See Dying Light’s ‘Be the Zombie’ Pre-Order Bonus Mode in Action


As previously announced, pre-ordering Techland’s Dying Light will come with a bonus download of a ‘Be the Zombie’ mode. Now more details and the first trailer showing gameplay of the mode have been revealed.

Taking a page out of the Dark Souls playbook, Dying Light will feature an invasion system allowing one player to invade another player’s online co-op game as a deadly Night Hunter, shifting the experience into sort of a 4-on-1 Left 4 Dead mode. All players on all platforms, whether they pre-order or not, will be open to invasions. However, the only way to actually “Be the Zombie” and play as the invading hunter will be to pre-order the game.

Seems kinda shady to hold such a feature behind a pre-order barrier, but that’s how the industry works these days. There’s no going back now I’m afraid.
