This Tuesday, October 19, one of the best action-adventure video games with zombies in recent years was launched on Nintendo Switch: Dying Light: Platinum Edition. Why don’t I see it in the eShop then?
To find an answer to this question, you have to go to Germany, where the authorities have not approved the production, thus preventing its distribution through the platform throughout Europe.
A Techland spokesperson on Reddit explained that due to the nature of the content, Dying Light: Platinum Edition is banned on German territory, where the European eShop is officially registered. “This makes it impossible to officially distribute the game in European countries and also in Australia and New Zealand.” It is unknown if they will be able to overcome this problem soon, although from Techland they are working to find a prompt solution.
This black flag on Dying Light only affects its digital marketing in Europe, so all those interested can get a copy of the zombie video game in their usual stores, such as extra life and Amazon.
It is unknown how this ban will affect Dying Light 2, which will arrive exclusively through a cloud version in the case of Nintendo Switch.
The video game from the Polish development team guarantees more than 100 hours of single-player gameplay and countless additional adventures when playing with friends and exploring the world in cooperative mode, as well as a physical edition with various incentives, such as survival guide. And a two-sided map. Dying Light: Platinum Edition has received good reviews when finding very positive sensations on specialized portals such as Digital Foundry.
