THE FRIGHTENING Part II: Slashing Pumpkintiles Event

The spookiest season is in full swing, and zombies can feel right at home. To make the most of the eerie vibes, Dying Light 2 Stay Human debuts the Slashing Pumpkintiles Event – the second part of THE FRIGHTENING, a follow-up to Part I, Vampire: the Masquerade Event. Techland is also releasing the Plague Bundle (available for free for the duration of the event) and the Scarecrow Bundle (available for purchase via the online store). Last year’s Pumpkintiles and Pumpkintile Tyrants will be back, along with newcomers: Banshee Witches and Haunted Biters. Players looking for Treats can also expect the return of Baka the Unfortunate and his seasonal Bazaar stall, filled with freaky Masks as well as new weapons and items, including plenty of Trick-or-Treats – chocolate bars with special effects. The event will last from today, November 2, at 8 am PT / 11 am ET, until Thursday, November 16, 2023, at 8 am PT / 11 am ET.

Community Update #3

Community Update #3 is built around players’ feedback, mostly submitted via the Community Ideas feature in the Pilgrim Outpost. It introduces improvements across categories such as weapons, inventory, enemies, and missions. This update kicks off the process of implementing all features promised in the earlier Sneak Peek.

Weapons and gear

Perhaps the most anticipated change is the introduction of the weapon repair option. Now, the Craftsmaster can help fix up all favorite tools of destruction, even if they’re completely broken. To make matters even more convenient, players can now dismantle gear as well as mods, and receive some resources back to allow more space for experimenting. Adding to that, human enemies can now drop weapons; with the introduction of new knives and a new weapon rarity, this aspect of the game allows for even more experiments.

Enemies and missions

New challenges await with new enemy variants, and the spookiness gets turned up to eleven, as some Virals may begin to show glimpses of their former humanity. In this terrifying atmosphere, players will be able to replay GRE anomalies as well as look for the Carrier missions – and get rewarded with Carrier and Carrier Leader Outfits. To dial up gore and brutality, the game will also introduce finishers – gory and spectacular ways to kill off weakened enemies.
