Dying Light - Two special assets

Dying Light - Two special assets

With the release of Dying Light in two weeks, Techland has released two special assets that will bring players a bit closer to the game universe. Look inside to know more about this.

The first asset : Harran-city.com, the official website of the Dying Light city has been hacked from the inside. Survivors are trapped inside and the powers at play are making it difficult to escape, so the only chance is to try reach out to the rest of the world and let them know what is happening.

Players can explore the site and see how the city once was watch as the viral horror slowly unfolds through the eyes of the mysterious hacker. Players can also begin to piece together the viral outbreak story and other in-game elements that have yet to be revealed as they explore the site.

The second asset lets fans bring a piece of the plague home with them. Dying Light is letting fans download an official 3D printable figurine of one of the many zombies that plague the ill-fated city of Harran. If you are looking for inspiration how to paint your freshly-printed zombie figurine, take a look at our Paint the Zombie video where a Dying Light concept artist gives life and color to his own flesh-craving statue.

Neat and cheap way of product advertisement.
Wish more developpers would do that, rather than
selling limited, ridiculously overpriced LE's.

Amazing. They were really thinking about it. I like it.

That 3D printable idea is pretty awesome, more Devs need to promote like this. I'd be pretty nice having a whole set of characters from all sorts of games on a self. Or better yet, have a "variant" model code in the package. Make it a kind of a collectable for fans, it would help build a community in an interesting way, having people post their code in their game box to the community forums, then posting their painted models. Pretty neat.

About the game


What's up?

    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (17 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (17 Hours ago)
