Dying Light's 'Be the Zombie'-mode goes Free to Play


2015 is going to be a great year for fans of Zombie Game. Dead Island 2 is set to be released in Q2 of 2015, H1Z1 has just been released on Steam as an Early-Access Game, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will release next month, and arguably the most interesting of them all: Dying Light will hit the shelves soon. Well, soon... As we recently covered, the physical release of Dying Light has been postponed to the 27th of February 2015 in Europe. To make up for this, the developer has announced that it will make the 'Be the Zombie'-mode, previously only a pre-order bonus, will be available for everyone at absolutely no cost.



Be the Zombie is a PvP mode, where players will hunt each other down as 'Night Hunters'. As their name suggests, these zombies will appear at night (in the full-game), and they're not to be messed with. They have a special skill-set, which includes super-speedy movement, special attacks and a grappling hook. The Be the Zombie mode puts the player in control of this terrifying monster.

Developer Techland announced that the mode will go Free to Play in a press release. Read what the Polish Dev has to say below.


"As you already know, today we detailed our launch timing for Dying Light. Although the changes affect only the release of boxed copies in certain territories, we want to show all of you our appreciation for your continued support. Thus, we’re really happy to announce that “Be the Zombie” will be available for free to everyone, on all platforms, in all territories.

We’ll also be giving away extra weapon dockets to everyone who pre-ordered Dying Light and signed up at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com.

We want to thank you for your patience and support in this matter and can’t wait for you to enjoy playing Dying Light and invading other players’ game in the “Be the Zombie” mode."

They probably would have done this later down the line anyway. Just another marketing ploy to suppress the inevitable storm that arises every time a game is delayed (be it digital or physical).Quote
