Last night during the Dying Light 2 Stay Human reveal stream Techland announced a special full-packaged edition of the original 2015 Dying Light game. Dubbed the “Dying Light Platinum Edition“, this version of the game is the complete experience from start to finish. It not only includes all the mini-DLC packs like cosmetics, skins and weapons but it also bundles all the major DLC ever released for the game. It is a long list of content, don’t get me wrong. However, it is damn expensive.

During the Dying Light 2 Stay Human stream, the host and voice of Aiden Caldwell, Jonah Scott announced Dying Light Platinum Edition and claimed that it is the best way to play the game. He stated “we are offering to you at a historically low price. All the content – lowest price.” But that is just the issue, Dying Light – Platinum Edition is far from a low price. Well, it is for now but in a week’s time, users are going to have to fork out $99, or over R1,700 for this six-year-old game.

At the moment, Dying Light – Platinum Edition costs around R350 – R450 rand depending on your platform. According to the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and Steam, this current price is thanks to a hefty 75% discount on the package. For some reason, the Dying Light – Platinum Edition PS4 edition discount is locked behind a PlayStation Plus subscription.

But while this package seems like a steal now, if you don’t buy the game before 11 June 2021, you are going to have to fork out the full price for it. Techland did not state in the stream that Dying Light Platinum Edition is on a limited discount offer. They simply made it seem like it is the cheapest and best way to play the game. Which is not the case. Dying Light released back in 2015 and while Techland has supported the game for years with DLC and updates, R1,789 is a lot of money to ask for this package. It costs the same as pre-ordering Dying Light 2 Stay Alive Ultimate Edition.

So take this as a warning. If you are eyeing out this game you best buy it before it becomes more expensive. It is unclear yet when the game’s price will drop again or if the overall price tag might change on 11 June.
