Yet another update: Good news everybody! The Dying Light launch is back on, at the same place and the same time, on February 26th. Better yet, we now have ten copies of the game to give away to each of our double ticket winners – which makes the wait worth it if you ask me. All your previous entries still count, so don’t worry about having to enter again if you already have. If you still haven’t entered via the comments below, get cracking. We’ll be drawing winners on Monday the 23rd of February. Good night – and good luck!
Update: It seems like the local Dying Light delay has affected more than just the game. The launch event has been put on hold indefinitely, but we should be getting more information about it this week. Either way, until we know for sure when (and if) the event is still happening, we won’t be drawing winners. Sorry everybody.
Original Article follows: This year isn’t content to start slowly, and Dying Light is ready and waiting to kick off the gaming calendar with a bang. What better why to celebrate the parkour focused zombie skull smasher than spending an evening at the game’s official launch with us? Or, even better, with a free copy of the game
We want you, yes you, to join us at the official Dying Light launch in Johannesburg on the 29th of January. Geoff and Zoe will be there in person too, so it could be your only chance to see Zoe dive in for a fabled hug and get rejected…in person! All you have to do is comment below and tell us which of your daily skills would help you survive the zombie apocalypse, and who would you partner up with to survive the endless undead days and nights?
For example, my vast knowledge of cabbage farming is incredibly useful. Not only can I grow food to eat, but I can fling the leafy balls of death at incoming walkers. At the very least it’ll slow them down. As for a partner, well I think I’d take anyone but Darryn. Seriously, he’ll leave you high and dry when the zombies start attacking – he’s assured us of this countless times.
We’ll pick the best ten to join us at the launch, but everyone who enters has the chance to win a copy of the game on the platform of their choice too. That’s going to be left up to our friend Random.org to decide.
The competition closes on the 23rd of January, with winners picked the following Monday. As always you’ll actually need to be in Johannesburg on the 29th for the event via your own means. We’d love to fly you guys in from all over the country, but we also love not going hungry.
