It seems Techland’s post-launch support for Dying Light doesn’t begin and end with the season pass contents detailed yesterday. The Polish developer has announced plans for several free content updates to the open-world zombie game, beginning with an ultra challenging Hard Mode.
Designed to make mincemeat of all but the hardiest apocalypse dwellers, Dying Light’s Hard Mode will make night time even more brutal, with deadlier, bloodthirsty enemies and a renewed focus on stealth and scavenging for supplies.
”A few gamers have already finished Dying Light and are asking for more,” said Tymon Smektała, producer on Dying Light. “So we’re going to give our community a new challenge that will put everything they learnt in the game to the test. Hard Mode is exactly that. We’re aiming to have it out around the start of March, if not sooner. Depends on how brutal we wanna make this on people.”
If you just can't wait for the Hard Mode update which is coming soon, there is a Super Aggressive Zombies mod that's already available. You have been warned though, it certainly doesn't go easy on you...
Alongside the Hard Mode the first content update will bring some undisclosed gameplay improvements and new character outfits. Techland has also begun distributing redeem codes to exclusive weapons, the first of which is N0A-8DF-09TB, which can be redeemed at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com
Hard Mode will hopefully be the first update of many, what else are you hoping Techland adds to Dying Light in the future? Will you braving the new Hard Mode?
