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.
