Get your running shoes ready because it’s almost time to fight some zombies!
Dying Light, the highly anticipated zombie action game by Techland, is now available for pre-purchase on Steam. Gamers who pre-purchase now will get two extra goodies to play with when the game comes out.
This first goodie is the multiplayer DLC mode, Be the Zombie. Be the Zombie is a competitive game mode that lets you invade – much like in Dark Souls – another player’s game as the Night Hunter. The Night Hunter is the ultimate zombie with a special set of deadly skills. The Night Hunter is fast, agile and intensely scary, three things you could use to scare the crap out of other players.
The second goodie is a special weapon called the Punk Queen. The Punk Queen is a melee weapon – a crowbar to be exact – pimped out with every possible upgrade the game has to offer. We’re talking batteries and wires for electrical damage, lighters for burn damage, acid containers, spikes, razors … the list goes on. Every wack you take alternates the damage like a really messed up grab bag item, you never know what you’re going to get! When you pre-purchase you’ll receive the blueprint for the Punk Queen which will allow you to craft the weapon in game and as many times as you want.
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. So you have about four months to get your act together, and come up with the $49.99 ($59.99 if you’re purchasing it for a console) that will allow you to pre-purchase this game and get all the goodies.
