Dying Light - European Version is Uncensored
The release of Dying Light in European countries was surrounded by some speculations. It began with a postponed disc release that came out a whole month after its digital counterpart. Publisher and developer kept quiet and just cited production delays as the reason.
Furthermore, an unknown retailer source said to have noticed censorship in the European version. They didn't want to name details but said that the PEGI had some issues, especially regarding the child zombies called "screamers". That was reason enough for us to check that out.
We compared the US version with the EU version and came to the following conclusions:
Apart from regular violence that occurs in the game, we took a closer look at the mentioned child zombies. We found no differences compared to the US release. In both versions, the monster can be "put to rest" (the animation here shows how the player presses his hand on the screamer's mouth until it goes limp.) Hitting or shooting them with weapons was also possible. Furthermore, some sporadically occurring sound clips were checked but were also unaltered.
Finally, we also checked decoration elements such as wall hangings, drawings, graffiti and so on. They were all identical. Zombies with a headscarf were rumored but not found in either of the versions.
