Dying Light Enhanced Edition And Free Update Include Legendary Meta-Level System

If you’ve played Borderlands 2 or Diablo III, you’ll be familiar with the concept of meta-levels. In the former, they’re called Badass Ranks. In the latter, it’s Paragon levels. Dying Light is getting something similar next year.

When Dying Light: Enhanced Edition and its related free update for the vanilla version arrive, players will be able to start earning Legendary Levels. These are unlocked once one of the three primary skill trees are completed.

Legendary Levels, of which there are 250, allow you to upgrade your damage, health, stamina, and other core stats. Unlike other games with meta-level systems though, you only have one character in Dying Light. The core concept is similar though, giving you a way to boost base-level stats when you’ve reached the end of the original progression system.

For every 25 Legendary Levels earned, you’ll unlock a new emblem or outfit. For more on Dying Light, check out our review. Dying Light: Enhanced Edition and The Following DLC will be out on February 9 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
