Today, Techland reveals Be the Zombie, the coop multiplayer of Dying Light. At nighttime, players can act as Night Hunters and invade others' game but for that you'll have to pre-order the game. If not you'll still be able to face a possible invasion.
Asymmetric Multiplayer Invades Dying Light
in the New ‘Be the Zombie’ Trailer
2 October 2014 – Warsaw, Poland/… Today Techland released a new gameplay trailer for Dying Light to showcase the asymmetric multiplayer aspect of the game. Featuring a game-changing day & night cycle, unprecedented freedom of movement, and vast open world with 50+ hours of gameplay, Dying Light will also offer a full-fledged co-op multiplayer for up to 4 players – with a twist.
“The game is absolutely huge as it is, but to provide the ultimate zombie survival experience, we added an extra element of unpredictability to our nighttime gameplay” – says Dying Light’s Producer Tymon Smektala. “Online players can face the threat of a possible invasion of their game by the Night Hunter, an extremely powerful, human-controlled zombie mutation. These invasions are an inherent part of Dying Light, available on all platforms for all online players from day one. 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.”
Dying Light can be pre-ordered from the game's official website, from select retailers and is also available for pre-purchase on Steam. These pre-orders and pre-purchases come with the free Be the Zombie DLC, letting players take control of the Night Hunter themselves. By playing as the Night Hunter and invading other games, players get access to a completely new character with a unique set of moves and abilities which can be upgraded using experience points. The Be the Zombie mode will be available across all platforms.
Dying Light will be released in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia.
Red dead redemption 2 could be a huge plus for Scorpio because it wont be on pc (0 minute ago)
But with how MS is moving now, I think I'd much rather just get their games (what few there seem to be) on PC. I think it's an improvement overall since it grows the base, but Scorpio itself dunno. (9 minutes ago)
Honestly with 4K blu-ray alone (Scorpio should have it as One S does) puts it miles ahead of the Pro to me. VR and performance that should have been optimized on reg PS4 to begin with isn't appealing. (10 minutes ago)
For MS im sure state of decay 2 is gonna be good but sea of thieves and Crackdown 3 could go either way (11 minutes ago)
And Sony no longer having the power advantage so they need to rely on their exclusives like they used to with ps3 (13 minutes ago)
This E3 is gonna be really interesting with MS having the better hardware but need to prove they have a variety of big exclusive games as well... (14 minutes ago)
i would think MS started work on scorpio before the ps4pro talk started (43 minutes ago)
