Dying Light Wiki
Old Town 1.jpg

Old Town is a location in Dying Light.


Before the outbreak, Old Town was a thriving city of riches, proved by its masterful architecture of urban shops to its courtyards and cathedrals. Old Town was a place for the wealthy, but was also the first place struck by the Harran virus. Within Old Town, the player can see failed containment walls from when the outbreak started to quarantine areas. The area is in significantly better condition than Harran's slums which have fallen into further decay following the pandemic.


Many of the buildings within the Old Town are constructed in a neo-classical style, featuring grand facades, marble columns and pillars which support the towering structures. The majority of buildings are apartments, once home to the area's prosperous inhabitants; numerous apartments can be accessed by the player, many of which remain intact, relatively untouched by the chaos of the virus. This can be proven by locked doors which clearly nobody has entered since the outbreak.
