The PC version of Dying Light begins crossover with Rust, and the event will reach consoles in May
Techland has announced that an in-game crossover event based on the survival simulator Rust from Facepunch Studios has kicked off on the PC version of its zombie action game Dying Light.
According to the crossover plot, scientists from Rust recently arrived in Harran – the city where the events of Dying Light unfold. After learning about the virus, the researchers decided to study a new deadly pathogen.
To unlock themed rewards (weapon blueprints, explosive kits) during the event, players will have to collect trash, nails, and cans and raid the outposts of the Rais bandits.
Along with the crossover, a set of unique items has become available in Dying Light, including the Heavy Armor Skin, the Rusty Bucket vehicle skin, the Reforged Cleaver hatchet, a homemade submachine gun, and a rusty assault rifle.
The aforementioned kit is available for free on a separate page on Steam. The Rust Weapon Pack (as the collection is called) even received its own trailer. The video is attached below.
The crossover with Rust will last a week in the PC version of Dying Light and will end on April 26 at 20:00 Moscow. Both the event and its associated downloadable content will reach consoles in mid-May.
Dying Light is available on PC (Steam, GOG), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Despite its impressive age by industry standards (over six years), it continues to receive content updates.
