Dying Light Bill
Dying Light and Left 4 Dead 2 meet again to bring back the Viral Rush crossover event.
The returning limited time Viral Rush event allows you to play as Bill from Left 4 Dead 2 in a new DLC to fight back against the Virals in Dying Light. Also included in the DLC is Gnome Chompski, the iconic garden gnome from Left 4 Dead 2, which can be used as a two-handed weapon against the enraged hordes of zombies.
Not only that, the crossover event will bring the gameplay experience of Left 4 Dead to the open world of Dying Light. Face hordes of zombies in the challenging game mode and survive as long as you can. To add to the fun, you’ll also be able to use a new type of shotgun ammo that gives the infected a taste of fire and brimstone, setting them ablaze.

Left 4 Dead 2 is somehow coming to the world of Dying Light in a new collaboration. Even though Dying Light 2 is set to release in 2020, Techland is far from finished when it comes to supporting. Survivors, we're back with new content and improvements for Dying Light! Left 4 Dead 2 and Dying Light crossover is back! This bundle comes with free Dying Light DLC, in which you’ll find a new character model – Bill, and a new two-handed weapon – Gnome Chompski. The bundle contains Left 4 Dead 2 Weapon Pack – free DLC from the last year’s crossover. But Dying Light 2 is expected to arrive in spring 2020, and so with a little stretching and squinting it's possible to see hope for something more in-depth, especially with Left 4 Dead 2's big.
The event is available now on PC from October 27 until October 29, however, the DLC will be available for those of you who play on console in a few weeks time.
Techland’s Dying Light 2 was announced during E3 2018 and was set to release Spring 2020, but it was delayed indefinitely. Right now there is no official release date for the sequel, but it was confirmed that Dying Light 2 will be coming to next-gen consoles including the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Update: Techland has officially released details about the Dying Light and Left 4 Dead 2 crossover. Starting October 24, 2019, Dying Light will host a 4-day crossover event that will pay homage to Valve’s iconic zombie shooter. During the event, players will experience an increased number of Virals, waves of attacking hordes, an intensifying fight for survival and tons of guns and ammo at their disposal.
Players will be rewarded with three event-exclusive Gold blueprints for Left 4 Dead 2 weapons. These include Electric Guitar, Frying Pan and Golf Club for use in Dying Light. Players will get access to this limited-time event on both PC and consoles and even if they miss the rewards while playing the limited-time event, all three weapons will be available to them as a free DLC download.
Original Article: If you though the original Dying Light was out of the scene than you thought wrong because Techland has not forgotten about its first title yet. It turns out that to celebrate Halloween, Dying Light and Left 4 Dead 2 are joining hands together for one of the best crossovers we have seen in the past. It is pretty strange that we would see 2 entirely different games in the same genre come together and do a collab but here we are.
The announcement comes from the official Dying Light Twitter account where the developers have announced that Left 4 Dead 2 style zombie slaying is arriving in Dying Light. We also have an image that shows 4 heroes in the middle and an undead horde surrounding them which is very much Left 4 Dead 2. Any additional details are not known at this point however we can expect some more soon since Halloween is right around the corner now.

Left 4 Dead is one of the lost forgotten franchises by Valve which fans have been dying to see make a comeback. On the other hand, Dying Light was a solid zombie slayer back in its days however Techland is already working on Dying Light 2 and it is slated to arrive next year in spring. It is good to see it pop up back on news with this amazing crossover and we cannot wait to see what it really is.

As much as we would like to see a limited-time mode in Dying Light, we could just get skins as well however that would be cool as well. We would be able to play as Left 4 Dead characters in Dying Light however we would still love in valve would just release Left 4 Dead 3. We can continue to dream however we are just glad that two of our favorite franchises are coming back and joining hands for a crossover.
