Learn How To Be The Zombie In Dying Light’s Multiplayer Courtesy Of A New Trailer

A new trailer has been released for Dying Light, with this one showing the multiplayer aspect of the game. In particular this mode is all about being the zombie, but a special zombie called the Night Hunter. This zombie is stronger and faster, may also have taken Spider Man’s powers, and will provide a different challenge for player’s to face. According to the PR it is a little like the invasion mechanic in the Souls titles, in that you can invade others games. However, you can also be invaded too.


Further reading of the press release has made the following sentence jump out at me.

“However for our hardcore fans who pre-order, we’re offering them a bonus  Be the Zombie  which lets you actually take control of the Night Hunter and invade online games of other players.”

So the actual taking control of the Night Hunter is for those who pre-order only? In the multiplayer the Night Hunter will be something you can encounter, but only those who are willing to pay full price will get to be the creature.  Well, I guess this ‘bonus’ will be sold later as additional content.

  1. There’s been quite the vocal backlash about a potential game-mode (or aspect of it) being behind a pre-order. If this is truly the case, consider me hugely unimpressed. :-\

  2. Give us a day-one review embargo and some micro transactions then we’ll have the full house! Completely. Fucked.

  3. Invade with the ultimate zombie who is currently unavailable to the non hardcore!!
    Remember more than three teabags is masturbatory.

  4. That’s the first trailer of Dying Light that I didn’t really like. Think I’m going to have to decide to get this or Dead Island 2, not both. Dead Island has a lot to improve on and I still have a bitter taste in my mouth from the glitches, clichéd characters and (poor) generic story, so it could be time to try something slightly different. Might have to wait for some reviews.
