Techland’s “Dying Light 2” has been a staple in the gaming community, known for its adrenaline-pumping parkour and intense zombie combat. But with its latest “Summer of Horrors” update, the game has taken a turn that has left the community both excited and divided.
A Crossover to Remember: Payday 2 Meets Dying Light 2
The most talked-about feature of this update is the crossover with “Payday 2.” As players navigate the post-apocalyptic world of “Dying Light 2,” they’ll now encounter infected robbers donning the iconic Dallas clown mask. The mission? Retrieve red diamonds from these formidable foes and chase down the elusive infected bolters.
For those dedicated enough to collect these diamonds, rewards await:
- Secure just one red diamond and earn special UV lights.
- Collect 40 red diamonds and get the coveted Dallas mask.
- For the elite who gather 150 red diamonds, a unique weapon blueprint, resembling a stack of money, becomes available.
Moreover, if the entire gaming community can amass 11 million red diamonds by September 21, 7 a.m. PT, every participant will be awarded 25 Pilgrim Tokens, usable for purchasing vital equipment.

DL Points: Revolutionizing In-Game Purchases
The introduction of DL Points, a new in-game currency, is another significant change. This currency facilitates the direct purchase of skin bundles within the game, eliminating the need to exit the game for such transactions. Five bundles are currently on offer, with prices ranging from $4.99 to $49.99.
As a gesture of goodwill, Techland is gifting every player 500 DL Points, provided they log in before October 7. However, the Payday bundle, which costs 550 DL Points, is particularly enticing. It includes a Payday gang outfit, a legendary hammer designed like money, an artifact blueprint resembling a cash stack, a paraglider featuring Dallas’ mask, and a money bundle that doubles as a potent weapon.
Addressing the Elephant in the Room
While these updates have generated much excitement, they’ve also sparked concerns, especially regarding the DL Points system. Techland, in response, released a detailed FAQ to address these apprehensions. They emphasized that DL Points simplify the purchasing process and reduce the hassle of adding bundles across different storefronts. Additionally, many bundles come with bonus DL Points, offering players more value for their money.
More Than Just Crossovers and Currency
This update isn’t just about crossovers and currency. Players can now enjoy:
- New knife animations.
- Adjustments to the game’s gore level.
- The option to skip the prologue for a quicker game start.
- Exploration of community-created maps on consoles.
- A new game modifier called “Alterations” to add more zest to the gameplay.
Techland’s recent update for “Dying Light 2” has undoubtedly shaken things up, introducing a captivating crossover with “Payday 2” and the innovative DL Points system. While some players may have reservations, Techland’s proactive approach to addressing concerns and enhancing the overall gaming experience demonstrates their dedication to the “Dying Light 2” community. As players delve deeper into this updated world, they can anticipate countless hours of exhilarating gameplay and customization.
