Techland’s first-person survival horror Dying Light is now available worldwide for Xbox One and they have released a launch trailer for it which you can watch above. However, although Dying Light is available both on disc and to download in North and South America it’s currently only available to download in other countries as the disc release has been delayed until February 27th for some reason.

Be The Zombie Mode DLC Now Free!

There is good news for not only those waiting for the disc release but in fact everybody though, as Techland are going to release the “Be The Zombie” DLC for free! You can watch a trailer for the “Be The Zombie” mode below:

 

‘Be the Zombie’ lets you play as the Night Hunter, the ultimate zombie mutation, and invade games of other players. Up to 4 human survivors create a team and try to stop the invader. This mode comes with every copy of the Dying Light and is free to download.

 

Here’s a statement from Techland about the free DLC along with a 39 minute long developer Twitch stream of them playing the Be The Zombie mode, plus a press release about Dying Light’s launch:

 

Dear gamers,

As you already know, today we detailed our launch timing for Dying Light. Although the changes affect only the release of boxed copies in certain territories, we want to show all of you our appreciation for your continued support. Thus, we’re really happy to announce that “Be the Zombie” will be available for free to everyone, on all platforms, in all territories.

We’ll also be giving away extra weapon dockets to everyone who pre-ordered Dying Light and signed up at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com.

We want to thank you for your patience and support in this matter and can’t wait for you to enjoy playing Dying Light and invading other players’ game in the “Be the Zombie” mode.

Techland Releases Launch Trailer for Dying Light

January 26th, 2015 – Warsaw, Poland/… Developed by Techland, Dying Light is an all-new story of survival set in a city devastated by a mysterious infection. Kyle Crane, an undercover operative, is sent to the quarantine zone with the mission to locate a high-ranking military officer gone missing. Soon his mission goes sour and Crane is caught in the midst of a desperate fight for survival.

 

Key Features:

Go Anywhere, Climb Anything – Whether you jump between rooftops, climb walls or attack foes from above, you can move around the city with ease and speed.

Creative Brutality – Fight using a diverse selection of melee weapons: knives, bats, axes, as well as loud but powerful firearms. Make use of unusual weapon upgrades and construct your own tools of combat.

Hunter by Day, Prey by Night – In daylight you can explore the city and search for supplies with relative ease. After nightfall, though, the zombies become much more agile and dangerous, so you have to use all available means to survive till sunrise.

 

Dying Light will have a worldwide digital release for PC on January 27th, 2015. Physical disks will be available in North and South America for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on the same day. In Europe, Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia, Dying Light will have a digital release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 28th, 2015 with the physical disks set to be released on February 27th, 2015.
