The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Techland’s Dying Light for the PlayStation 5, Switch and Xbox Series. The Switch port is due out on the 19th of October 2021 and Techland announced last week that they were working on a patch for the PS5 and Xbox Series. No details were revealed but Techland did confirm that they would share more details in the near future, that coupled with this rating could hint that the next-gen upgrade for Dying Light will be out soon.
ESRB Rating Summary:
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Kyle Crane, a soldier of fortune sent to battle zombies. Players can traverse the open-world environment and attack hordes of zombies in order to complete mission objectives. Players use axes, machetes, rifles, and tools (e.g., firecrackers, Molotov cocktails, electrified blades) to kill enemies in frenetic melee-style combat. Red blood-splatter effects occur frequently; large blood stains can be seen on environment floors/walls. Enemies are frequently dismembered and decapitated during combat; a handful of sequences depict mutilated bodies with exposed organs/viscera. The words “f*k,” “sht,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.
