Dying Light Goes Crazy For April Fool’s Day

by William Schwartz


Warning! Warning! This is a Emergency Broadcast from Global Relief Effort to all citizens of Harran City (alive and undead). The latest batch of Antizin has been exposed to a foreign contaminant. The chemical in question is non-toxic, but anyone affected might experience odd side-effects for up to 24 hours.

Hudson Jenkins, spokesman for the GRE: “All undelivered Antizin crates have been destroyed, and we would like to assure the survivors that untainted drops will resume as of April 2nd. We urge all the survivors to use extreme care when exhibiting symptoms of the contaminated Antizin injections.”

Of course all this is just a joke for April Fool’s Day. If you check out the hilarious video below, you can see exactly what happens on the day of pranksters.

The contaminated Antizin will affect all players who have it in their system and the side-effects include:

  • Uncontrollable fits of physical violence
  • Excessive strength and aggression
  • Persistent muscle tension
  • Severely altered motor skills
  • Obsessive compulsive need to kick stuff

Should make Dying Light even more entertaining to play. You can record any funny moments and upload them to YouTube using the #Bad Batch tag for everyone to see and Techland might just put together another compilation video like this one:

The effects will last for one day and one day only, sadly, but it’s little efforts like these from Techland that has made Dying Light their most successful game yet. An infographic released a couple of weeks ago revealed there are 3.2 million Dying Light players who have amassed 1250000000000 in in-game currency which is roughly 16 times of Bill Gates’ wealth! Players have also used 11 times the Eiffel Tower in weight of Medikits and climbed 11781540km which equals to 7 years of freefall!
