Zombies are Out, Skellys are In
Dying Light has been out for about five years, and for about five years Techland has been supporting it and adding new content pretty regularly. Most developers will stop producing new content for a game after a year or two, but Techland’s commitment to Dying Light has been outstanding. Even though Dying Light 2 is supposedly almost done, it has been hit with setbacks and rumors of trouble, but the Dying Light 1 team continues to be busy with more ways for us to play. The newest Dying Light DLC is going to take players to a much different place than any previous DLC.
Techland has created such a wonderful world within Dying Light, but being a zombie game, they are confined to the zombie genre. However, with a little meta-magic, Hellraid is bringing a much different experience than zombies could give us. The Hellraid DLC introduces the Hellraid arcade cabinet. By playing this in-game game, the player enters a medieval fantasy world where they battle skeletons who chase you down with swords and fire magic at you. Normally, the world of Dying Light could not provide this, but a little suspension of disbelief will set you right.
The short trailer for the DLC gives off a sort of COD zombies vibe mixed with some Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep self-awareness. Am I the only one that thinks that? Anyway, Dying Light: Hellraid will be available on July 23rd for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Is Dying Light’s continued support surprising you? Let us know in the comments below.
