Techland's upcoming zombie survival game, Dying Light, faces some distribution issues overseas, so it's getting some free DLC to make amends.

In pulling out all the stops for the release of Dying Light, Techland has decided that its previous announcement of certain territories getting a delayed physical launch warranted some kind of apology prize. To make up for Dying Light's late launch date, Techland has decided to make Dying Light's DLC multiplayer mode, Be the Zombie, free to everyone, Polygon reports. Be the Zombie allows players to get in on the action in a completely new way by becoming the zombie in a friend's game.

"Although the changes affect only the release of boxed copies in certain territories, we want to show all of you our appreciation for your continued support," the Dying Light team explained. "Thus, we're really happy to announce that 'Be the Zombie' will be available for free to everyone, on all platforms, in all territories."

Dying Light will be released on Jan.27 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in North and South America. The next day, the game will arrive as a digital download in Europe, Asia and Australia. The physical version of Dying Light won't launch in Europe, Asia and Australia until Feb. 27. Physical copies of the game will include pre-order perks such as two DLC packs and weapon dockets.
