SUCCESS
STORY
INTRO

Headquartered in Wrocław, Poland, Techland Publishing began their journey in 1991 as a software distributor. In 2000, they pivoted to game development and released Crime Cities, garnering an 81% rating from IGN.

Today, Techland boasts a vast catalog of unforgettable video game experiences including Dying Light, Dying Light 2: Stay Human, Call of Juarez, and Gods Trigger.

Ask

In 2021, Techland stakeholders and Xsolla experts discussed an impressive laundry list of needs, including

  • A comprehensive website to manage and sell their entire portfolio of game titles direct to their customers, in one convenient location;
  • Customizable tools for driving traffic;
  • Ability to offer targeted promotions to players;
  • Promote their latest title Dying Light 2 prior to launch.
Solution

Together, Xsolla and Techland defined a strategic combination of products into one comprehensive solution: Xsolla Game Sales, a combined integration of products (Site Builder, In-Game Store, and Pay Station) which allows the publisher to create a custom branded online web store with multiple features.

  • Sale of game keys for PC for Dying Light, Dying Light 2, and Call of Juarez;
  • Customizable website interface including promotional banners for highlighting discounts on unique bundles and premium editions;
  • Special promotional codes to motivate players to make purchases.

Techland Store distributes game keys for any platform, enabling players to quickly and simply purchase downloadable content and enjoy a robust Dying Light 2 pre-order campaign.

Paired with a strong email marketing campaign that drove traffic to their new comprehensive web store, and a prominent store button on the home page, plus vibrant feature blocks, encouraging customers toward transaction completion.
