Dying Light Revives An Old Game With Its Latest DLC, And It's Out Now

0

Dying Light: Hellraid is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The latest piece of DLC for Dying Light–the six-year-old open-world zombie game–is actually a revival of sorts for developer Techland. The studio was working on a fully-fledged Hellraid game before it began development on Dying Light, but the project was ultimately put on hold as the team consolidated its resources to focus on the future of its zombie game.

Now it lives again like the reanimated corpse of a famished zombie. Hellraid begins with the discovery of a mysterious arcade cabinet in the basement of Dying Light’s first hub area. No one in the Tower knows where it came from, but it opens up a gateway to another realm that transports you from the familiar streets of Harran and into a demon-infested dungeon.

You’ll wield medieval swords, axes, and hammers to fend off the hordes of skeletons and otherworldly monstrosities out to kill you. There are bounties to pick up to earn additional prizes for repeated runs through the dungeon, and the whole thing can be played either solo or with up to three other players.

Techland initially began work on Hellraid after wrapping up production on Dead Island. The game was revealed and originally intended to launch in 2013, but was eventually delayed with a re-engineered version due to launch on Steam Early Access in 2014. That never happened and the game was put on hold in 2015 as it failed to meet the developer’s own expectations. There was, however, a mobile game called Hellraid: The Escape that launched in 2014.

As is par for the course with anything brandishing the Hellraid name, the DLC was actually delayed, too. Techland originally planned to release it in July, but delayed the launch after gathering feedback during its beta.

Hellraid is finally out now, though, and Dying Light owners can purchase the expansion for $9.99 / £7.99 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The full game is still on hold but it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing it anytime soon. Techland is currently working on Dying Light 2 and “a new, unannounced IP.”

Dying Light 2 currently has no release date after being originally scheduled to launch sometime in Spring 2020. Since then, however, the game was delayed indefinitely, with Techland writing, “We need more development time to fulfill our vision.” The studio also cut ties with writer Chris Avellone amid allegations of sexual assault and harassment.
