Dying Light Is Banned On Switch In Europe Because Of German Law

Right now, you can’t buy Dying Light: Platinum Edition via the UK eShop for Nintendo Switch because it’s currently banned in Germany.

Dying Light: Platinum Edition was released this week for the Nintendo Switch. However, if you were looking to buy it digitally in the UK on the eShop, then you’re out of luck. In fact, you can’t buy it via the eShop across all of Europe.

As reported by Eurogamer, the reason being is that Dying Light is currently banned in Germany. So, logic dictates that all of Europe must be impacted by the ban. Yay.

Disgruntled Dying Light fans hoping to buy the game digitally took the conversation to Reddit. It was here that a Techland spokesperson revealed why the digital purchase isn’t available right now.

Techland is looking for a resolve

Due to nature of content,” said Uncy_Techland, “the digital version… is currently banned in Germany where European eShop is officially registered. This is making it impossible to officially distribute the game in European countries and also in Australia and New Zealand.

Thankfully, Techland is “currently working with our partner and local authorities to remove the ban as soon as we can,”, however, there is no ETA on when it will be resolved. In the meantime, there is always the good old option of buying the physical copy of Dying Light: Platinum Edition, which comes with some bonus physical goodies.
