Techland has released a new trailer today showing off their asymmetrical multiplayer mode ‘Be The Zombie’ for their upcoming game, Dying Light.
Fans can look forward to taking over the role of the Night Hunter and invade other players games much like the Dark Souls series of games. You can level up and upgrade the zombie and generally cause people to have a bad day as you zip around the game world and cause chaos.
“The game is absolutely huge as it is, but to provide the ultimate zombie survival experience, we added an extra element of unpredictability to our nighttime gameplay,” said Dying Light’s Producer Tymon Smektala in an official statement. “Online players can face the threat of a possible invasion of their game by the Night Hunter, an extremely powerful, human-controlled zombie mutation. These invasions are an inherent part of Dying Light, available on all platforms for all online players from day one. However for our hardcore fans who pre-order, we’re offering them a bonus – Be the Zombie – which lets you actually take control of the Night Hunter and invade online games of other players.”
Dying Light releases on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC January 27th, 2015.
