Ahead of next month’s launch of the Dying Light: The Following expansion and Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Techland has released a new video showcasing some of the areas in the new region. The region, called Countryside, is over twice the size of the original map, and is bringing in new environments, locations and secrets, some of which players can see in the trailer below.
‘We made sure the new region is full of diverse environments that allow for both driving and free-running. We’ve added lots of little details that tell various apocalyptic stories if you look closely, and placed rewarding secrets for the most inquisitive’ – reveals producer Tymon Smektała. – ‘We’re also proud to confirm that despite the much bigger map and many visual enhancements, the system requirements for PC players remain exactly the same.’
The video below shows the new areas: Granary, Race Track, Hermit’s Cabin, Ghost Town, Lighthouse, and Old Graveyard. Based on the existing content in the game and what’s shown in the trailer below, there will be more than enough to keep zombie hunters busy for more than a few hours.
In addition, gamers can check out the interactive map that was unveiled last week through Techland’s #TweetForSpeed campaign.
Techland has also released a video showcasing the new Nightmare Mode, a new difficulty level that restricts overpowered Easter Egg weapons, introduces XP penalties for dying, ramps up the difficulty of enemies, and more.
“We’ve designed the Nightmare Mode for those seeking a really challenging and immersive experience. Nightmare Mode takes everything that was brutal in our Hard Mode and twists it even more” – says producer Tymon Smektała. “We’re trying to bring the Dying Light experience closer and closer to the feeling of a real apocalypse survival experience where every move you make can really determine if you live or die. We’ve added one bit of salvation though. Playing Nightmare Mode in co-op will earn you XP faster and increase your chance of finding gold tier weapons.”
Dying Light: The Following and the Enhanced Edition will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on Feb. 9. Are you looking forward to more Dying Light? Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
