You’ve Been Killing A Whole Lot Of Zombies In Dying Light

Dying Light and Dying Light: The Following were intense, satisfying experiences for me — and it looks like I wasn’t the only one.

Explosions in Dying Light since the game's release.

The folks at Techland have put together a fantastic “Book of Records” video for the title, listing how many times players have crashed through rooftops, dropkicked zombies, curbed zombies, ziplined past zombies, turned zombies into roadkill, and generally ceased the physical motion of zombies in crunchy, bloody ways.

Here’s the video:

Fun, eh?

In conjunction with the Book of Records video, the Techland team is announcing that this weekend, you’ll be playing the game in “Hyper Mode”. From 8 PM PT on September 16th to 9 AM PT on September 19th, you’ll have “bouts of excessive strength, improved motor skills, and the ability to dropkick harder than ever before,” according to a release from the team.

If you caught my BASELine on Dying Light: The Following when it was released, you’ll know it was a well-crafted title that blended parkour, zombie destruction, and stark, human stories in clever, novel ways. I have to say, it still stands out among the games I’ve played in my life for how it made me care about the people amidst the zombies, something zombie fiction doesn’t always accomplish for me.

And if that’s got your attention, it would be remiss of me if I didn’t let you know that the console versions of Dying Light: The Following — Enhanced Edition, containing both the original Dying Light and the expansion, are on sale now for PlayStation 4 (in the Americas) and Xbox One (worldwide) until the morning of September 20th.

Want to craft, leap, dropkick, roll, and drive your way through some zombies? There’s never been a better time.
