The lights are on
Zombie fans who pre-order Techland's upcoming open world zombie game Dying Light will get access to Be the
Zombie mode, which allows players to jump into the rotted skin of a
deadly night hunter in the game’s PvP mode. In Dying Light's Be the Zombie mode, players can
stalk other players as a night hunter, a lethal predator with superhuman speed, a tendril used to grapple through the world, and a charge attack. Night hunter only appear at night, but they are extremely rare zombie mutations and are very deadly, but players will be able to develop their night hunter through their own skill tree. In Dying Light's Be the Zombie mode will only be available on day one to players who pre-order the game ahead of time, but we imagine the mode will become available to everyone somewhere down the road.
Check out a few screens from the mode below. For more, check out this walkthrough of the game in action.

I'm really looking forward to this game. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt and hoping to be surprised as how much fun this will be.
I understand why companies do pre bonus stuff but I think this one may be a little much. I do think that after a few weeks though those who didnt pre order will be able to do the Zombie mode.
Was Dead Island the alpha game play to this? lol I know Ill be stubborn and say I wont get it, but Im sure it will be a impulse buy on day 1.
Don't care. Day One.
I don't mind preorder stuff but come on, an entire game mode? That's as bad as when Metro: Last Light made Survival mode a preorder bonus.
Sounds freaking awesome, sounds like L4D with more depth. Im guessing this is a multiplayer only mode though so itll take dedication to get the right skills in your tree set. Color me intrigued
good thing i already pre-ordered <33333333
This sounds so cool, almost like a Demon's/Dark Souls set up. A player invades and kills another player, but can only do it under specific circumstances. Feels too huge to just lop off for a pre order deal.
So many games to preorder, so little money...
Games looks better then Dead island, yet there's still many things that I hate: the melee combat looks chaotic and weak, the hero is immune to bites, I wanna know more about inventory and item options.
Pretty neat if it's anywhere as good as Left 4 Dead's zombie roles...
