Three Dying Light DLC packs revealed, adding missions, weapons, and a survival mode

Dying Light's Season Pass to include three rounds of free-running, zombie-slaying content

dying light season pass includes three rounds content
Developer Techland has three rounds of add-on content planned for its open world zombie survival game, Dying Light, and a newly announced season pass allows you to pre-buy everything for $20. An Ultimate Edition of the game will also soon be available for pre-order, and it includes the season pass along with other TBA goodies. The first content pack drops in February 2015.

Dying Light‘s first downloadable content, Cuisine & Cargo, includes two intense and challenging missions set in infested buildings that were sealed during the early days of the outbreak. Players will have to flex both their stealth and combat skills to survive this missions’ restaurant and rail yard settings.

Ultimate Survivor Bundle, the second DLC, brings relief with seven new items to aid in survival. Three special outfits and four blueprints for new weapons should do a lot to spice up the action.

Finally, The Bozak Horde DLC  introduces a new map and gameplay scenario for both single player and co-op, wherein players fend of increasingly brutal waves of zombies inside a stadium run by a mysterious psychopath.

Techland’s first foray into open world zombie survival action was 2011’s Dead Island. Dying Light‘s unique spin is an emphasis on fluid, free-running movement that makes the environment feel more dynamic than conventionally bounded game spaces. Players can run, jump, slide, and climb their way through hazardous environments, utilizing momentum to strategically engage or avoid the shambling hordes.

The game was originally being developed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well, but Techland dropped support for those older consoles in order to focus on supporting an experience that takes full advantage of the processing power afforded by the newer hardware.

Dying Light arrives on PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One on January 27, 2015 in North America; January 28 in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand; and January 30 in Europe.
