Dying Light trailer shows asymmetric multiplayer

Become a zombie and invade other players' games.

Dying Light

Techland has released a new trailer for Dying Light, showcasing the game’s asymmetric multiplayer aspect.

“The game is absolutely huge as it is, but to provide the ultimate zombie survival experience, we added an extra element of unpredictability to our nighttime gameplay,”producer Tymon Smektala said. “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.”

The game is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on January 27 in North America and January 30 in Europe.
