Dying Light is getting a new story mode thanks to its spin-off DLC, Hellraid. The free content update brings an all-new story mode expansion to the medieval fantasy DLC that adds new areas for players to explore, new weapons to fight the undead with as well as a handful of tweaks and changes to the game engine.
For starters, the new content update improves the game’s lighting system that improves the overall visual quality of the DLC. There are also new sound effects that will enhance the creepy experience for players alongside new animations, a revamped mini-map, inventory system and more.
But the Dying Light Hellraid story mode is the big focus here. It includes three new quests and locations that players can explore. The story tasks players to find and rescue Lucius who is trapped inside the demon-infested Ba’al’s Temple. Players can fight new hordes of enemies while also using a new ranged weapon called the Corrupted Justice Bow or a two-handed axe.
New challenges to face, new areas to discover, and an ally who needs your help — an ancient conflict reignites and you must prepare for an inevitable clash. But remember the mysteries of the Ba’al’s Temple are well-guarded, and the fate of the one person who could guide you to the truth depends on you. Should you succeed, however, you’ll earn a powerful bow, Corrupted Justice, which might tip the balance in the upcoming confrontation with the forces of evil.
We’ll be adding more quests to the story mode with future updates as we gradually unveil the plot. While waiting for the new episodes, check out what’s changed in raid mode, as we’ve introduced visual and gameplay changes into the whole realm. You’ll notice the Temple’s atmosphere is much grimmer now and encounter a new type of enemy — a skeleton with a large shield. Kill it for a chance to get Bonecruncher, a two-handed hammer, but don’t sweat it if luck’s not on your side. You can also get it as a reward for reaching a new rank — Vanquisher.
Keep in mind that the Dying Light Platinum Edition, which includes the Hellraid DLC, is on sale at the moment for 75% off. If you don’t pick up the game before 11 June, you will pay a whopping R1,789 for it.
