The massively popular zombie apocalypse franchise The Walking Dead is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. To commemorate the event, another popular zombie franchise is paying tribute to its predecessor: Dying Light 2 Stay Human is introducing a set of limited-time Walking Dead-themed challenges beginning today.
The Dying Light 2 Stay Human Walking Dead event is broken up into three segments. First, a set of seven daily challenges–one per day between July 26 and August 2–will award players a different digital comic book cover for each completion, with those who complete all seven challenges receiving a weapon charm resembling Walking Dead hero Rick Grimes’s sheriff’s hat.
Players can also participate in a separate weekly challenge, where those who take down 850 enemies in the July 26-August 2 timeframe will receive Lucille–Negan’s infamous barbed wire baseball bat–and a blueprint to rebuild it whenever they like. Finally, if all Dying Light 2 players manage to kill over 160 million enemies total, everyone will receive a wearable version of Rick’s hat.
A new cosmetic bundle will also be available in the Dying Light 2 shop for $8, and it will offer a few additional Walking Dead-themed items. Those items are as follows:
- Rick Grimes outfit
- The Walking Dead paraglider
- Michonne’s Katana weapon
- Negan’s Knife weapon
Dying Light 2 Stay Human is available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The limited-time Walking Dead event begins today, July 26, at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET, and it will run until August 2 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.
