Dying Light 2 1.39 Patch Notes (1.12) – September 7, 2023

  1. Payday 2 Crossover Event: A Payday 2 crossover event has been introduced. Players will encounter Infected Robbers in the streets and Dark Hollows who aim to take their lives. Defeating them allows players to loot special Red Diamonds to complete event goals. This event will run until September 21st.
  2. Mod.io In-Game Console Integration: The Summertime Update brings the long-awaited feature of in-game console integration with mod.io. Players on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam Deck can now access and play Community Maps created by the game’s community members. However, not all maps may be fully compatible with consoles at launch, with optimization efforts planned for the future.
  3. New Knife Animations: The update introduces new animations for knives, with plans to incorporate more weapons of this type in upcoming updates.
  4. Introduction of Dying Light Points (DL Points): DL Points have been introduced, making it faster and more convenient to acquire skin bundles without leaving the game. Players will receive 500 DL Points upon launch, which can be used to purchase skins from the in-game store. These points need to be redeemed by October 7th.
  5. Brutality Level: A new setting allows players to choose between Full, Limited, and Minimum brutality settings in the Preferences. This option is not available in Germany and Japan due to restrictions on gore.
  6. Prologue Changes: Players can now skip the Prologue and start the game directly with the “Getting Stronger” quest, allowing quicker access to co-op mode. Tutorial pop-ups will still be available for those who want to refresh their survival skills.
  7. Alterations: A new occasional game modifier called “Alterations” is introduced to add short-time activities to the game, enhancing the world of Dying Light with vibrancy and fun. Players can deactivate Alterations in the Settings if they prefer not to participate.
