Back in May, Techland revealed that their formerly cancelled first-person fantasy slasher, Hellraid, would be coming to Dying Light as DLC this summer, and a new trailer has been released that reveals the content will hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on July 23rd.
You might wonder how we tied the DLC’s significantly different setting to Dying Light’s post-apocalyptic reality. The answer to that question is a strange device found in the Tower’s basement after an odd power outage. It looks like an arcade machine but in fact it’s a portal between worlds. Use it and you’ll emerge in a grim fortress overrun by Hell’s minions.
"To keep the hellish setting consistent, we’ve populated the stronghold with completely new demonic enemies and designed an array of fitting fantasy weapons to slay them with," says Techland. "Hellraid comes with its own progression system and you’ll have to improve your rank to unlock new swords, hammers, and axes. These are more than just pieces of equipment – they’re trophies. Each run through the dungeon will reward you with coins that you can spend to proudly wield Hellraid weapons in Harran. Every time you revisit the fortress, you’ll have a choice to increase the prize by picking up bounties. Whether you choose to test your skills alone or in co-op (up to 4 people), you’ll face a considerable challenge."
Dying Light is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Dying Light 2 is now in development, but its release was "delayed indefinitely" back in January.
