The final Dying Light update has arrived.

by Diego Perez


Update 1.49 has arrived for Dying Light, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch. Although it was released many years ago and its sequel is on store shelves, the original Dying Light has continued to receive regular updates from developer Techland that add new content and events. Sadly, this is the game’s final update, but there’s a lot to look forward to. All players will be upgraded to the Enhanced Edition of the game for free! Also, the PVP Be the Zombie mode has received some balance changes, and the Nintendo Switch version of the game has some improvements as well. Here’s everything new with Dying Light update 1.49.
