Dying Light 2 is giving out a free weapon to make up for the Winter Tales event
Techland, the creator of Dying Light 2, has apologised for setting the objective for the Winter Tales holiday event much too high, which meant that many players would have spent hours grinding for no reward. As an apology, Techland is allowing Dying Light 2 users to collect the event award for free for a limited period, regardless of the result of the event.
Last December, the Winter Tales event was introduced as a way to honour the holiday season with a range of themed zombies and exclusive goodies. Winter Tales, like past seasonal events for Dying Light 2, featured a $2.99 DLC that could also be obtained for free via gameplay throughout the season to encourage people to participate. Winter Tales, like Dying Light 2’s Halloween event, had a community-wide challenge that required players to collectively acquire gifts by killing zombies, with the event rewarding individuals if the community succeeded in collecting the requisite quantity of presents.
