What you need to know

  • The first piece of free DLC content for Dying Light 2 is now available on all platforms.
  • The Authority Pack brings a new gear set and is split into three parts.
  • The first part grants shoes, pants and a jacket.

The post-launch support for Dying Light 2 has begun, and while small, it's a piece of free DLC, so you can't really turn your nose up at that. Available now on all platforms is the first part of the Authority Pack, which, when complete will be a full gear set and a new weapon.

Right now you can get part 1 of three, which awards three items of gear, specifically the Intimidating Jacket, Intimidating High-Tops, and Intimidating Cargo Pants. You get a number of perks across these three pieces but one central theme is damage resistance from various different enemy types.

To claim the gear you first need to acquire the DLC pack from the store on your respective platform and install it. Then you can find it in your stash the next time you play. It's worth noting that on Xbox you'll need to do a full quit of the game to ensure it's there waiting for you on your next login.

For me, each piece dropped with an armor score of 6, but as I'm a low-level player still in the early stages of the game I can't say for sure what this may be for folks much further along. If you've claimed it with higher stats drop it into the comments below.
