Light 2 in Australia. Digital pre-orders (such as Steam and the Epic Games Store) give you three additional cosmetics: the “Reload” outfit, a weapon skin and a parachute skin.
Death Light 2 @ Amazon
AUD 89.95 AUD 69
As usual, the giant undercuts everyone else, but as always, this is a boxed version: the chest contains a digital code redeemable on Steam, although you may not get that code before its launch time (maybe the next day, at best A scenario where Covid-19 does not wreak havoc in the postal system).
There is also a deluxe version on Amazon for AUD 99 (usually AU$119.95) gives you access to DLC content for the upcoming story as well as a host of exclusive cosmetics, all in a sturdy, no-nonsense steel book.
Dying Light 2 @ Steam AUD 89.95
No surprises here: Steam is selling Dying Light 2 at its recommended retail price and it won’t budge until after launch. The Deluxe and Ultimate Editions are priced at A$120 / A$150, respectively.
Dying Light 2 from the Epic Games Store AUD 89.95
The same goes for the Epic storefront: the deluxe and definitive editions are AU$120 / AU$150 respectively. Until Dying Light 2 starts hitting the likes of Fanatical and Green Man Gaming, the game is only a matter of RRP if you don’t want Amazon to ship it to you.
That’s where the prices stand at the moment, but you don’t have to launch a pre-order yet if you don’t want to: there’s plenty of time before February.
