Techland has released a new gameplay trailer for Dying Light which reveals a new way to play the game with an asymmetric multiplayer mode.
“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,” reads a press release from the developer.
Techland has yet to announce whether this pre-order content will be available for purchase post-release, but it’s a good possibility that it may be. Though cutting out a portion of the game that very well could be a deciding factor for some would-be purchasers is sure to raise some eyebrows.
Dying Light is slated for release on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on January 27th, 2015.
