A while back we shared the news that the originally-planned standalone medieval game Hellraid would be arriving in Dying Light as a DLC. Techland announced just when users can expect the game. The news comes from a brand-new trailer giving us a glimpse of the DLC including some gameplay too. While we don’t know how big this DLC is going to be or what players will be doing in it, so far the gameplay looks great.
By the look of things, players will enter the Dying Light Hellraid DLC through an arcade machine teased previously in the original trailer. Furthermore, players will equip different gear such as a mace, sword and axe as seen in the video, and fight off an army of monsters. So far, we have only seen skeletons. However, the original game featured some crazy creatures such as a minotaur that rammed into you, spell-casting zombies and more.
As someone who was bleak at the news of Hellraid’s cancellation, this DLC is exciting. However. we will have to wait until 23 July 2020 to see if it is worth the wait. Check out the trailer down below. You can also find out more about the DLC here.
About Dying Light Hellraid
Over five years after the release, Dying Light is getting an exciting DLC that’s bound to refresh your experience with the game. Get ready for an entirely new game mode based on our currently-on-hold first-person dark fantasy slasher Hellraid. That’s right – dark fantasy!
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. 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.
