Back in April, Techland made the surprise announcement of some new DLC for Dying Light, and the DLC is called Hellraid. Now, the studio has released a brand new trailer and confirmed details of what players can expect from the new content. One of the key bits of information is that this DLC is based upon the unreleased game Hellraid by Techland, which was going to be a first-person fantasy slasher. Check out the trailer below.
Dying Light Hellraid opens up a new portal for players which takes them from Harran to a forgotten stronghold where the hordes of Hell have taken up residence. The aim is to make your way through this dungeon taking out these hell hordes with medieval swords, axes, and hammers. You can play through Hellraid alone or team up in groups of four to take on the challenge that awaits. You will be able to rank up to unlock new weapons, and these weapons will be usable in the main Dying Light game.
The pre-order is live now for Hellraid and it is priced at $9.99. If you do pre-order you will get access to the beta which is running right now until June 29th. Otherwise, you can wait until the release date of July 23rd. Hellraid will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
A few months back, Techland delayed Dying Light 2 indefinitely. When it was delayed Techland released a statement saying:
To our dedicated community,
It was a busy year for us as we continued to work on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly, and we want to deliver exactly what was promised.
We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfil our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information. We apologise for the unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, our fans.
Last year, it was confirmed that Dying Light 2 would be a cross-generational title with Techland aiming to release the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X alongside current-gen machines. Without having any inkling of how long this delay could be we may not see Dying Light 2 until the next consoles are settled as products. Techland may decide to shift more resources to those versions of the game over the current gen.
Dying Light 2 is set 15 years after the first Dying Light and if you want to have a look at the game you can check out 26 minutes of gameplay here.
