Dying Light 2 Features Cyberpunk 2077 Easter Egg


Dying Light 2 players are continuing to uncover new Easter eggs in the game, as Techland seems to have littered the world with them.

Dying Light 2 launched recently, which means that many players have already finished the story and are now hunting for Easter eggs. Players have only now begun to unearth some of the secrets that Dying Light 2 has to offer. Please note that this post will have some SPOILERS for Dying Light 2.

Dying Light 2 players can expect to find Easter eggs in the game as early as the prologue. These Dying Light 2 Easter eggs are callbacks to Dead Island, which was Techland’s first foray into the zombie genre. In Dying Light 2‘s prologue, players are able to find a record player called “Who Do You Voodoo?”, which is a direct reference to the opening sequence of Dead Island.

The most recent Easter egg that Dying Light 2 players have found is a reference to Cyberpunk 2077. The Easter egg is a weapon called the Cyberhands 2177, which bears a striking resemblance to the Mantis Blades from Cyberpunk 2077. The blueprint for the weapon is given to Aiden by an NPC called “Liquidator” who mentions that he has been here and there and that he has left something for Aiden.

Dying Light 2‘s reference to Cyberpunk 2077 was not exceptionally surprising, as the original Dying Light referenced many different games and popular media. The original game even had a Super Mario Easter egg that allowed players to play World 1-1 in first person with zombies as Goombas. However, it seems as though both companies are keen on uplifting one another, as CD Projekt Red congratulated Techland on the launch of Dying Light 2 via Twitter.

Dying Light 2 even includes a Resident Evil Easter egg, which is far easier to find as the reference comes during the main quest called “Broadcast”. During the quest, Aiden comes across a Peacemaker called Leon, which is the name of one of the main protagonists in the Resident Evil series. Leon then sends Aiden to look for his partner Chris. When Aiden finds Chris he has already become infected, leaving Aiden no choice but to kill him. After killing him Aiden can recover his dog tags, which state that his name is Chris Redfield, who is another character from the Resident Evil franchise.

Dying Light 2 also recently received its 1.04 update. The update was said to fix many of the lingering issues that the game had such as various crashes, AI corpse replication in co-op multiplayer, issues causing players to not be able to sell valuables to vendors, and improved support for mouse rebinding.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S with a Switch version also in development.
