People in North America who plan to purchase 'Dying Light', a zombie horror game title by Techland, might want to rethink their decision and pre-order the game instead, because Warner Bros has announced a really interesting perk for all people who pre-order Dying Light. The goodie comes in the form of an additional game mode dubbed "Be the Zombie" which allows you to do exactly what it says, be the zombie in the game.
In the "Be the Zombie" game mode, players are thrown into the shoes of the undead and are let loose on other players to stalk, scare and feast on their brains. You can either choose to be a night hunter, a lethal predator, among others. Warner Bros hasn't revealed any plans for a DLC which will add the aforementioned game mode. Our suggestion? Pre-order the game right away.
Dying Light is planned to release on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2014.
Dying Light "Be the Zombie" Game Mode
Available Exclusively for Early Purchasers
Pre-Order Bonus Allows Gamers to Play as Night Hunters in PvP Action
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced "Be the Zombie" mode for Dying Light, a reward for fans in North America who pre-order the upcoming action survival game. Reserving the game early is the only way at launch to get the mode which allows gamers to play as deadly predators and engage in the game's only PvP mode.
The special "Be the Zombie" PvP game mode provides gamers the ability to stalk other players as a night hunter, a lethal predator with unique and deadly skills like superhuman speed, a tendril used to grapple around the game world, special charge and distance attacks, and more. As an extremely rare zombie mutation, the night hunter is an agile, fast and dangerous enemy who emerges nocturnally in order to prevent the destruction of Hives by killing humans.
By playing as a night hunter, gamers will earn experience points and develop the character through its own special skill tree, as well as earn other exclusive rewards and perks. This multiplayer mode gives players an entirely new way to experience the world of Dying Light on top of the story campaign.
Dying Light is a first-person, action survival horror video game with a harrowing day-night cycle set in a vast open world. Currently under development by Techland, the game will be available in 2014 for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation4, plus Xbox 360, PlayStation3 system, and PC.
During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning's first light.
